Originality

March 31, 2022

Originality sounds like a noble pursuit because all great thinkers appear to have been original. But is that true at all?

If more of us acknowledged that originality is a flawed and over-glorified concept, the more we would feel safe to create. Our job, our mission, is to improve the familiar.

Google NGRAM
This is a great tool that lets you discover culture evolutions by looking at the words used in books since 1500. Try to type in the search box the word Originality to see how it became important around during the romantic movement in the 19th century. Try typing the terms “Originality, Authenticity, Writer’s block, and Romantic” to see how they relate chronologically (make sure your selected time period is 1500-1999 so you get a wider look).

Andreas

I travel the globe photographing life’s important events, weddings, and editorial shoots. I care deeply for each couple's love story as a worthy and unique piece of art. My photography is intimate and fashion-forward, with a painterly old-world charm, and infused with meaning and a sense of purpose.

I serve discerning clients from over 20 countries, and also teach remarkable photographers all over the world, aiming to inspire a new generation of artists to build thriving brands and use their Art as a platform for positive change.

My work stems from an overwhelming desire to advocate for empathy, empowerment, and the spreading of kindness. I hope that by showing all the goodness that exists in the world, I might help make the world a bit better, ever so slightly, because I can imagine nothing more powerful than two humans in love!
