The Artist 

With the words of well-known visual artists

"Artist are obsessive people. They are driven by a need to create[,]" says Charlee Brodsky, the photographer who made this photo-narrative. Max is the eponymous character, traversing urban and natural landscapes to find inspiration in all manner of things from bricks and pipes to tall grass and clovers. Mark Rothko, Robert Rauschenberg, Georgia O'Keefe, Michelangelo, and many more artists lend their musings to Max's reverie which examines the facets of why we need to create and how we pursue our creative paths. Conception and production are messy events in human experience, not restricted to the sterility of a museum, considered here through fine-art photographs of a "living, breathing...defecating work of art."
