Something from Nothing – Marion Faria turns her barn into art!

Our latest submission for Something from Nothing comes from Marion Faria who tells us:

I have been reading and following oopoomoo and enjoying the “something from nothing” project. It inspired me to take images the other day in my barn when I was out working on the stalls. I found myself thinking about finding subjects to photograph in my vicinity.  I started looking at brooms, shovels, rakes, buckets and then started to see things…attached are a few images inspired by the something for nothing project.

    Very cool photos. I just love the rake and broom abstract, it’s my favourite!

    Great work Marion! I love following all the wonderful submissions to Something From Nothing. I watched a great documentary on Netflix the other day on New York photographer Bill Cunningham. He said something at the end of the film that resonated with me and ties in nicely with the Something From Nothing project and your submission. He said, “He who seeks beauty will find it”. Now photographs don’t have to be beautiful but the bigger point Bill was making is that there are wonderful incredible fascinating things to see, enjoy and photograph all around us. We just need to appreciate the environment we find ourselves in and really see.

    All images take my fancy, but the rake and broom very much so.
