ATTACK OF THE GIANT FINGERS: A PHOTO SERIES DEDICATED TO POOR PHOTOGRAPHY!
Now that we’ve got digital cameras and smartphones to take photos, not many of our most treasured moments are ‘scarred’ by giant fingers anymore. But that doesn’t mean we don’t remember that dreaded finger of photography nightmares. In Erik Kessels’ In Almost Every Picture series, he plays homage to those photos of yesteryear when giant fingers attacked.
And if you think giant photo fingers aren’t deep, read what Kessels has to say about it all: ‘In some images, the finger-intruder borders on ominous, as in a picture of a can half-lost in grass at night, part of a hand bisecting the frame. In others there’s a certain poignancy: see the old shot of a young man in uniform. Was he going to war? Was this damaged photo kept because it would be the last image of a friend, brother or son?’
