It’s Got A Good Beat And You Can Dance To It – Alec Soth

When talking about the medium of photography, I often like to speak by analogy. Usually I prefer fishing or poetry analogies, but when discussing the charms of the singular photograph, I like to talk about pop music. Like a photograph, a pop song is a humble enterprise. Generally only a few minutes long, pop songs combine simple lyrics and melody in a repetitive verse/chorus structure. As with photography, the creation of a pop tune is easy enough for any amateur.
