Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder.


William Miller purchased an old, broken Polaroid camera from a garage sale, only to find all of the film inside was over exposed and coded with chemicals. But instead of pitching them, what he found was true, one-of-a-kind beauty. Each photo is beautifully constructed by chemical corruption, creating a true masterpiece.

When I stumbled upon these photos, I was instantly intrigued and greatly reminded to see the beauty in all things. Maybe it's the photographer in me, but I'm so passionate about appreciating the beauty in photographs. Art/photographs can be the base of hour long conversations, cherished memories, and the greatest of inspiration. What if Miller had considered the film garbage? We would be missing out on, in my opinion, some of the most uniquely constructed art I've ever seen. 

I love that each viewer sees something different with each photograph. I mostly see landscapes and ocean sides. The last photo looks to me as if two ships are about face each other in battle.

What do you see?

  5. Oh I love this. Regular old posed pictures are nice, but finding something so unique and beautiful is the hard, and worth it, thing. I see two castles across the river from each other in that last one :)
