Sacha Waldman Inspires You
You are looking through the eyes of a South African photographer Sacha Waldman. Based in New York, the images he produces are simply amazing in every sense of the word and the best of it all… He never took a photography/film class in his life. Sometimes it takes him more than a week to work on an image. “You create a look that turns you on….and you move from there.”
To be honest with you I enjoy non traditionally trained artists. Even though education does give an artist the fundamentals to start doing creative work, I find it many times restricting the artist from being completely free. In my opinion if a person possesses a talent, he should just work on the talent it self instead of trying to apply fundamental rules to it. Sacha seems to be the type of person who has this talent naturally. I am almost positive if he was taught the fundamentals of photography and film at an early age, these images you see on your screen would look drastically different.
