Every week an artist whose single image was published by Der Greif is given a platform in which to blog about contemporary photography.

Functional Images

Jun 26, 2016 - Daniel Everett

Recently, while sorting through my external hard drives, I started gathering all of the images I’ve made over the years documenting my video game collections. These images were taken with the intent of cataloging, selling, or showing off to other collectors in online forums, but in retrospect, clearly bear a striking resemblance to my art. It wasn’t until bringing them all together that I realized how much these images have come to inform the way I make art and how I think visually.
