Street Photography & Connecting More Deeply With The Creative Process
I am Juliette Mansour and “The Additional F-Stop” is a metaphor for lessons I’ve learned in connecting more deeply with the creative process. My primary method is through street photography – both digital and film. In my hometown of Atlanta, Georgia and wherever I travel, I shoot digital and film formats.
My turning point as a took place in 2009 when I was introduced to the haunting photographs of the enigmatic Vivian Maier. At that time, I became more serious about crafting a style that merges my devotion for strengthening my awareness of life, who we are, and how we interact in the world together with my fascination with candid snapshots of our human experiences.
That’s when I began sharing how I use my own work to become more mindful and improve my creative process. Creativity is not reserved for artists alone. Stephen Covey says, “Every human has four endowments – self awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination. These give us the ultimate human freedom… The power to choose, to respond, to change.”
