Mobile Photography – There Is A Story Behind Every Person – Portrait of An Artist

A worldview or world-view is the fundamental cognitive orientation of an individual or society encompassing the whole of the individual’s or society’s knowledge and point of view.  A worldview can include natural philosophy; fundamental, existential, and normative postulates; or themes, values, emotions, and ethics. 

Worldviews are often taken to operate at a conscious level, directly accessible to articulation and discussion, as opposed to existing at a deeper, pre-conscious level, such as the idea of “ground” in Gestalt psychology and media analysis. However, core worldview beliefs are often deeply rooted, and so are only rarely reflected on by individuals, and are brought to the surface only in moments of crises of faith.  — Source:

There Is A Story Behind Every Person

The artist, looking at the world and himself, apprehends and interprets what is real, creating constructions and deconstructions of himself and those around him. 

Each artist works in staging their characters. He likes to disguise himself, to assume an unusual attitude, an unusual profile. Hiding, to better reveal the duality of self and other, a floating and elusive subjectivity. Sometimes I wonder if the artist would not hide behind a mask to better show the world the aches and pains we all suffer.

Increasingly, the exercise of portraiture and self-portrait has aroused growing interest, creative possibilities that multiply day by day.

In the following works are revealed works of consistency, passing through the subjective and imaginary. They tell a story that everyone can interpret in their own way, based on their own experience. This is one of the great abilities of art, without creating any imposition, just suggesting an idea, makes us all pause for a moment to rethink our whys and our whys

We are only able to understand and interpret things from our own perspective and point of view, which we form from our own life experiences. So how do we know what someone else’s perspective might be? What do we know about their feelings?  What is the Story behind your work ? These questions move us forward in our daily lives.
