Creative Block

Charlie Cerrone (he/him)


Creative block is a series of photographs based on my experience of frustration when I’m unable to perform creatively—that feeling of being drained. Drained from school, drained from work.

I use packing peanuts as a metaphor to describe this state of creative blockage: a packing peanut’s purpose is to encapsulate other objects, in most cases obscuring the entirety of that object from view. These photographs are my visual representation of not being able to find inspiration past the creative fatigue.
