Artist Statements

I have been trying to write my philosophy on photography and artist statement for quite a while with very little to show for it. Every time I try to verbalize my photographic impulses in an academic way all the creative synapses in my brain start to hemorrhage and I gain a strong desire to play video games. (Lets be honest when your brain shuts down the only thing you can still effectively do is play video games. Or if you want to shut your brain down video games work to accomplish this as well.)

Honestly who hasn't read an artist statement that fits this description to the tee? Part of me wishes that this particular stereotype wasn't true but alas, I fear it is more true than most artists would be willing to admit.
