INSPIRE- Claire Martin

''You've just got to accept and embrace that you're always going to be the creep with a camera''

''I'm an eternal optimist, and have blind faith that it will work out- it has to.''

I was lucky enough to see this amazing documentary artist speak at the Semi Permanent design Conference today, I really connected to what she said and how she approaches her photography.

I've missed hearing photographers talk since I've finished college.. she was so down to earth, honest, and inspiring. She is the newest member of Oculi, won the Inge Morath award, and has been supported by Magnum and Getty... talk about living the dream!

Check out her work.. incredible.
