Outcast Captures - A Photo Series Experiment
Throughout the months of April and May (and perhaps beyond that) I will be sharing a series of posts - an experiment if you will - on particular yet often unrelated details found in particular spaces; photos that were taken for no particular reason at all, other than the fact that I liked the look of the shot/thing/item/place at the time. Details that have firstly caught my eye and secondly caused a quick relay from said eye to my trigger-happy index finger.
Over the years I have taken stacks and stacks of seemingly random and miscellaneous shots. Some of the images I absolutely adore, and some are merely intriguing. My wish is that you might enjoy them too.
So, after a long hard ponder as to what to do with all these outcast captures, I've decided to share them with the world and basically see what happens. I think it might be better than letting them rest like paintings in a closet in an abandoned home. AKA my old hard-drive.
I first started playing with this idea (although it is not a unique concept by any stretch of the imagination) on Instagram, placing some of my shots from the Zeitz MOCAA on my profile as "stories". Additionally, I have been following other 'Instagramers' and their accounts where they are doing something similar (without realising perhaps) with great interest; and I really enjoy seeing each of their new shots pop-up in my feed. One of my favourites this past week has been that of @elinista_.
If this kind of post strikes your fancy and you're liking (or hating) what I am doing, please make my day and let me know about what you think of my images, or perhaps this whole concept in general, in the comments below :)
Check back soon for the first batch of posts!
Thank you for being awesome.
