Photoshop | Our Favourite Things: The Bryan Edition

A photograph made by Bryan to express society's obsession with status instead of caring about the actual work itself.

back to favourite things 5. Photoshop  There’s no doubt that one of my favourite things is photography. Pursuing it as a career has been driven not by financial greed, but an inner desire to spend my life enjoying what I do for work.
