    What exactly is brilliant about this? This look and concept is so common now. Sure you can like it, but it’s not “brilliant.” Words like that are thrown around too much, cause it seems to carry more merit than “awesome.” This series is kinda funny or trendy or aesthetically pleasing. Not brilliant.

    • “about the emergence and development of ideas and concepts, when is an idea interesting enough to pursue and realize” – quoted from PUTPUT post on the Der Greif blog.

      i’m exploring the point at which an idea is deemed interesting enough to pursue as well. the images are beautifully shot and addressing something i think about so this work resonates with me.

      just my two cents, you’re entitled to your opinion but it’s funny to me that you’re so specific in the things that this work can and cannot be.

        I get it, I’m just saying that everyone is exploring this right now. I just don’t see what makes this any different (brilliant) than the rest of the work like it. My problem isn’t the work itself, it’s everyone praising it for being unique when it’s a trend. I’m about to graduate from art school, I’m just tired of it.

      • if you could point me to some work you personally deem brilliant (and i’m not be facetious here) i would love to see some work that is different and new and worth sharing

        Ah, makes sense. Everyone knows everything when they are graduating from art school. – Signed an “art school graduate”

      Art is subjective. Just because you dislike it doesn’t mean everybody has to dislike.

Photographer Spotlight: Angeles Peña

“Aguas de Montaña” is a journey into The Andean Patagonia, a desolate territory where photographer Angeles Peña lived all of her childhood.

She says, “In a world that spins faster and faster I feel an enormous necessity to focus on the details and the beauty of what still remains. I find myself with a nature that sustains itself but can fall at any moment. It is something that surpasses me and I cannot stop observing.”

See the rest of the series below.
