The Photographic Cliché

The morning just disappeared on me, sucked into a string of never-ending links and web searches about … photographic clichés. It started with good intentions then someone opened the darkroom door and ruined everything.

That someone, of course, was me …

Regardless, this is a roundabout way of getting to this 2011 post by Martin Parr about photographic clichés.

Somewhere, in all of my reading this morning, formed an idea for a fall assignment about shooting clichés.

Funny thing is, I didn’t start looking for photographic clichés, I started by looking for clichéd photography phrases like, “sharp as a tack.” Never found a list like that …

Now I need to go find a petrol station to document to make Mr. Parr happy.
