TheAppWhisperer – Portrait of An Artist – ‘Dia de los Muertos’ – Challenge Results

Share

I am so delighted to publish our second Portrait of an Artist challenge results. The theme of this challenge was for you to recreate through a portrait or self portrait, your interpretation of the Mexican tradition of Día de los Muertos. We had some fabulous entries and our editor for this column, the wonderful Ile Mont, has curated and critiqued a number of them. Huge thanks to Ile and to all our artists too! (Foreword by Joanne Carter).

“To be willing and open to experience other cultures that are not ours is an act of growth, respect and learning. I am very happy and grateful to those who decided to free for a moment from any cultural barriers and put their heart and dedication to create in a very inspired way something unfamiliar and foreign.

Thank you very much for all of your submissions to our Portrait Of An Artist “Día De Los Muertos” Autumn Challenge!

Special congratulations to Lorenka Campos, Liliana Schwitter, Armineh Hovanesian, Susan Rennie, Giulia Baita and Juta Jazz’.

‘Keep The Focus’ – Meditation Techniques for Street Photographers – Free eBook

Share

Many of us either try or do use meditation in our daily routines to aid our well being. Bringing brain and body together, in harmony, can help us deal with many things that we face each day. I need to practice it more, I know that many in our mobile photography community are huge advocates of it, not least our dear friend Carolyn Hall Young, who I know has practised it since she was 16 years old and it has helped her cope with so much. So, with that in mind, I was very interested to learn of this new free eBook ‘Keep the Focus’, which is a practical guide to help improve your street photography with three meditation techniques.

This project was initiated by German Street Photographer Thomas Ludwig and he has been practising meditation since 1999 and has been studying Buddhism since 2010 at the Tibetan Centre in Hamburg, Germany under patronage of HH the Dalai Lama. An array of outstanding street photographers have contributed to this project and include Mike Boening, Valerie Jardin, Eric Kim, Marco Larousse, Thomas Leuthard, Rinzi Roco Ruiz, Spyros Papaspyropoulos and Forrest Walker.

This free ebook is available in English and German.
