Normal Relativity {To be normal would be a waste of the potential that is screaming for revelation}

Bud Kibby's avatar Bud Kibby

In this body of work, I am combining analog and digital photographic techniques, taking portraits of "alternative" people, printing them on "alternative" media, and using "alternative" equipment in the form of large format photographic equipment and lense(s) from the era of the advent of photography and celebrating the alt. I am interested in what makes something or someone alternative and what basis we are using to measure normality. To aspire to be normal is an immense waste of creative human potential and is a sad state frequently causing the death of the dreamer. We are encouraged to assimilate and some become believers of this encouragement as law. I encourage anyone who is interested in alternative culture, tattoo and modification acceptance in the workplace, or anyone who agrees that there is no normal to follow my work: http://www.tiny-uproar.com/normal-relativity-to-be-normal-would-be-a-waste-of-the-potential-that-is-screaming-for-revelation/
