BYOP: Bring Your Own Props

Everybody takes snapshots. Whether you have a Pixel2 smartphone or a Phase One medium format camera, you're taking snapshots. And just the same, everyone loves art. Whether it's gallery art from a world renowned painter or a street art from graffiti artist, art makes you stop and take it in.
