Geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 My first introduction to Charles Anthony Darr was hardly an introduction at all, geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 but consisted of spotting him around my neighborhood, geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 walking his dog and aiming a point and shoot at random objects. Geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 It wouldn’t be until many months later that I’d come across his work and appreciate his photographs. Geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 Until then, geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 I only got the sense that he was doing something– something that amounted to more than just a leisurely walk.

Geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 When I spoke to him about his portrait series, geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 he explained it to me in beautifully simple terms. Geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 It’s a series of people who do things, geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 much like himself. Geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 The subjects are all artists of some medium and confront the perception that people “don’t do anything” or that “nothing happens here” in Tempe/Phoenix. Geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 Proving this perception wrong is one of the motivating goals for Phoenix Taco, geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 so I’m glad to share this work from Charles, geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 who like the figures in his series, geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 “just keeps doing it, geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 because that’s what artists do.”

Geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 “As an artist, geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 you always have to return to your work. Geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 Everything else comes and goes. Geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 You can’t fully give yourself to anything else. Geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 It may seem selfish, geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 but it’s not.  Your work is bigger than you, geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00” Jesse Rieser explained to me.

Geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 There seems to be a notion that the local creative scene only serves as a launchpad for artists. Geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 You either take off from here and make it elsewhere, geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 or you crash and burn. Geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 As one of few local natives, geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 I have witnessed this atone-less climate melt the wings from more than one Icarus.

Geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 “What are you still doing around here, geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 Charles? Aren’t you getting kinda old?” some early-twenties, geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 already-a-burnout asked me a while ago. Geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 My initial response was laughter. Geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 Where would I want to go? I am getting by financially with enough free time from work to hang out, geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 have drinks with my friends, geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 goof off, geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 and enjoy this city’s surplus of beautiful women. Geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 “You wish I’d leave, geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00” I thought, geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 “must suck watching me live your dream.” This interaction crossed my mind a couple days later and struck me in a much less humorous way. Geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 What the hell am I doing living a twenty-something burnout’s dream? Have I given up faith that I’m here to do more? Have I fallen so far that I’m now resonating with the flat-liners? What has taken over my dreams?

Geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 Embarrassing.

Geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 On the other hand, geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 a slight shift in perspective made me realize what a beneficial circumstance I find myself in. Geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 Yep. Geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 I’m still here. Geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 But I’m still doing it, geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 and I’m not the only one. Geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 Being born and raised in Maryvale and only making it as far away as Tempe, geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 I have spent my whole life in the Phoenix area, geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 and I’ve made lots of connections. Geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 My life has been blessed with genuinely interesting and gifted people. Geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 What a great opportunity I have to photograph these individuals who are here in the Valley, geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 amongst the flat-liners, geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 in the hellacious heat that is unforgiving of wax wings, geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 and who don’t care. Geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 They just keep doing it, geriforte 100 tablet bottle $249.00 because that’s what artists do.
