Do we get too obsessed by "real"?

Re: not real, at all


Photography and art are all ultimately abstractions from reality.  People like different things.  They differ in which particular abstractions they prefer.  That's fine.  In fact it's an essential part of the diversity of life.   For you, maybe it's the images from Russian projector lenses.  For me, my original inspiration was the large format realist Tasmanian landscapes of Peter Dombrovskis.  I still love his images.  Heaven forbid that we should all like the same thing..... Vive la différence.

Cheers, Rod
