I don’t know what’s the value of photography in this modern society, while everyone can instantly take photos and share to the world in one device, two buttons and three seconds. Professional photographic equipment and knowledge is not required either, while cell phones are the instant device and apps are the unlimited knowledge. Faster, cooler, cheaper. What is the value of photography today?

This instant photo phenomenon has always discouraged my practice but inspired at the same time. I adopt some of the “instant techniques” to create this project, where I scanned my entire roll of negatives in a plastic sleeve without any proper setting and editing. The results resemble a filter effect from cell phone photography, making these pictures really cool and artistic.

How do you value photography?
