Josh Kern became obsessed with documenting the world around him. His camera was with him everywhere and it somehow became a part of him. It gave Kern the permission to not be shy and the ability to show how intense and beautiful he perceives life.
"I found something where I can shamelessly express what I feel, my critical view on our generation and myself and my love for life in general."
With time, he also started to share pages of his notebooks and it was one of the scariest things he says he has ever done.
"By sharing these things, I realised that not only there are so many other people who felt the exact same things as I did, but that the rest of them don’t even care. And it was the best realisation I could have ever made."
So Kern spent most of his nights flipping through old notebooks, finding new series, taping everything together, only to rip it apart and to start all over again. Becoming obsessed with the idea of letting other people feel the same things as he do.
"It's somehow funny that the most hated part of myself became my most loved one."
