Tributes are always tricky. You have to walk a fine line between inspiration and mockery, because the truth is, nothing you can do with a camera or paint will ever compare to the fire that was the real Anais Nin, so don’t even try to capture her likeness, her expressions, her manner of being. In doing so you’re more likely to create a sad shadow of the artist, and only highlight your limitations as a photographer. Instead, go for creating photography that captures the mood of Anais Nin’s writing – sensual, poetic, filled with hunger and passion. Now that you can do beautifully while also honoring the artist that inspired it.
