the ugly beauty around you.

“Now a photo of a rather shabby looking phone booth is not really what most people would consider a nice, or good photo. But in the context of how we used to have really nice photogenic red phone boxes, yet in most towns and cities we now have open, unattractive metal and glass booths, then it starts to become a documentary type photo, and starts to tell a story of how we’re losing things we took for granted.

When i walk down a street i’m often looking at the mundane, those everyday things that most people take for granted. Sometimes i’ll take photographs. At some point i hope to bring them together and perhaps tell a story of what we have around us, and how it changes. But it’s also possible to take a single image and use it to show what we see around us, yet take for granted, such as an ice cream price list that’s not in use, and so generally ignored by those attending the event.

To me this all a part of the art of photography. The boring, mundane, and ugly, are there around us, and there is an art to trying to make them appear at least interesting, and sometimes maybe even attractive.” Source: here.  Photo Credits: Fox News.
