Writing + Photography

Memoirs and musings of Darius Bashar. Toronto portrait photographer and writer, in pursuit of all things real, raw and intimate. 


A voice whispered in my ear, as I was about to fall asleep last night.

"To embrace your greatness, you must let that part of you die that obsesses with being fully understood. You are a wine that is not for every tongue. Celebrate your uniqueness and do not waste what precious time you have left, making yourself bland, just so you'd be more appealing to the masses. Let go of that desire to please. There is nothing for you out there.

What you seek, has already been found.

Take a breath. Close your eyes.

It was there, hiding in plain sight, all this time."
