Boring Photography?

Interesting article over on Conscientious Blog regarding German photographer Petra Wittmar's work. Jorg Colberg describs the work as boring and continues to try and justify his statement with What is boring photograhy ? A mistake in my opinion as photography is far too subjective. You either like an image or you don't.

Regarding the work in question, I think BORING is the wrong term and I doubt he would say the same as other deadpan aesthetics makers and that whole Düsseldorf lot..
Trying to answer the question What is boring Photography? is in itself boring.
Regarding the work. It's thought provoking and interesting. Maybe a little mundane, but certainly not boring.
