Tickle Your Fancy – #5 – NSFW

Share

Welcome back to our fifth post in our new section Tickle Your Fancy’. We launched this five weeks ago and it’s already becoming very popular. ‘Tickle Your Fancy’ includes a round-up of five links to articles from around the internet that have specifically interested us during the course of the week. Ones that we feel are relevant to your interest in photography and art.

Just to explain the title for this section ‘Tickle Your Fancy’ is an English idiom and essentially means that something appeals to you and perhaps stimulates your imagination in an enthusiastic way, we felt it would make a great title for this new section of the site.

Take a look at our selections for this weekends reading session, hope you enjoy these…

One reply on “Tickle Your Fancy – #5 – NSFW”

Joanne,

Great series. This selection is the most powerful so far. I photographed those heading into conflict as part of my duties at an airbase. Some came back in caskets. All came back changed.

The four year old work probably opens up so much more, can not wait to see other parents doing this and then have a huge show online of the work. So inspiring. No self conscious inhibitions with the 4 yr old. We should be so open when we create as adults.

Be well

Laurence
