"WARNING - VERY PRETENTIOUS!"
Will Cooper, based in London is creator of fine "Photatoes".
"I use cameras to take photos. But not always very serious photos so it's better to call them 'photatoes'. I sometimes use a medium format traditional film camera.
This is worth mentioning for some reason. I make photatoes that reflect pop culture, surreal moments, the daft and sometimes really deeeeep art
stuff with bizarre references. I like the overlap of commercial and personal work and how context can completely transform a photograph.
Just put it in a gallery and make it art. I start the creative process not by thinking 'how can I make a work of art'. Rather, I'll think of or come across something that just needs to be photographed.
It could be a little social moment I want to play with or a bigger idea.
Maybe it’s been there for years just waiting to be turned into a photato.
You don't have to look at my work with a deep and serious gallery-visit face whispering to the person beside you because saying it too loudly might risk someone overhearing and thinking you're a philistine.
You're allowed to laugh ;) “Please note that I didn’t want to make a work of art out of it.” Marcel Duchamp"
