I want to make more than pretty pictures, I want to make pictures that of a social context, a deeper underlying message. Beauty is all fine and good and a worthy thing, but in my work I want to try to do more than that. I do not want people to simply say "That is beautiful" I want them to think in a larger human context way. Photography can be so so so much more than just a conveyor of beauty.
One thing I really like about 5x7 negs is that they have the same longer horizontal dimension of 35mm. I think I will be able to use that longer horizontal (or vertical) in a positive compositional way.
