In rereading The Zen of Creativity again, I discovered a paragraph where he talks about how being different doesn't make you original or unique in your creative practice. This week's podcast dives into how we approach our photography and photographic work as it relates to originality. You often read about how important it is to be different in photography to stand out from the crowd. Yet, when you look at photographs are they really that unique or even that different. I many cases, photos often look the same even when different. So what is it that we should focus on rather than just trying to be different. Originality comes from the work origin which in turn means from the source or place where something arises or is derived. It isn't applying something different in the darkroom or photoshop. Originality comes from a new source or place. Shouldn't our goal be to find originality in our work rather than just trying to be different?
