Photo Opportunities

Series of photographic works entitled “Photo Opportunities”, from hundreds of snapshots of tourist locations found on the Internet.
By Madeline Yale.

In the essay, she also talks about how socially conditioned we are to take pictures we have seen before – images popularized through film, television, postcards, and the Internet.
In my opinion at the first glance, it greatly resemble Claude Monet’s impressionist painting. It seems to also reflect people’s impression of these tourist attraction even before they stood in front of them. Interesting project on accumulative data collection through photography.
