little chain

Lung Liu's photographs of people in a strange city reminded me of my own love afffair with strange objects. How do we respectfully portrey them, make them our own while allowing them their own dignity and life? And is it ever possible to show another viewer the beauty we've witnessed?

That's a good question Jeanne. Definitly worth exploring

I find that strange objects can have an air of 'abandonement' that makes them all the more attractive...interesting work!

Well...oddballs, faults, cracks in the surface, people that loose their masks...there are such beauty in all that...I think it is so very human to always strive for the perfect, but never are we more humanlike then when we fail to achive the perfect...

For me, the perfect, and the perfectly fit is most often utterly boring. In life as in photography.
