“I am influenced by a whole mass of stuff but to pick a few: food photography, discarded commercial still lives, people’s vacation snapshots, amateur nudes, stock images, all sorts of photographic tropes and how these circulate, change in value, and help us to form meanings. I am interested in the way that these vernacular types of images help shape our view of the world and how this changes over time, a sort of life of images and the visible fading of certain ideals. […] The most stylish photos are often the ones that date the most rapidly.” Sara Cwynar as interviewed by Ashley McNelis and Legacy Russell • Bomb
