Dead Yard / SML

SML Flickr Set: Dead Yard / SML Projects (Thumbnails / Detail / Slideshow)


Composition studies through the intentional use of repulsive objects as subject matters such that the viewer will focus on forms, lines and colors and not the beauty of the subject matter.


This is a fun one. I always thought that it is a very unreal experience when photographers present portfolios with perfect bodies, flowers, settings. It also disturbs me when it is often the subject and not the photography that people tend to respond to. Since i believe that photography is about composition and visual relationships, I started taking photographs of subjects that will otherwise be considered repulsive outside of its context.

The response I receive is interesting. People tend to have a mixed feeling about them--they appear to be drawn to the composition, but at the same time do not wish to hang dead things on their walls. This fulfills my intention and as such has driven me for more.
