The intrigue of pointless photography
Some photography has a purpose — to portray truth, the beautiful along with the not-so-beautiful. Some photography tells stories, delving into the depths of human emotion and memory… and then there’s the photography that exists without purpose, simply because it can. Maybe there’s nothing useful about art photography, but there’s something about the process of making it that is incredibly satisfying. Maybe you share this enthusiasm and maybe you don’t, but if nothing else, I hope you can derive some enjoyment from chasing down the bulb of garlic in each photograph.
