    "All things are photographable" thread

    That was Garry Winogrand. I'm sure you all have heard some variation of the quote (from the wiki):

    "Photography is not about the thing photographed. It is about how that thing looks photographed."
    "I photograph to see what the world looks like in photographs."
    "All things are photographable."
    "I don't have anything to say in any picture. My only interest in photography is to see what something looks like as a photograph. I have no preconceptions."

    So....post your photographs that you took of something/someone/etc that you just wanted to see photographed.
    ;-)
    (I do this A LOT)

    Here's just a couple....

    Good idea. I came upon this image in a gravel pit shooting area in suburban MA. about 1973. Someone had found a mannequin of a small boy and used it for target practice. Then possibly someone else had come along and arranged the broken head parts on the hood of an old truck that had also been blasted full of holes.

    Something about the scene rather frightened me and begged for an image. I rushed home and returned with 35mm and 4X5 cameras. This with a speed graphic outfitted with a Leitz Summar macro lens about wide open as I recall. Panatonic X in Microdol; thin negative; with a V750 scan and PS revival.

    This at trying times during the Vietnam war and was the first inspiration for a series on violence.

    It is all relative, but I surprised my friend when setting up the 8x10 for this...a clearing on his property, instead of 'pure nature'

    I had been going to and from a beach over a 6 month period, shooting abstracts.

    Ebony 4x5, Betterlight Super6K



    a whale had beached itself, and was slowly being absorbed by beach and 'inhabitants'.
    about 5 months into the decomposition, I set up the 4x5.. This shot is a little closer than 'life-size'

    (took about a week for the smell to leave my nose)
