James Cameron, artist: outside and other and alone

This New Yorker profile of Director, James Cameron, hit home with this line:

“He sees himself as essentially outside and other and alone; he bites the hand that feeds.”

Thats a solid mark of an artist, that they create from the outside-ness, the loneliness, and in doing so they bit the hand that feeds.

Just yesterday a photographer friend and I were lamenting this feeling in ourselves. It’s why I found it so easy to transplant to a new country, maybe why I feel so at home with an airline ticket.

So if you feel alone, you’re not alone, despite the fact you truly are.
