As per the title. I don't get it. I love photographs that mean something to me, that shock me, make me want to keep looking and going back to it. I don't understand why you would cram up your hard drive with photos of an empty coke can on the floor or some tramp sitting in his own excrement? Genuine question, what am I not seeing?

It seems you judge the whole genre by the bad examples you see. One could do that for every segment of photography, but I'd rather judge by the good and excellent images and strive to be able to add some of those.
