Peter Lindbergh über Kreativität

Creativity is the basis of self-expression. Why are some people

supposedly more creative than others, and why can't others open

themselves up enough to be able to express who they are?

Creation is the birth of something, and something cannot come from

nothing. When someone creates something: a painting, a poem, a

photograph, the creativity comes from an idea, from a feeling, from

emotion, or from a combination of ideas, feelings and emotions that are

somehow 'reborn' from all our experiences and perspectives.

Creativity is the desire to express ourselves. To formulate these

expressions, we have to draw from our reservoir of experience, dreams,

desires and experimentation and mix together what was, what is, and

what could be... I don't think you can learn it, it is rather something that

evolves. Your perception of everything in your life fills up this reservoir.

Some people are drawn to create and express themselves, others are

drawn to reflect, to analyze. But in the end, they all could be creative if

they had the desire to explore the way in which they are integrated in the

world of their experiences. Because creativity is really a rebirth, a true

tone we feel for ourselves and for our world. Then our work becomes a

real part of who we are. Maybe all this is a question of how deep we are

willing to go...
