The Monday Muse Week 30: Cutlery
This week’s muse is inspired by the new photography magazine Ordinary.
Ordinary is the new fine-art photography magazine and its maiden issue has provided the basis for this week’s muse – cutlery.
For the first issue, twenty artists were sent a set of plastic cutlery and asked to ‘add something extra to the ordinary’. Check out the magazine’s website to see what the artists did and then go and add something extra to some of your ordinary cutlery – it doesn’t have to be plastic, any form of cutlery is acceptable.
The Monday Muse is an ongoing initiative. There are no deadlines and you don’t have to take the photographs in the week that the Muse is set. Once you’ve set up your album, you can add to it any time. A list of previous Muses can be found here. You don’t have to be a member of the London Region to participate - all-comers welcome!
Monday Muse Info
As the inspirational ideas we posted as part of the Bleeding London project proved to be so popular, we’re going to continue the theme with The Monday Muse. Every Monday, we’ll be posting an inspirational idea for the week, with links to tips and suggestions on how to achieve the best images. We’ll be featuring our favourites here on the blog and in our monthly eZine Capital Interest. And just to add a bit of competition, we’ll be running a points league. There is one point for posting an image and there will be occasional bonus points. At the end of the year, whoever has the most points will receive a gift voucher to spend in the RPS shop.
