One challenge that almost all artists and creatives face is that of feeling satisfied with our work. That we’re actually getting where we want to go. For many of us, it keeps us unhappy in our work. It’s not the work’s fault. it’s our own. We keep moving the goalposts. And no matter how good we become, we’re always holding ourselves to a higher standard.
That’s the topic explored in this video from photographer Kaiwan Shaban. They’re feelings that many of us experience and they often send us one of two ways. Either into a deep dark depression that makes us just want to pack everything in, or it can motivate us and push us to keep improving ourselves and our abilities. Either way, can we ever really be happy?
