Mundane and Momentous

I quite enjoyed this excerpt from a Nymphoto interview with photographer Ying Ang. Her thoughts aren’t exactly uncommon, but it’s nice to see them presented so succinctly and directly.

“Photography [is . . .] a tribute to personal histories and a way of justifying the mundane and the momentous. The pursuit of photography as a career serves as a vehicle for social change, a visual record and a commentary of the way we are. I am also easily seduced by ideals.”
