Photographic nihilism means:
What is the point of making photos? They are insignificant anyways.
Nihilism: the (loser) philosophy that ‘nothing has meaning, thus I shall do nothing’ (Arthur Schopenhauer’s philosophy). Unfortunately this type of nihilistic thinking victimizes intelligent (atheist) individuals. If we live in a world without god, or a cosmic “reason” to life — why do anything?
A child doesn’t need a reason to play
We gotta take ourselves and life less seriously.
When we see kids playing on a playground, we don’t ask them:
What is the MEANING or the PURPOSE behind your playing?
The kids would simply look at you blank-faced, and say something like:
It is fun!
My thoughts on the good life
Why I have the happiest life:
- Least amount of stresses, obligations.
- No schedule everyday; I improvise everyday.
- No debt.
- Everyday engaging in some sort of fun physical and artistic activity.
