The Week On EyeEm: Volume 48

By Loren Lazic - 3 min read

Our weekly round-up of outstanding content uploaded onto EyeEm, each volume of The Week on EyeEm is unique - echoing certain details, social narratives, and creative techniques shaping our world. This week we are bringing you a thought-provoking curation and commentary from our Photo Editor, Loren Lazic.

As photographers taking photos, we look out, around, ahead. Gazing at the final picture, we look inwards, downwards, deep. It’s a continuous cycle, that produces wonderful works of creativity. But sometimes, the camera needs to be put down, so we can take a breather - and that’s okay too.

Try to ignore the feelings of guilt that creep up when you have left your camera at home and there is a painstakingly beautiful scene that cannot be recreated again. Try instead to just be there and soak up the experience.

Know that this break of seeing life through a lens is well-needed and well-earned. Know that this time is needed in order to solely reflect within. And know that in due time, you will pick up your camera again, seeing more clearly than ever before.

“Rest nurtures creativity, which nurtures activity. Activity nurtures rest, which sustains creativity. Each draws from and contributes to the other.”

— Kim John Payne
