VIEW ANOTHER RANDOM THOUGHT

Mark Tomilin

Good evening. Not good day or good morning, but good evening. From all of these greetings good evening sounds right to me. Maybe because evening is the time for me when after tiresome day I finally get to do something out of my schedule, maybe it is because of general mysteriousness of a nighttime, which for centuries frightened people because of human weak senses that are not well suited for nocturnal life style. Maybe it just sounds right. What ever the case is – good evening. I began taking my photography classes in 2011 AD; that year I moved to the city of endless summer from one very cold place. I do not want to get into cliché “immigrant story” but my luggage consisted of one dark backpack behind my back and few words of English in my head. I knew no one but my parents; so first I did what many kids of my age would, I got into a so called “safe–shell”, meaning that I was omitted any possibility of making friends because of my fear that they would not be able to understand me. Then, with some great contribution from my beloved grandma, I got into Venice Arts program. I tried many fields before finally landing in the field of photography, some of them were movie making, animation, some different sort of animation, which I can barely remember right now, and even for a short amount of time, cartoon making. Photography for me then was primarily a communication device, an augmentation for my still developing English; but now it transformed into my personal canvass, where I would convert images from what I see onto something that everything can admire. When the image is successful, I just get that selfish feeling of an extreme satisfaction that I created it. Since majority of my time during a day is taken by mine attendance of that educational facility, where one have to visit until the age of eighteen, aka school, most of them are depicting students and their life in at campus, as well as something you not necessarily expecting to happen at school, or expecting to happen at all.
