How Does A Photograph Stand Out In A World Of ‘Photographers – Can I Help You To Be Unique ?

In a world where cameras are at our fingertips, many tucked away in our pockets at all times, just how does a photograph remain unique and innovating?

Anyone can take a photo, perhaps not a good one, but with the wonders of modern technology the means to do so are widely available to all, some may say this accessibility has meant a loss in authenticity to the world of photography?

Whilst indeed anyone can take a photo, not everyone can capture the magic of a moment. A photograph is more than the snapping of an iPhone camera, it is the snapshot of a single second that tells an entire story in just one frame. Great photographs require depth, texture and genuine feeling; something the simple click of a button won’t give you.

I want the viewer to see what isn’t there. We look through windows constantly, ignoring the glass and frame but I want the viewer to notice the glass, its marks and imperfections, to sharpen their vision through the camera lens. Obviously most importantly in this world of many photographers to stand out you need to be unique, to create something different, to present a new vision. My ‘Photomentary’ exhibitions create this uniqueness, where my photographs are created around their appropriate substrate for the project.

Heavily textured and layered images in my Exhibition collection range from Taxi drivers reflections on vintage rear view mirrors to English Country Gardens photographs printed on distressed old greenhouse glass. Obviously this technique cannot be used with all photographs but as a way of presenting photography in a truly unique way this works well and creates a unique textural element to photography projects.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The successful photographer truly connects the viewer to the image, creating a curiosity and true sense of intrigue. A good photographer allows people to see the world through their eyes and then lets the viewer discover what they want in the image, what could be more unique than that?
