Mobile Photography & Art – Flickr/Instagram Group Showcase – 8 December 2019

The life of an artist encompasses many avenues, one perhaps that I am frequently reminded of is the need for solitude, to create. French philosopher, Jean-Paul Sartre said ‘hell is other people‘. Sometimes I agree, sometimes I disagree with this sentiment, like many, it depends on the company. Orson Welles said ‘we’re born alone, we live alone, we die alone’,  I disagree, I was fully present when my three children were born, I’ve never lived alone and nor would wish to and I’d be surprised if I die alone. I have experienced a death of a loved one, who died alone but many of the deaths I have experienced, have had company. There’s a difference between the feeling of solitude and the feeling of loneliness. The former is a luxury, one where we enjoy our own company, where we can create with all abandon. Loneliness can be an exhaustion. Professor John Cacioppo has been studying the effects and causes of loneliness for 21 years. He is the director of the University of Chicago’s Center for Cognitive and Social Neuroscience. His book Loneliness: Human Nature and the Need for Social Connection examines the pathology and public health implications of the subject. In this very interesting book in answer to the following question he raised, “How many confidants do you have?”, he discovered “25% of Americans said they had no one at all”. This is a sad figure, but is one confidant enough to change brain chemistry if it is a quality connection? Professor Cacioppo explains Enough is always a hard term, but certainly one is hugely better than zero. Two is probably better than one. The true answer to this question is that it depends on context. If, to take an extreme example, you are in a state of war, then one probably isn’t enough – you need a small army of people around you”. In the UK, in 2018, the first Minister of Loneliness, Tracey Crouch was appointed, we have an epidemic due not less to the breakdown of communities and connections.  Cacioppo also disclosed that loneliness is contagious and leads to early death. It’s so important to de-stigmatise loneliness and we would love to see a mobile photography project devoted to it. At this time of year, with the holidays upon us, many people feel lonelier than ever. If you would like to create a project of loneliness, we will feature them, join us to help prevent social isolation. Please send a series of 12-15 images to this email address – joannetheappwhisperer@protonmail.com and please include narration.

I hope you all love this weeks mobile photography and art showcases much as I do. Thank you to all the talented artists for submitting your works to our showcase this week.

Mobile Photography Intimate Interview with Mary Lorincz from Walnut Creek, California, United States

Our eighty ninth interview in this series of intimate interviews is with talented photographer and artist Mary Lorincz from Walnut Creek, California, United States. You may know Lorincz from her popular Instagram account @ms.divination. For Lorincz taking the photograph is only half the work. I imagine that she spends the same, if not more time on her post processing. Within her portraiture she loves deep and extensive areas of sepia and or black and in some cases the background is minimised or eliminated entirely to give greater emphasis to the sitter’s face. Some of the faces are also masked though as if concealment offers a new perspective to humanity, perhaps humanity is what we see. Enjoy!
