What do you take too many pictures of?
Documenting my obsessions
Is there anything you can’t stop yourself from taking pictures of?
I’m old enough to remember a time when taking pictures had to be a deliberate act. First, you had to own a camera. Second, you needed to remember the camera. And third, you had a limited amount of film, so each click had to matter.
Now, we all carry cameras in our pockets. I love to take pictures. But if a future anthropologist were to examine the pictures I’ve taken with my phone, they would need a theory to explain why I take so many pictures of reflections. I have hundreds upon hundreds of reflection pictures—everything from rivers and lakes to puddles and pools.
