Photographer Captured the Beauty of Japan, and it Changed Him Forever

Anthony Presley is a photographer who recently shared his inspiring story with the readers of Bored Panda. Ever since he was kid, Presley had a dream of traveling to Japan and enjoying its culture, nature, and architecture. This dream became reality in the most unexpected moment.

After years of experimenting with different styles of photography and improving his skills, something weird happened. Presley had a feeling that his work is not good and he no longer enjoyed taking photos. But his trip to Japan changed everything.

“When I arrived, something internally happened to me. My creativity burst, and it was like the barrier that was in my head and spirit were finally ripped down. What I was experiencing was a sense of completeness, and I noticed a dramatic change in my work. When I was photographing and editing my work, I stopped thinking about will this be liked. Instead, I started working on what felt right. I was finally happy with what I was doing and it was exciting to me.”

Presley wanted to share his experience with as many people as possible and show that overcoming artist’s block is hard, but possible. If you have a dream, you must fight for it!
