Null Paradox Concept & Photography | Tom Libertiny

Scheming

I recently learned a new word from my friend Charlee HM:  scheming. Sounds ominous. But the context in which she used it was her observation of the planning that AJ Martina and I were doing while on the recent Gothic Girl Art Magazine photoshoot with Charlee.  And in that context, yes, AJ and I were scheming.…

Now | 2018

One of my professor’s hated when I used the word “interesting” in a discussion because it didn’t tell him much about my viewpoint, which is what he was looking for…
