The photography site for sore eyes. With extra writing because I'm also a writer.
In the past week I have received several unexpected emails, accompanied by images. And in the interests of serious photographic discussion (Are you watching, BJP?), I include them below.Found photography is quite a big thing these days. Books and exhibitions have been produced of these images that someone has, er, found. Simple as that. We don’t know the history of them, yet they are still appealing. Looking at these found images appeals to our sense of discovery – who doesn’t dream of finding treasure? There is also the notion of looking back into history and an element of being nosey. But these images dropping into my email inbox are something different. Part phishing-scam, part titillation, they are the bastard child of digital photography and the internet. Like Found photography, the history of these images are unknown. Is the lady in this image the same person actually writing the email? Highly unlikely – we will never know the real personality in these digital photographs. I’ve Christened these images Received Photography. Hence forth, junk phishing mail with photo attachments of sexy women will be referred to in this way.
The brunette one.
I obviously replied to Yulia straightaway, telling her how thrilled I was to hear from here. This is what she said:
I knew you would write to me. I had a strange feeling. =)
I do not drink or smoke. I have never been married and I have no children.
But I believe that I can find a serious and sincere man with whom I could build a serious relationship. I have a calm nature, I do not like to be nervous. Nerves are not restored.:) I hope that we can learn a lot of each other and our communication will be enjoyable for both of us. I hope the sincerity of your intentions towards me.
I’m looking for a serious relationship, so I hope for reciprocity and understanding. I have many questions for you, because I want to know a lot of you. I’m curious to know a lot about your life, work and play. I would like to hear your voice.
But last week, my phone was stolen. But you can leave me your phone number if you want. As soon as I have the opportunity, I’ll call you. ok? Tell me. What do you like in women?
The blonde one.
Masha sent me three photos and this is what she has to say for herself:
Somewhere inside my soul i think that i’m perfect, or almost perfect;-)
