The unseen photography of 2022

The unseen photography of 2022

Happy 2023 !

When I look through my library, some pictures keep catching my eye — yet I never come around to share them. This made me wonder why.

I usually try to rationalize why a picture works. Is it because there is an interesting story ? Maybe the elements balance each other ? Could there be some hidden repetitions ?

I couldn’t explain these pictures. Despite this, there must be a reason why I keep coming back to them. A certain « je ne sais quoi » if you’ll excuse my French. In the past, some of my most appreciated pictures have been some that I dismissed initially, for that exact reason.

So here are the forgotten shots of 2022.

The more you learn about photography — or any topic — the more you try ticking mental boxes. This can lead to prematurely dismissing intuition in favor of fitting into established frameworks.

In the early stages, there’s a certain liberation in not knowing what you’re doing. Embracing emotions can be more pleasant than cold-hearted rationalization.

In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert’s there are few.

All the best for the year ahead,
