Mobile Photography & Art Saturday Poetry – ‘The Body Remembers’ by Yusef Komunyakaa with @poetry_fish

This weeks Saturday Poetry, matched with mobile photography/art is entitled ‘The Body Remembers’ by Yusef Komunyakaa. ‘The Body Remembers’, explains Komunyakaa, ‘sprung out of my memory of swimming in a creek in Bogalusa, Louisiana, in the 1950s when the entire culture was still segregated—especially in any joyful display of the body. However, we boys often took risks and, coming back to that past stitched with youthful energy, perhaps our bravado was fuelled by a public dare. Such a moment of play is full of celebration, especially during the months of July and August. But also, there is a reality to our naïve recklessness—and there, in the danger of such moments, we learned to come together as brothers.’

Komunyakaa first received wide recognition following the 1984 publication of Copacetic, a collection of poems built from colloquial speech which demonstrated his incorporation of jazz influences.

Sixth New Assignment Announced ‘Recognition’ for our Forthcoming Book ‘Away with Words’

In January we announced a brand new Assignment section to TheAppWhisperer offering an opportunity for mobile photographers and artists to enter into a monthly assignment on a subject matter that we have individually crafted. This new section is another ground breaking topic within our community. Like so many of the sections within TheAppWhisperer, has not been done before, in this way.

Photographic images have reflected and shaped culture since the inception of the medium and this is non more so apparent than shown within mobile photography and art. The power of mobile art today is inevitably entangled with the diverse tolerances that cultures have in relation to photographs and the vast divergence within different cultures too. Over the past ten years of mobile photography and art we have all experienced great controversies in the world and still, they ensue. Mobile photography is inextricably linked to personal accountability and each member of our mobile community represents a force to relation to our continually changing cultural values, whether by challenging them or reflecting them; photography is co-creating them.

At the end of each month, we will gather the images that have been contributed and select one for an immersive critique. I will personally write this with over 1000 words. Each critique will identify the elements, contextual meaning of these elements, interpretation and conclusion. Each critique will then be published not only on TheAppWhisperer, the world’s most popular mobile photography & art website but also throughout our vast social media channels. At the end of the year, we will publish a book featuring all of these critiques. As you can appreciate each critique will take some time to create well, so we ask, if you would like to take part to donate £10 per image that you submit (there is no limit to the number of images you submit), we feel this is fair. To do this, just select the appropriate allowance at the bottom of our donation section at the end of this post.

We have just published our fourth chapter entitled ‘Beauty and Awe’ with Becky Menzies’ image. To read the previous published chapters, with Rita Colantonio, Valeria Cammeria and Peter Wilkin, please go here.

Today we are announcing our sixth Assignment with the topic entitled ‘Recognition’. Creating art, photography or otherwise, is an outlet to express our emotions. This sixth assignment can be interpreted in your art literally or metaphorically, or any other interpretations you may draw, all entries are welcome. This assignment window will close on 29 July 2019, when we will announce the new one. To take part please send your image(s) to my email address – joanne@theappwhisperer.com and/or to Instagram with this hashtag #tawrecognition. Please send £10 per image to enter this assignment via the donation table below.
