A blurry photography is a mistake, right? Unfocused, spoiled, this is for the trash. And of course you make it on purpose… so there!
The whole photography doesn’t have to be blurry – watch the face in the middle of the nibbled leaf, photo 3, and try to guess what is behind the in line droplets on photo 5.
Make it so blurry you don’t even know what it’s about : you are in abstraction, then. Hashtag according, then season your recipe.
When you blur “a place“, a room, trees, details are lost and hidden, therefore the mood only remains. Persistence of the air, the light, the colors only. Makes your photo more like a painting, maybe : less words, more atmosphere. So what?
Tool : What happens with this concept (“blur it on purpose”) in YOUR field? In poetry, what is to be blurry? In painting, art, music? What about other territories? In communication, marketing, advertising, theater, even cooking?
Thanks for reading/watching! My Instagram is jprobocat. No they are not all like these. Have fun!
I like this guy. He’s a good surrealistic artist. Not too disturbing, but yet… No toxic genius, but yet… He’s amazing, though!
It’s a very strange balance in me. Something’s lacking, yes – but it also makes me feel “I want to follow this guy, he’ll surprise me more in a few years”. He’s good enough to make you want to see more, and more, etc. My left eyebrow doesn’t climb, but I have a good smile, and curiosity. Thank you!
Sometimes you’re less interested by the works than by the theories, discussions, struggles, articles and letters by those who invented it or studied it.
Imagine you’re interested in cubism, or new wave music. You can study the paintings and listen to OMD’s albums, but you could also dislike all of it, and at the same time discovering plenty of good ideas and concepts in the articles, books, letters around these subjects.
Go to France, but visit other cities than Paris. Read a poet, but not his poetry. Focus on trains when you study WWII.
So what? Well, nothing more than :
“Consider other doors, gallivanter!”.
I’d go further : choose a field you really don’t want to like (pick one : Street Art, Turkish Music, history of the Loire Castles in France, early movies of Brian de Palma, African food, or Nicolas de Stael’s paintings), and you go girl!
You could be surprised. Or find harmonic links with what you like, concepts you could apply to your discipline, or other doors to even more interesting territories.

Vrubel (1856-1910) was a Russian Painter.
You can Google Image his name or “Михаи́л Алекса́ндрович Вру́бель” to find his work. It’s haunting, like made of scales, and it’s a perfect example, for me, or strangeization.
When you encounter his work, there’s a chance your brain begins to… like… address his case. It’s a very good indication, for me!
After the picture of his Seated Demon, there’s a fragment of the right part, like it?
