“Well, this was fun. Looking at all these images was a great experience and pleasure.
Many of the images were good, well executed and showing voice and narrative. Among those, unfortunately, not all were a good fit for the subject but I would have chosen them under a different headline.
Some of the images were surprising and subtle and ambiguous and that is really what I am looking for when it comes to art in general. Successful photography always leaves room for the story of the viewer to click with the one of the artist. There is always a narrative that goes deeper than the purely personal. That’s what we are looking for as photographers and artists.
Concerning the majority of images which didn’t make the cut I would like to say that I see a genuine desire for expression that gets cut short by the overuse of props and fashionable editing.
To sum up my experience with the images I have chosen, I think there is a good deal of new photography out there, worth watching and following.”
