Unphotographable — Word Accounts of the Photographs That Got Away
unphotographable1-feature.jpg
   

Sure, a picture is worth a thousand words. But what happens if you miss the picture?

You know the ones we mean — those once-in-a-lifetime photos that got away. Because you left your camera at home. Or, if you’re like us, you left the darn thing on manual and got a nice solid black jpeg for your troubles.

When Michael David Murphy missed the perfect photo opp while in Ethiopia, he turned the moment into a vivid account of the photograph that wasn’t. Unphotographable was born.

The site catalogues “exceptional mistakes” — photographs that didn’t happen but whose stories he must tell anyway.

They’re the most real, perfect photographs you’ll never see.
