Many thousands of people now own a digital camera. Many thousands more sell their personal items over the internet everyday. Suddenly everyone is a photographer and all homes are studios. The second issue of Useful Photography is a collection of photos that have been taken from www.ebay.com

The pictures in Useful Photography #002 show the surprising creativity of the amateur photographer. The result is, for example, a pair of blue slippers against a leopard print background, or a photo of a fan that also shows the feet of the photographer. A speaker set, photographed from the front and back, shines with pride on a green billiard cloth.

Useful Photography is the result of a shared fascination of photographers Hans Aarsman, Julian Germain, Hans van der Meer, art director Erik Kessels and artist Claudi de Cleen who decided to make a magazine from their joint collections. Useful Photography #001, published last year, showed photos taken from sales catalogues, text books, introduction manuals, packaging etc. As in the first issue, Useful Photography #002 tries to find out what happens when functional, anonymous photos with which we are confronted daily, are taken out of their context.

You can order Useful Photography # 002 exclusively at: pages.ebay.nl/prom o/artimo.html or visit: www.ebay.nl. After March 3rd, the magazine will also be available in book shops for 20,- .

On pages.ebay.nl/prom o/artimo.html its also possible to bid on a special edition of Useful Photography # 002; a collection of prints combined with a unique, bound single copy, signed by the makers of Useful Photography: Hans Aarsman, Claudie de Cleen, Julian Germain, Erik Kessels and Hans van der Meer.
