Recently I have watched online a documentary about Sally Mann, a well known American photographer, who has always made a point of making art out of the ordinary. It was very good and insightful into her work and her life in general.
She shows us that the quotidian and the mundane can be very satisfying aesthetically, if you just take the time to stop and look. It’s the little things sometimes that make all the difference. Sometimes it can be a shape, a colour, a texture or all of them at the same time.
I have a similar approach, in the sense that I always look for the little eye catching details, that sometimes are not there for less observant people. A bit like when you are a child and that feeling of amazement you get while you discover the world around you. Thinking about it, my page is a reflection of what I see and choose to highlight, my daily life discoveries and almost a way of cataloging memories of my quotidian. I am so far enjoying it very much.
