Mobile Photography & Art Flickr Showcase – 21 May 2017

Have you ever written or received a hand written love letter? I grew up writing and reading letters, they were an important part of life. The letters I received were mostly not from other English loves but from elsewhere around the world. Could it be the French, Spanish, Italian, Americans are more romantic? Or could it be that corresponding with people in other counties created greater infatuation? It’s far quicker and easier to breeze through an email but it never feels the same, as receiving a scented handwritten letter. Nostalgia about letter writing is nothing new. Whenever a cultural form starts to die, people start celebrating it, think vinyl records, polaroid photographs, 35 mm film. Scent is a crucially important sense in humans, darkroom smells are omnipresent with me. It’s not a fetish but what is it? What do we all hanker for? It’s love, Erich Fromm expressed Modern man thinks he loses something – time – when he does not do things quickly. Yet he does not know what to do with the time he gains, except kill it” and it’s true. Whilst ‘saving’ time, give what you gain to your loves, grow your love, develop it and share it. Art, writing, painting, photographing, making love, teaches us to be more than just towards ourselves as we endeavour to make the best of our circumstances. Keep forever in mind the real ingredients of fulfilment, do not lose sight of the value of everything that is to hand. Trust more in your ideas and feelings than objects. Above all, remember to love and to care. Enjoy the beauty of existence. Have courage, to keep loving, you’ll never regret loving and being loved.

We want a mate who feels like family and a lover who is exotic, surprising. We want to be youthful adventurers and middle-aged mothers. We want intimacy and autonomy, safety and stimulation, reassurance and novelty, coziness and thrills. But we can’t have it all”, says Ariel Levy; the New Yorker writer who had a life that balanced domesticity with intellectual and sexual adventure and then it fell apart, dramatically. This from her memoir ‘The Rules do not Apply’. I have been reading it this week.  Essentially, this book is about the desire to have it all and how that can literally be blown apart. One thing in particular struck me reading this book, Levy does not give herself any compassion, it’s left to the reader to fill that gap. This is a book that (in my opinion) you should order for all the women that you love. Each week, like many of us, I read, view and embrace all that I can around me. I surround myself in the very best of art and of life. Our Mobile Photography and Flickr Group is a good grounding base. Sometimes, when the days have not gone to plan, people have been unpredictable, I know that I can go back to our group and feel nurtured. Because each week your work reaches new heights. Not to say that your work is predictable because it is not, the growing unpredictability tightens the narrative and it is easy to see why the artists featured here have earned a place among the finest mobile photographers working today. We have our freedom and we use it very very well. Thank you!

You may have heard of Dr Megan Poe, she is a 42 year old psychiatrist and associate professor who teaches an undergraduate course on love, which she designed at New York University. It has achieved overwhelming success. The course is called ‘Love Actually’ and attempts to pack as much about the human experience of love in, as is possible. The course leans heavily on the work of Eric Fromm, the psychologist best known for his 1956 book, The Art of Loving, that I mentioned a few weeks ago, here. What I love about the syllabus of this class, is at its core, albeit a psychology class, its emphasis is on love, through art. As described in The Guardian ‘where the psychology inhabits the artwork on a kind of cellular level‘. They look at poets like Rainer Maria Rilke and they study Romeo and Juliet as a way to explore the intensity and emotional urges of adolescent love. What I would bring to this course, if I was exploring it, would be your mobile photography and art, because on a richly transcendent level, it is love, it has been created and produced with love, in those special and sacred moments, when you have made time, for yourselves, which in this analogy could be classed as self love and self love is excruciatingly important. You must love yourselves, for I love you all. I do hope you enjoy this wonderful showcase this week, thank you all for contributing.

"There were things that burned away at me, not only as a private individual, but also as a citizen of our century, our pixelated age. What does it mean to be lonely? How do we live, if we’re not intimately engaged with another human being? How do we connect with other people, particularly if we don’t find speaking easy? Is sex a cure for loneliness, and if it is, what happens if our body or sexuality is considered deviant or damaged, if we are ill or unblessed with beauty? And is technology helping with these things? Does it draw us closer together, or trap us behind screens"?  A quote from a book that I am currently reading by a truly wondrous writer, Olivia Laing. The book is entitled ‘The Lonely City: Adventures in the Art of Being Alone’. I urge you to read it. Laing wrote this book following the end of a romantic relationship and decided to leave Britain and head to New York. Essentially this book as is our Mobile Photography and Flickr Group Showcase this week, is about learning to befriend yourself. Laing goes on to say, "what matters is staying alert, staying open, because if we know anything from what has gone before us, it is that the time for feeling will not last". Please enjoy this multilayered showcase, the artists and their art, know no bounds. This is a showcase that is intrinsic to the very notion of being alive, right now.
