Coworkers from my last job in South Korea back in ‘07. Shot with a Konica/ Minolta Dimage Z-6.
You know… Hopping into The Wayback Machine via my old hard drives full of photos…
Well, I keep getting the feeling that if I lost the whole last eight or so years worth of photos since I first picked up the hobby, nothing would be missed. (UPDATE: Funnily, I lost 99% of my Korean photos a week or two after this post in a hardware fuckup. Funny as in, “Oh, wait. No it isn’t.”) Sure, I have taken (IMHO) some pretty good shots. But a lot of them have so much baggage with them that they fail as art objects and live only as reminders of things I’d be smart leave in the dust of the past.
What I’d like to do is get some people to sit around me while we go through the hundreds of rolls of film and thousands of digital images, and pare it down to like my best two hundred or so. Photography hobbyists and civilians alike. If both can agree, it’s a keeper. It’s art then.
The rest can go on the pyre of the past with the rest of the luggage.
