    Watch SHED SESSION: Girls In Uniform Perform Like A Star

    Shed Sessions is a series where artists create and perform from my shed studio, tucked away in an alley behind my apartment in Montreal. For the first edition, I was lucky enough to be graced by Brooklyn via Montreal duo: Girls In Uniform.

I mean, if I can give what I hope is a constructive non-anonymous critique, arguably one shortcoming in your photography is the lack of composition or variation. Going through your feed, it's 95% uncomposed waist-level shots of random street scenes, taken with a wide-angle lens at high ISO with un-ideal lighting, over and over ... I literally would not be surprised if you told me that you didn't use your viewfinder. And at that point it's just like GSV.

     asked you: (continuation of the above ask)

    Also, the reason that it feels odd for you to formulate an artist statement is because what you’re doing isn’t fine art photography … to be brutally honest, it’s just autopilot snapshots run through an HDR/contrast filter. An artist’s statement, or showing your work in a gallery, would necessitate some relation to the history of fine art photography and/or to artistic themes or ideas, and most of all some sort of artistic intention beyond the amateur intuitiveness of ‘I like taking photos.’

    I’m glad you posted non-anonymously. You’ve provided me with your opinion of my work and say it lacks composition or variation and you obviously don’t like the way I edit my shots; though I do not use an HDR filter…so on that you’re just flat wrong. Your opinion begs the question; how boring would photography be if everyone composed their shots the same way in ideal lighting?

    Moreover, it’s amazing that you can tell me why I feel weird formulating an artists statement. You say I can’t do it because I am not a fine art photographer. On the one hand you’re right. I am not a fine art photographer. On the other hand, the reason I have a hard time writing an artists statement is because I refuse to talk a bunch of bullshit. If being a fine art photographer means being able to bullshit your way into a gallery, count me out. Here’s a good example of the kind of bullshit I’m talking about:

    "An artist’s statement, or showing your work in a gallery, would necessitate some relation to the history of fine art photography and/or to artistic themes or ideas, and most of all some sort of artistic intention beyond the amateur intuitiveness of ‘I like taking photos.’"

    The above quote was by a “fine art photographer” that took a picture of his shadow in a puddle.

    Be cool,
