See, if you expect this from the photographs, you will be disappointed. No one's asserting that they're deep, profound, meaningful, besides you. I think the whole point of art is that you aren't supposed to bring your expectations to it, you're supposed to take it for what it is.

And sometimes, it's not much more than a picture of a stained tray.

Ever heard of wabi sabi?
