RICOH, RICOH, RICOH

RICOH, RICOH, RICOH
you’re so simple and so pure.

RICOH, RICOH, RICOH,
Photographer’s block: you are my cure.

RICOH, RICOH, RICOH
rocking the 28

RICOH, RICOH, RICOH
You make photos that my soul elates.

RICOH, RICOH, RICOH
You’re so small

RICOH, RICOH, RICOH
Fuck camera shopping at the mall.

RICOH, RICOH, RICOH
Murdered out

RICOH, RICOH, RICOH
You make good photos, no need to shout.

RICOH, RICOH, RICOH
You’re only 600 bucks

RICOH, RICOH, RICOH
I shoot with you so much, I make my own luck.

RICOH, RICOH, RICOH
Espresso and wine,

RICOH, RICOH, RICOH
Wipe away false reality; I was one wandering and blind.

RICOH, RICOH, RICOH
In life, I always turn the other cheek though,

RICOH, RICOH, RICOH
Your inner-flame is strong // never lay low.

Eric Kim,
Why should I listen to you?
Don’t you know, not every foot fits every single shoe.

I know bro, but remember though– you’re your own photographer
Shoot your own reality
Extract your fullest maximum and malleability

You believe in open source and give away all your shit for free
What’s in it for you– do you really love street photography?

I love street photography with blood dripping off my glasses
Hunched over, 5 espressos deep, talk is cheap– photos are dirty
I’m about to turn thirty
But I do it everyday like I will die
Because I want you to shine

You got a mind divine
That was given to you by your mom and dad
So never be sad
Always be gay

Shoot every single day, treat life like a parade.
Everyday is a day for thanksgiving
And giving
More of yourself
To others

The secret to life? Treat others like yourself
But remember, first yourself before your brothers:
Help your own mother and wife
Don’t over-tithe your salary
Rather stack up the Benjamins, then start making art with alarming alacrity.

So stop reading Eric Kim and go shoot
With your creative roots, dig deep.
