Why is nobody a deeper thinker?! Look at the name of this piece people. "All my Love."
Sure, it's a feather on a plate. But obviously there is some thought to it. The artist didnt just go, "OH YEAH! LET'S CHOOSE TWO RANDOM OBJECTS, PUT THEM TOGETHER, AND TAKE A PICTURE!!" So stop hating.
To me, this symbolizes what people will do for the ones they love. For example, when it can't find any food, a mother bird might, if it could, give all its feathers to its babies as food. Hence the feather on a plate! Surprise surprise, the artist actually DID spend time thinking about this.
I've seen a lot of horrible selections in terms of DD's, but honestly I don't think this is horrible. It's just too simple to have much thought or creativity, that being said, I didn't think of it, nor did any of you, the artist in question did. Which means - it's not as simple as we want to believe. It's good, it's just not as good as the rest of the artist's photography.
I'm sorry, and I get the "light as a feather" thing, but minimalistic my ass, this is barely anything! I'm apologize if I come on a little too harsh, but how did this get a DD? Please? Someone explain this to me?
Just saying, by extension that would make a plain sheet of paper innovative and clever. Back to basics (imo) should mean simple, clean photography of the world as we know it in it's natural state as we find it today. Not a feather on a plate.
It's not just the feather on the plate, it's the lighting and the focus that made it quite special. What's even more is that you can view this deviation many ways and make your own meaning for it. No offense to you, by the way, I don't intend to be offensive!
