‘Banal’ photography is a style of photography that I was led to through my research. Perhaps it isn’t recognised as an official style, but I discovered there is a large following for the style on social media platform, Instagram. I chose banal for my zine as it resonated with me, being the style of photography I was already using often. I have always found that Weston is a beautiful place if you know where to look and if you know how to look. This inspired me to go out on a journey finding the beautiful ordinary in my dull, grimy hometown of Weston-super-Mare. Banal focuses on applying simple techniques, predominantly the rule of thirds, line and shape to make the boring and ordinary seem aesthetic and interesting to the eye of the viewer. #banalography
