I like the way you present you photographs in that one ed... creative... good to see in an art show ( ironically enough, a lot of them aren't all that creative! )

What makes a photograph "creative"??
Posted By: ed on January 12th, 2006 at 12:46PM PST
that was great, what a great show. ill anser ed a photo cant realy be creative but the subject matter can be. say if some one was documenting there life with photos. they wouldent allways show picturs of them or there wife nude or the bad moments in life. but you ed do thats creative.

I'm saying the "way you present your photographs" is creative, not your photographs specifically. I think this applies to your paintings as well. You have a good color balance going on this first page (the one with the original link. I'm talking about the color of the clouds matching with the frames, etc.), with good symmetry (large grouping of pictures at the sides going to a small grouping in the corner). The washed out look of the colors and the dripping is neat too. The German page is another example... I love how you've hung your photos out to dry on a clothes line... there's symbolism going on everywhere, and I think that the extra work you do on the gallery itself helps you carry your message across. Presentation is an important part of any show, and you obviously realize this... I've been to a lot of shows where it's a white room with paintings or photos and that's it... that's a different approach, and there're reasons for that. But for what you're doing, I think it works.
Your newest show looked like it was a departure from this style, and that's why I said it was an important show a couple messages back.

I wasn't bummed or anything. But your comment can be read in both directions, positive and negative... I think I read it negative at first, because the next comment down was "Make that "your photographs." I read it as "a lot of them aren't all that creative + Your Photographs" but I can see that you were only correcting your spelling. I understand where you are coming from.

I love reading comments from you and everyone, be it positive or negative.

i love how this site is actually frequented by ed. it's really great to have some correspondence with the actual people who run toy machine, they actually care about their loyal followers. just makes me feel way way more inclined to support toy machine in the future.
toy is pushing all the right elements of skateboarding anyway: style over substance.
&ed's artwork is really interesting. i'm no artfag, but i know what i like!
