Christopher Makos: “Consistency is the most important thing in a career”
I’ve always been an optimist. And I try to surround myself with people with the same attitude to life.
In the 1970s, there was too much life, energy, drugs, rock’n’roll, sex, fun. It was a time when people shared, cooperated at all levels. Then there was the dawn of fashion, music, art.
It is worth assembling people in a certain area – and between them there will be a synergy.
The difference between then and now is simply in the words “then” and “now.” People still aspire to love, friendship, happiness. But since this is not so easy to achieve at the physical level, they rushed to social networks, trying to find friends.
I live because I am healthy enough for that. And I live long enough to make sure that living is fun.
Photography is something like a language where I can talk and tell stories.
Drawing takes forever. Photography is a short way. Only an hour can pass between an idea and an execution.
I am a happy person, because I have so many friends, and we treat each other without conviction.
If you shoot cats, be glorified by it. Let people say: “Oh, oh, this is he – a photographer who takes pictures of cats!”
Consistency is the most important thing in a career.
Today I call on all Ukrainians: start appreciating and understanding your country and everything that’s happening here. You have a great history and culture, do not let anyone convince you otherwise!
