In music, there are styles that tries to get rid of "conventions" or "rules" in order to achieve various philosophical goals. Incidentally, this music is often described as "demanding". Often it is appreciated by a small "elite" that themselves have education and background in the genre.

Does anything similar exist in photography? Photographers who "break all of the rules", perhaps non-pictorial, make pieces of art that may be appreciated by the elites (but not by the public)?

Well here's an odd one that i shot years ago, but just broke out because i want to explore some of what is going on in this shot in a series.  I don't know if it applies to what you are referring to but it's not exactly conventional.

Thank you. I was hoping that the dynamic range was fitting for the subject matter.

Much appreciated

fwiw

Quote
"The Art of Romare Bearden … All in all, it adds up to one of the most lucid, germinal applications to picture-making of the jazz aesthetic yet attempted -- a rich, ever-replenishing mix of invention, bricolage, and quotation, in which self-expression and collective memory echo and dance with each other like friends who've played together for a lifetime."

It has sort of a Merce Cunningham-John Cage feel to it.

Many years ago I worked for a film-maker who had a decidedly rule-breaking approach to his work:  he would just let his running camera swing from a strap in his hand.  His takes were as long as the camera wind would last; his films as long as the film in the camera would last (IIRC, he used both a Bolex H16 and a Bell and Howell Filmo.)  Needless to say, given his "aesthetic", the films were projected uncut.  I once suggested that he would save time and money if he just projected the film also unprocessed. And,  needless to say, we parted company soon after that.

It brought John Cage to my mind. As I look at it, I have 4'33" playing on my iPad. And MacBook. And iMac. Just slightly out of sync.

One who experiments, prints on metals, wood, circuit boards, hand coloring and oils.

Always shooting and pushing things.

Take a look and see if his crazy stuff is anywhere close.

And no, it is not me.

If it does, I don't care. Why do you ask?
