Humor in Photography

There’s something infinitely refreshing about a photographer who applies humor to his art. I recently started my own humorous series inspired by the photography of Aaron Ruell. Of course, I knew I’d never come close to the precise and detail oriented photography of Mr. Ruell, but I didn’t intend to anyways.

Injecting humor into photographs of subjects not normally associated with humor is a brave and inspiring thing. From having done it, I can tell you there is a very fine line between funny and crass or overdone.

I recently stumbled upon the photoblog of Steve Korn. His latest shot of bassist Clipper Anderson is the perfect example of that. It’s simple, speaks volumes and humorous! Well done, Steve!

Check out my Quirky Photography Project and let me know what you think.

Also, if you know of any artists that do the humor thing well, let me know.
