Mobile Photography – Portrait of an Artist – Twenty Eighth Video Showcase

Share

We are delighted to present our 28th Portrait of an Artist Video Showcase. Ile Mont our highly talented Editor for our Portrait of an Artist Column has curated the another astonishing showcase. Each image is related to the previous and the ensuing, the personal associations that underpin their selection remain mysterious. Entirely intentional, this is a bold and atypical showcase, wholly satisfying, signalling a shift away from poetic documentary and towards conceptualism. Enjoy! (Foreword by Joanne Carter)

If you are not a member of our Facebook group we highly recommend that you join us! This is our space for sharing newsworthy information and conducting discussions (what, when, where, why and how) regarding mobile portraiture and portraiture in general.

Please join our Facebook group for information sharing/discussions (link here)

Why Women Have Better Sex Under Socialism‘ what perfect timing, if you pardon the pun. Kristen R Ghodsee has published a thoroughly researched exploration proclaiming that capitalism is bad for women.  She argues, adopting some ideas from socialism  ‘women will have better lives’ and of course, this includes sex. Ghodsee, an acclaimed ethnographer and professor of Russian and East European Studies, spent years researching what happened to women in countries that transitioned from state socialism to capitalism. In this book, she analysed many facets of a woman’s life – work, parenting, sex and relationships, community and authority. One chapter, entitled “Women: Like Men, But Cheaper,” she discusses women in the workplace, deliberating all things from wage gaps to harassment and discrimination. In “What To Expect When You’re Expecting Exploitation,” she addresses motherhood and how “having it all” is impossible under capitalism. With regards ‘better’ sex, naturally it is hard to substantiate, many cultural factors come into play but what’s interesting is her theory that less inequity decommodifies sex, undermining the odious theory of ‘sexual economics’ as she describes, whereby, women raise the ‘price’ of sex by denying it. She explains “in societies with high levels of gender equality, with strong protections for reproductive freedom, and with large social safety nets, women almost never have to worry about the price their sex will fetch on an open market.” As we are increasingly told this is ‘the year of women’ which I find patronising and as we do rise up and speak out against abusive relationships and gain increased support to leave, perhaps this is enabling sexual freedom? In these trying times, she ends the book with “we can share our attentions without quantifying their value, giving and receiving rather than selling and buying.” It struck me, as I read this book, how much the latter sentence I shared co-relates with our mobile photography and art community. How much we give to each other, how much we share, how much we embrace one another and how much we realign our own art society ensuring that each one of us feels equal to the other. This much we do know and it’s clear to see in this weeks Flickr Group Mobile Photography and Art Showcase, enjoy!

Mobile photography has capsulated self portraiture, or selfies as they are known. Offering the ultimate notion of control, you’re not trusting someone else to capture you, you’re deciding how to frame yourself, you’re not relying on someone else to make you look good. The paradox at the heart of selfies is that they masquerade as a candid shot but in reality they are posed and often heavily edited. But at least for the younger audience, looking good, is not good enough, you need to look good in extreme scenarios. There’s a blurring between the lines of reality and fantasy, until they collapse into one another. Such was the case this week, as I wandered around town with my family. I noticed a movement at the very top of a skyscraper, then another movement, until I realised there were in fact two people on the roof.  I alerted security and my husband captured a shot of them with his telephoto lens, later seized as evidence. Security hurried to the scene and before long, they returned with two young boys, no older than 13-14 years old. They’d been trying to capture the consummate selfie and almost paid the ultimate price. Its become so commonplace in this particular area to capture virtuosic selfies, that there’s a £10k instant fine for anyone spotted on the top of a building, if they’re 18 or over. These two boys, received no such fine but they were escorted from the area and driven home to their relieved (if they’d known) parents. Social media drives this of course, the more likes they receive, the more lucrative deals they can make and the more their fans cheer them on. Ultimately the notion of control with a selfie is disingenuous, once it’s posted online, it’s out there for public delectation, whether you live to see it or not. Fortunately, the images in this weeks showcase allowed all of our photographers to live, and each one blazes with passion for being. Enjoy!

Life is an enactment, art the outward manifestation of the scenes performed on an inner stage and no greater is this portrayal witnessed than in this weeks Mobile Photography and Art Showcase. Consciously desexed, I am somewhat a phenomenolgist as I curate each week. Infilitrating the discrepancies between reasoning and imagination, demanding the subjectivity of the objectiveness of each work of art, I invite all viewers to experience the anteriority of mobile art; the power, the strength and the hauntingly honesty of this new movement of art. As Emily Dickinson, whom I have been reading this week, knew, the truth that underlies all art is an apocalyptic yearning for ecstasy, the aura of euphoria is here. Enjoy!

One late night this week, on the tube homeward bound, I was accosted by a couple. One sat purposefully too close to me, physical and personal boundaries abandoned, and the other, opposite, knocking knees. The woman, her head leaning on my shoulder, was stonned I would say and the man somewhat addled, suffering a huge … Read moreMobile Photography & Art – Flickr Group Showcase – 21 October 2018

A husband hits his wife to silence her. A date rapist or acquaintance rapist refuses to let the “no” of his victim mean what it should, that she alone has jurisdiction over her body. Rape culture asserts that women’s testimony is worthless, untrustworthy. Anti-abortion activists also seek to silence the self-determination of women. A murderer silences forever. These are assertions that the victim has no rights, no value – is not an equal“, an extract from Rebecca Solnit’s book ‘The Mother of All Questions’ and it’s highly appropriate today. No, I will not be silenced. No, I will not allow my FB page to go black. Right now, we are strong, women are rightfully gaining their power. Silence is what has allowed predators to rampage through the decades unchecked and women have died for it. So, I have published this week’s spectacular Flickr Group Showcase of Mobile Art and Photography, it tells so many stories and we still have so far to go. Enjoy!
