“Everything evolves, there are no eternal realities: just as there are no absolute truths.”

(Nietzsche, 1878)

As in a Rorschach test, in choosing the images for this presentation, I had the distinct impression of showing more than the photographs I so much admire, much of my essence and the content that inhabits me.

In irrational art there is a valuation in relation to the unconscious that is portrayed through the dream, where the ideas that arise to the mind do not have an order or organisation, being visible in the surrealist works the variety of present elements and a certain confusion that bind the observer to the photograph.

Man-Ray makes the distinction in his photographic work between two contradictory worlds, between the real and the inexplicable. He affirmed that the resolution of the future would be found through two states, reality and dream”

“I’m here working on a couple of art commissions and leading a private workshop and I brought the new iPad Pro along to better understand how it can integrate into the mobile photographer workflow. How does it work to ingest, backup, edit, and share images?

The art installation I’m working on is extremely large format (up to 50 ft. wide), so I’m shooting most of this project with the Hasselblad H6D-100c (a 100-megapixel beast). Needless to say, it’s been a great camera to test the speed of this new iPad Pro”.

Mobile Photography & Art – Flickr Group Showcase – 4 October 2018

Share

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!
