Présentation de l'éditeur

A Beautiful Anarchy is a vulnerable, honest, and insightful book about the human longing to create, whether that’s a family, a business, a book or a photograph. Our greatest creation can be an intentional life lived on our terms. For those that already identify as creative people, this book is an invitation to more intentionally explore your creative process. For anyone that’s ever said, “but I’m not really creative,” it’s a call to exhume a part of yourself that desperately needs to get out and breathe.

This is an honest discussion about creativity and the obstacles that stand in our way on that journey. It’s an invitation to consider the creative in all of us, and to recognize that our best work will always be done when we colour outside the lines and listen first to our own voice. Truly exceptional, authentic lives have never belonged to the talented or the fearless, but to the ones that find the courage to do their work, and be themselves.

David duChemin is a photographer, best-selling author, adventurer, and advocate of the intentional life.

“A Beautiful Anarchy is raw energy bundled up in a book, and opening its cover is like lighting a fuse. This isn’t an ordinary book. It’s message is challenging and liberating at the same time. What I like best, is that David’s words are grounded in a life that is well lived. Reading it is like gaining access to the mentor and friend I always wished I had. A Beautiful Anarchy is manifesto that has changed how I see the world. Read this book if you want to make more meaningful photographs and live a more complete life.”
~ Chris Orwig, author of Visual Poetry.

“This is essential reading for anyone longing to live a creative life. This is a book that is less about making art and more about learning that getting out of our own way is the first step to living a more creative and fulfilling life. Nurture the artist and the art will follow.I’ve read all of David’s books and this just may be my favorite.”
~ Jeffery Saddoris,

“A Beautiful Anarchy is more than a book. It’s a call to be truly alive! The powerful stories and principles shared will teach you how to create personal freedom, make your mark and live with passion. Read this book and do something brilliant with your life!
~ Richie Norton, bestselling author of The Power of Starting Something Stupid

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An honest conversation about the creative cycle - definitely recommended 4 juin 2014
Par Matt Beaty - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Pretty much every self-aware creative person that I know has come to the same conclusion.

Sometimes you are at the top of your game, making art that inspires you and resonates with people.
Sometimes you suck at everything, have always sucked, will never make good art again.
Sometimes you're in the middle, maybe you could make something, if only you were a *little* more inspired.

Many of us do not realize that this is a universal experience to creative people. We all go through stages where we feel like this. It's a cycle, which means it repeats endlessly and will continue to do so for as long as we live.

Furthermore, we don't necessarily realize that we have some control over this cycle. We may not wake up in the morning and decide "I want to be stuck in a rut today," but if we choose to watch Netflix all day instead of getting out of the house and making new art, taking in new sights, or taking time to just get away from it all - we are effectively making exactly that choice.

I've been reading duChemin's books for five years - religiously purchasing those that resonate with me. A Beautiful Anarchy is an honestly-written experience that I think all creative people should read. It is one man's experience with the creative cycle, with the struggle of avoiding stagnation and procrastination. It sheds new light on the cycle not because David knows anything you don't already know, but because he is willing to talk about it, to honestly put it all out there, to be vulnerable.

You will find yourself nodding and smiling as you read because you know exactly how he feels, but you've never bothered to put it into words (probably because you've never bothered talking about it with anyone). In this sense, the book is very much like having a conversation with the author, who knows what you're thinking while you read it because he has been there, done that, and (most importantly) gotten through it.

As I write this, I feel like I'm on a roll with my photography. I've been making images I am happy with, getting sound feedback from those around me, and generally I am on the crest of the wave. Three weeks ago I was in the trough and I hated everyone and everything and couldn't imagine making a good picture. This book is going to resonate more clearly with those in the trough, because that's where it is most difficult to be a creative person. When you're at the crest, "it's all good" and you don't need a book about creativity, especially one that is listed in the Amazon "self-help" category.
[David, I agree they should call that category something else.]

Regardless of where you are in the creative cycle at the moment, you need to read this book. If only to help you recognize where you are and what your particular cycle looks like. Honest conversations like these are always worth having - being more aware of your cycle will allow you to guide it, shape it, and in so doing guide and shape your life as a whole.

David, thank you for putting this out there, for being vulnerable and for adding to the conversation about life as a creative.

Now, I'm off to create something. You should be too.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A path to the creative life. 6 juillet 2014
Par T. Kostes - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I have been reading this sporadically, since I have been doing quite a bit of traveling, not a bad way to read it, as it turns out since it’s tightly packed with all the turns a person might take in a life.

It’s a wonderful treatise for anyone making important life choices, pointing out that even when we chose what we might think is the “safe” paths through out life, there is still a high price to pay. I wish someone has pointed out these considerations to me when I was a much younger man. It may have made the path a little less obscure. There are plenty of folks who will advise the “easy and safe” path, but as David shows so well, that’s an illusion, better to go through the pain of becoming an authentic person, following a path of one’s own making than to succumb to a passionless life of routine and boredom.

duChemin's personal observations about creativity are really interesting—sometimes almost a little hard to swallow, even, but right on target. I bought the book because I am mesmerized by his photography and his approach to the art, and I haven't been disappointed. He definitely is more than a "craftsman" of his art, digging deeply into emotion and feelings—which is why his images are more than simple pictuers. I am enjoying the book immensely.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Fear of failure achieved 6 décembre 2014
Par Charles D Jaggers - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
David duChemin attempts to write a book aiming to engage the creativity inherent to every human being.

David duChemin applies the trade-offs of photography to the principles to life, he travels rather than owning a house, a flash car, a big screen TV (he has had a divorce) and so on in order to feed his creative opportunities. He has a preoccupation with how life is a short whisper, gone in a moment, such that every other moment is precious for attainment, as the time it ends cannot be planned. The book has no photographs and is overly repetitive (to the point of being boring), hardly the get up and go it is intended to be; a disappointment from this photographer author turned publisher - pulpar?

For another purpose I read Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland in parallel with this book, not a fair contest but you don’t need to guess which by a long way was the best read, and the better get off your backside personal dvelopment text – example:
"Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?"
"That depends a good deal on where you want to get to," said the Cat.
"I don't much care where –" said Alice.
"Then it doesn't matter which way you go," said the Cat.
In fact this, thought about and extended, covers most of David duChemin’s content.
I gave up reading at the point the Kindle meter reached 25%. This is the point he discusses failure - a fitting juncture. I conclude this book a failed attempt at a new area of creativity, or else a desperate effort to avoid the black hole of bankruptcy he refers to in his earlier life.

My disappointment in no way diminishes my regard for all his photography books or those of his associates in the Craft & Vision stable, his quarterly internet magazine ”Photograph” always spurns me on in my photography quest.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 streetwise challenge to being your creative self 3 juillet 2014

Loved this book!!! David was talking my language. He put the challenge out there as well as unmissable working definition of creativity. His examples and personal experiences made this all the more real for me. I felt moved to take the challenge both in the trough of the wave and at its' height as well.
