In the preface to a photography book, singer–songwriter, poet and visual artist Patti Smith describes the experience of many creators.

 

“The artist, in turn, sacrifices his leisure, the pleasure of being vague, of drifting half-present or merging unconsciously with the terrain. For the artist is driven, is one apart, estranged from all save his one eye."
