People tend to look down on clichés, but I’ve always believed clichés are clichés for a reason. Take for example the theme of flowers. I know flowers are done a lot–some may argue flowers in pictures has been overdone, but I don’t think I’ve ever encountered a picture of flowers I didn’t like.

Tell me you don’t like these photographs by Zhang Jingna for Phuong My‘s Spring Summer 2015 collection and the Overgrowth project by Parker Fitzgerald and Riley Messina. Both sets of photographs deal with flowers as their central focus, but they are so different in their treatment of colors, composition and overall tone. That’s why I don’t think anyone should ever look down on clichés. There are always an infinite amount of possibilities in every creative endeavor.

  • I agree with what you said- there is an infinite amount of possibilities when it comes to creativity. Great post

  • Seriously, who gets tired of flowers…or nature? Certainly the *way* they’re used in photographs can get “been there done that” ish, but there’s always a new way to use them…and as time passes, new generations of viewers to see old designs as new 🙂

    As the clichee goes, “what’s old is new again” 🙂
