Stock Photography Art Project

One day last week I was reading about stock photographs and I became suddenly obsessed with the idea of taking them myself. Prior to that day I had never thought even once about the subject. Primarily because, as we all know, stock photos are disturbing, oppressive, and slightly nauseating. It was this element of filth itself that drew me to the idea.

This project has had a surprisingly negative effect on me. All these stock photos have given me a violent, unfavorable reaction! Their repellent nature proves to be much, much worse once you have scratched the surface and really delved into them. My initial enthusiasm has given way to a desire to run away and never look back.

In conclusion, be careful, this type of art has the ability to fracture your psyche, and should be approached with caution!
