The Myth of Sisyphus and Albert Camus

This photo of Sisyphus I made is part of a series called "The Myth of Sisyphus and Other Absurd Heroes" that I started earlier this year. It’s about Sisyphus but is mostly inspired by the absurdist take on Sisyphus in Albert Camus’ book “The Myth of Sisyphus.” The rest of the series is based on other mythological figures that I think Camus also would have found to be absurd heroes. It would have been Camus’ 100th birthday today. Reading Camus changed my life and I regularly read through his notebooks which, in many regards, I find to be so kindred to myself.
