I think my last known glimpse of life will be a series of blurs. Blurs that will resemble a rather mundane Monet painting very similar to the one that helplessly hangs crooked on the wall of my doctors office.

The design alone of these magnificent structures has proven to be among the most developed and successful marketing strategies in the history of the entire world.'-Seph Lawless (BBC NEWS)

sephlawless There are things in this life that will destroy you. And other things in life that will only make you feel like your being destroyed. The most painful and agonizing will always be the latter.
If you feel destroyed and want to give up. Choose life. There's nothing more sublime and symmetrical in the end.

sephlawless I think I share the views of many who have developed a love/hate relationship with @instagram over the years. I'm very fortunate for Instagram making me a featured user in 2013 and even up until a few days ago featuring some of my photos on the apps explore page. To have that kinda of a global reach has been amazing. Instagram has played a vital role in my message being spread to other countries throughout the world and for that I'm truly grateful.
All that being said Instagram has changed and so has it's users. For those of you who have been with me from the very beginning you know this all to well. We have watched new users come into the app desperately trying to compete with others and causing drama with complete strangers. Most of the original IG users that have inspired so many of you have already left or rarely post as a result, further diminishing the content of the app.
Instagram shouldn't make or break you. If you feel the need to spread lies, gossip and hate then I'd stay more focused on things more important in life. You could of been beheaded by ISIS last night, you could of been in Gaza or Israel as bombs dropped, you could of been diagnosed with the Ebola virus, you could of been an unarmed man shot 9 times by a police officer but instead you were sitting in the comfort of your home on your iphone judging others. We can either choose to be successful or we can choose to be bitter and angry at others that we think are successful. Just be yourself, people will hate you anyways.

sephlawless In the Greek Mythology tale of Daedalus and Icarus. Daedalus is held captive by King Minos on Crete in a high tower. All he is able to see are high walls around him and large birds overhead awaiting his and his son, Icarus' demise. Daedalus devises a plan to throw stones at the birds in the hope of fashioning artificial wings to enable the pair to fly home. He finds, with his stone through a clever throwing motion, that he is able to strike one bird with the ricochet hitting a second bird, thus killing two birds with one stone. The rest is history.

sephlawless CBC radio interview:

Daniel Guillemette
Associate Producer, Q with Jian Ghomeshi 'There's no shortage of people that attack others online and that number continues to grow. According to Wikipedia administrators your wiki page suffered vicious attacks and a considerable amount of vandalism forcing them to lock the page soon after New York Times reporter Bernard Weinraub created it. How do you deal with the negative attention surrounding your work?'-CBC RADIO

Seph Lawless
Activist/Photojournalist 'I accept it as part of the process of human decay that's inevitable. It's very similar to graffiti or vandalism. I don't engage in that kind of art or behavior but without others doing it my work and images wouldn't be nearly as effective. Without that human component my images wouldn't appear truly abandoned. It would be as though I'm at a place after hours and it's empty. It wouldn't read well with the viewer and it would come across visually boring and cold. I don't only accept the negativity that surrounds my work, but I desperately embrace it. Vandalism whether it's on a building or on my wiki page makes my work that much more relevant and interesting. I wish I knew every time someone blocked me on Facebook just so I could like it. As an artist it's always better to be hated immensely then to be barely appreciated.'-Seph Lawless

sephlawless Journal Entry: August 8, 2014
Sandra Ramirez, came home from work today to find all her personal belongings outside in her front yard and her doors sealed. She had finally exhausted the foreclosure process. She now sits on her front porch in tears desperately keeping watch over her belongings until they can be moved. In a moment, she will look up at the sky in agony and murmur something incoherent about her belongings being ruined by the potential rain. The light hitting her face is perfect as her eyes well up with tears that at any given moment will surface and over flow down her face in what will be the perfect moment to capture. The perfect shot...that I just couldn't take.
The psychological effects of my work is often times overwhelming. I can't always stand comfortably on the other side of the glass. I envy those that can though but I guess I'm just not built that way. I'm fearing the day that I become comfortably numb.

The last ride left at this abandoned amusement park looks more like the skeletal remains of a once thriving, roaring and powerful dinosaur. Extinction is the inevitable. Survival is our only option.
