Oftentimes, when people say the phrase “art is subjective”, its meaning for them is limited to the perception of art. What we want to look at with ‘Average Photographs’ is the subjectivity of the creator of that art itself. This project of ours is to present a small inquiry into the minds of the readers – what happens when we treat a piece of art as something that belongs to the artist? What happens when we look at a set of photographs with the understanding that they hold something precious for someone who was behind the camera, and that it’s an end which is enough for the work’s legitimacy? Technology today has provided us with means to destroy any monopoly that existed on art, and especially photography.
Let’s revel in it; let’s give memories a chance together.
