Sometimes I look at a photographers website and I can’t really figure out why they organize their work the way they do. There are titles and series but there really doesn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason to it, which I don’t mind actually, depending on the photographer of course. I’ve called for photographers to write more, but I’m also a hypocrite because I don’t think some of them should write anything and should just put their whole mess of photographs out into the world and let other people assemble them how they may.
Editing and assembling photographs is what I enjoy most about running this site. Sometimes I feel a bit strange about it because making random selections from a photographers website can create a distorted view of their work. Then again, I think it can also be incredibly important because it gives the photographer another perspective on their work, and hopefully some new ideas on where to take it in the future.
That’s what was basically going through my mind as I was putting together this feature of Cedric Monot’s work.
