These Jarrod Reno Photographs Find Beauty in Imperfection

There's something incredibly striking about the photos of Jarrod Reno. They capture a certain simplicity that I am often nostalgic for in this digitally enhanced age, where natural photos like these ones are so few and far between. These scanned pictures with burned edges and imperfections are aesthetically appealing to me as someone who appreciates all things vintage and retro.

The raw nature of the settings and editing translate into natural, real emotions from the subjects distantly depicted in the greater context of the photograph. This series of photos truly gives truth to the adage "less is more" and is so beautiful in its simplicity.

Implications - The face of art and photography has changed dramatically with the rapid rise of technology and photo editing. While consumers appreciate the various art forms that have emerged as a result of technology, many are nostalgic for a simpler time when photographs were beautiful in and of themselves.
