This assignment is rather impossible for me. I've never actually looked at another photographer'sphotograph and thought, I wish I had taken that. Never. Not ever. Aside from me generally not being envious of people on the regular, the reasoning behind this is that I know I could not take those pictures. I cannot take a photo taken by Mapplethorpe because I am not Mapplethorpe. I do not have his eye, his mind. If I were Mapplethorpe, Mapplethorpe would probably be known asthe most controversial arborphilliac in art history. I guess then, it's not that I don't wish I'd taken other people's photographs, it's that I do not think that's possible. That said, this assignment is going to be of photographs I have been inspired by.
