Mobile Photography & Art Flickr Showcase – 21 May 2017

Share

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.

Photographs turn the present into past, make contingency into destiny. Whatever their degree of “realism,” all photographs embody a “romantic” relation to reality“, wrote Susan Sontag in the preface to Peter Hujar’s incredible (and now out of print) book ‘Portraits in Life and Death‘. She went on to write, “Photographs instigate, confirm, seal legends. Seen through photographs, people become icons of themselves. Photography converts the world itself into a department store or museum-without-walls in which every subject is depreciated into an article of consumption, promoted into an item for esthetic appreciation. Photography also converts the whole world into a cemetery. Photographers, connoisseurs of beauty, are also — wittingly or unwittingly — the recording-angels of death. The photograph-as-photograph shows death. More than that, it shows the sex-appeal of death“. Of course, this much is true. Having lost far to many close friends, the photographs, recordings that I have continue to keep those alive, to me, they help to keep me close, to appreciate the exisitance of love, lost. With mobile photography, it is possible to capture so much and so often, lives are sustained, photography unites in life as in death.

Mobile Photography & Art Flickr Group Showcase 19 February 2017

Share

Wow! What a week for mobile photography and art imagery! You’ve all kept me very busy this morning/afternoon, selecting your images and placing them, carefully into this showcase. So much so, that my mind has almost gone blank with what to say. Usually, on a Sunday, after I have worked on our showcase, I assimilate some words and thoughts, things I have been thinking over during the week, perhaps. Of course, this week took in Valentines Day, which to many of us means love. So, of course, that got me thinking, of the Valentines week that I spent with my love and also, I thought of, perhaps in view of many of the images and messages I received, from others, that perhaps some have not had a love to share it with this year. That’s happened to me of course, we have all felt that at various times in our lives, perhaps when a person we shared a love history with has not come true or just when we have enjoyed our own company. Some say, you don’t find love, love finds you. I have to confess that many of my loves, have found me, in fact most of the time I wasn’t even aware that love was before me, but others noticed and pointed it out. What I do know is that however we do find love, or it finds us, enduring love, is something we have to make, to work on. Humans are imperfect and sustaining love, sometimes in difficult circumstances is challenging, but very worthwhile.

Well, it seems I did find something to say afterall. Thank you everyone for sharing your truly stunning images with us this week. This is definitely a very beautiful showcase.

Experiences in art and life, fuelled with intense sensuality, releases explosive beauty which returns us to the pleasure of physical encounters, astonishingly connecting. Rooted in the moment, shaping our own emotional and artistic lives. Mon amour pour toi est éternel. The rhythm of art and life is one that we all share.

"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.
