When Martin Parr advised photographers to photograph the mundane before it disappears, I think this is what he was getting at. Photograph everyday objects. Shoot the things that otherwise go unnoticed.

Because one day they’ll be gone and you’ll find yourself wondering what colour was the sign in the laundry. Was the basket red and the sign blue, or was it the other way around?

Or you might think I remember there was something extraordinary about that place, but I never could put my finger on why…

Photograph the ordinary and make it extraordinary. It’s like mindfulness for photographers – finding something to love about each and every little detail that makes up the day.
