The Eiffel Tower captured on B&W film.
This is a photo that has sat on my hard drive for quite some time. It's actually one of my favorite photos I took with this particular film stock & on this trip as a whole. This is just one of hundreds of photos that I tend to see myself to sitting on. Photos that I have saved for certain projects (this one will likely feature in something I've got in the works currently so consider this an exception). I believe these reservations stem from a desire or hope that these photos may form a part of a greater more significant piece of work. In a lot of cases they do or eventually will.
Considering this, the more time I spend on this platform the more I become aware of it's flaws as an artist. There are undeniable limitations in how a narrative can be effectively delivered in what is often a very short-lived experience or exposure to an artist's work. A scroll, a like, a follow, an un-follow, a generic copy pasted comment.
It's a slightly pessimistic view on this platform that I choose to engage with so consistently & I am well aware of its many benefits. For me it more or less solidifies the importance of creating content that sits outside of here & engages people at a more significant level.
If anyone has any thoughts on this I'd like to hear them too. 🤷♂️ Also I am aware this isn't the Eiffel Tower. ~ - 5 days ago
