A Lack of Focus 2


I must confess–I do not consider myself to be a photographer, and certainly not an artist. Indeed, although I am prolific and post frequently, I don’t like my work very much. That’s okay; it’s what motivates me to continue–the prospect of getting better. For the most part, I’m content to be a writer with a camera. Below is a sampling from one of my projects in which I try to destroy the idea that photos must be focused and correctly exposed, with accurate color and lucid contrasts. Instead, I believe you can do everything wrong, and if your composition is good, you’ve made a good photo. (Good enough for a writer with a camera, anyway.) With that hypothesis in mind, I set out with my cell phones (and rarely, camera) to see what I could come up with.
