From the Center for Fine Art Photography website:
It is through the ordinary that we are able to recognize the extraordinary or strange. Break down the conventions of beauty and look beyond the traditional to the unusual. Strange Beauty is found in the unfamiliar, evoking wonder and awe. Beauty is found in the unexpected.
