Photographer Robert X Fogarty is helping people share a piece of their story, while also showing their heart. Dear World began as a way to share and show love for New Orleans in 2009. Since that time, it has expanded to telling stories from specific events around the world, as well as providing an outlet for people to express what’s on their heart. As seen in the photographs, sometimes the smallest piece of our lives might be able to touch many.
Do not blame those who adopt or ‘steal’ your artwork style. The fact that they are inspired by you is your compensation.
You’re lucky if you’re in the position to be be kind and generous to others. Someday if that person grow as a great artist and someone asks, “where did you get your inspiration from?”, then s/he will say it’s from you. - Hajin Bae
