Predicament of Conceptual Photography

ATTN: This is article is from my 2008 archive 

When I was new to concept photography, the main problem I faced was: discouragement.  I would try to take on a subject/theme and try to outline what I would need to make it into a great photograph. But I would get discouraged easily and then take my mind elsewhere.

The whole process of creating an image in your mind, I found was easy. But, the fact that I would need to gather all those materials- some out of my reach (and limit) made it very discouraging. Because It meant that I am just thinking about something that I will perhaps never be able to accomplish.

That being said, it must be very hard for them to get that perfect object (ex. lamp) for their photo (and it has to be the perfect shade of colour that they imagined). These small details work to become stronger details in conceptual art. As you can see, I have great respect for Wes Anderson (lol).
