Useful Photography is the generic name for the millions of diverse photos, which are used daily and with a purpose all of their own; practical photography that has a clear function and where the makers remain anonymous. It is precisely these photographs that can hold our interest for an astonishingly long time. It is these photos, when afforded a second glance, that can reveal beauty beneath their surface. As soon as the images are lifted out of their context, they produce new insights into what is considered useful photography.
