This chapter introduces the concept and motivation of disordered photonics. Starting from the definitions of order, disorder, and randomness, we describe the importance of exploring the intermediate areas of disorder between order and randomness in physics. With a brief summary of the role of order and randomness in photonics, we introduce a top-down implementation of anomalous photonic disorder as a toolkit for the independent control of optical quantities.
