if it coaxes him back, that's enough reason right there. but there are more reasons than that.

Thanks, Paul. Love your edit. Of course, you've invited a case of malicious compliance (+10^100000000000000...)

(This thread keeps attracting Pauls. That's a good sign...)

Nice to keep this alive. (But what is wrong with this page? It is about 5 miles wide. Well, a long way to his place from here I guess).

Yep, still miss Paul.

I just pulled up some Paolo Pellegrin images.... Amazing stuff! Inspirational and humbling at the same time.

It's a great quote and one which i'm constantly thinking about and paraphrasing. And, yea, i learnt it from Paul as well as being introduced to the work of Pellegrin (amongst others) by him.

"I’m more interested in a photography that is “unfinished”—a photography that is suggestive and can trigger a conversation or dialogue.
There are pictures that are closed, finished, to which there is no way in."
-Paolo Pellegrin

This challenge needs to happen.


Do you mind if I borrow that quote? It's perfect.

That quote is phenomenal. Thanks. Yes, I will remember it and would love to shoot for this challenge.

Same here. And two Pauls are better than one.

I miss him and I would love to have this challenge, looking at his stuff and reading his comments was always an inspirational experience for me, also if we did have this challenge maybe he might come back and inspire us some more, that would be awesome.

Well, we would have to move the flag poles beyond Ubique's style, a movement inspired by Ubique. Definitely would be better as a side challenge rather than a single challenge, so you could develop a body of art. Damn those zeros!

Ray, I'm all for a challenge in the style of Ubique and for expression of appreciation for Paul, but feel uneasy about creating sacred cows, no matter how much I admire them. I'm just moving the flags out a bit while there is an audience to allow others to look in a place they would never think of looking or would feel uncomfortable doing so. Personalities aside, her earlier work still has merit and was highly praised. All the same, apologies to those who regard this as hijacking, my post was aimed fyi (plural) not discussion.


Fair enough... but creation of sacred cows resides exclusively with the masses, and should they opt to do so then it will happen.

I was simply curious as to why you mentioned this in a thread with a specific challenge suggestion as opposed to suggesting a separate topic. There is no disputing that she does indeed have talent, but that was not the topic of discussion in this instance.

I do appreciate your intent... I was simply curious as to the timeliness of and choice of location for your topic.
