A while ago I wrote an article about philosophy with photography. I've always believed that having a deep understanding of the WHY is super important when creating art.

I believe that because in order to inspire and make an impact on people, you need to understand it at a philosophical depth. Because when you do this, it allows you to think differently that allows you to create very potent stories.

This is what I created and if you take the time to understand it, the meaning is beautiful!

The charts are not finished without the third one. This chart puts the entire story into perspective and is the most fun chart to look at! I use an analogy of a building to represent what a powerful story is.
