Mobile Photography – TrueView Interview – ‘The Pregnant Moment’ with Catherine Schell Caddigan from the United Sates

Share

Our TrueView Interview section is an area where we ask one singular question, to mobile photographers and artists and it is captured to video. This time, I have asked mobile artists to consider their work within a story telling/narrative framework. My thoughts behind this, include an 18th century thesis, ‘Laocoon: An Essay on the Limits of Painting and Poetry‘, Gotthold Lessing argued that although painting could not communicate narrative in the sense of telling a story, it could imply drama by aspiring to capture the “pregnant moment”. In photography, this idea thrives as the “decisive moment” first introduced by Henri Cartier-Bresson and his followers. Therefore, my question to Catherine Caddigan from the United States [with the above in mind], is “how you build your image to express or allude to some sort of story. Do you plot, or not? How do you define it?

Many artists are working on their videos right now and each video is as unique and individual as each artist. We are fully conscious and respectful that you are all capturing a part of yourself and sharing it with us and we love it. Thank you.

Thank you for being a reader and viewer of our wonderful site. If you would like to view our previous TrueView Interviews, please go here.

Recently the Mobile Art Facebook Group Appstracts hosted on Facebook and run by one of our very own Columnists Roger Guetta, hosted a very touching mobile art challenge. The Challenge was for all the artists within this group to show their love for me by creating a unique image. The results are true testament to the tenderness and ability of our community of mobile artists and photographers and also the love story that we all share. The meticulous detail and thought that each and every mobile artist has put into this challenge sweeps me away. Your love beseeches me to revere your mobile art that awakens, sustains and nourishes all of us.

Guetta has created a mesmerising and very moving video of all the images and I have published this below. I viewed this many times yesterday and cried, a lot. So, much so that I was unable to create this post then. You have all touched my heart in a way that is so powerful. I am overcome by huge waves of happiness.
