“My best pictures are the ones I don’t understand.”
Light is Photography posted this one of mine today, thank you.
I’m experimenting with throwing my prints in a box and letting them rest awhile before posting them online. I realise this non-immediacy is anathema to the internet, but that’s how it is. Keep following jimfranks and you’ll see them when you see them.
You could also check out my instagram where I post pictures of my work in progress and some various other experiments for consciousness expansion.
“If I take fifteen work prints that I just shot and put them up on the board, I might think at first that all fifteen are of roughly the same quality. Then, after looking at them for a week, I find that I really like three of them and couldn’t care less about the other twelve. I can’t tell you exactly how this happens. It’s like, I don’t know, cream rising to the top or something. It takes some time, but once that separation occurs there’s little doubt in your mind as to which is what.”
“A lot more happens when you open yourself up to the work and let yourself act and react to it. Every work “talks” to you, and if you listen to it, it will take you places you never dreamed of.”
I’ve been coming back to Rita Lino's stuff for two months and I still cannot decide whether I like it or not (though the fact that I keep looking means I probably do!)
