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.

This week, I’d like to talk with you about courage and it’s scary, being creative is a path for the brave. If you lose courage, you lose creativity. Each one of you has hidden treasures within you, as do I and we need to bring them to light and it takes a lot of faith and hard work, not least devotion. It’s important to say ‘no’ at times, I suppose, not that I’m one for that, it’s easy to say ‘no’, you’re off the hook but if you say ‘yes’ then what happens? It’s showtime! There are times, when you might need to lay low, as I have this week, many will notice my work output has slowed, I’ve been very unwell but that’s ok and do you know, why I know it’s ok? Because I have fierce trust in myself, I know I am a success with what I do, I believe in myself, I have had to and I know that I have so much more to do and so much further to go. The one thing you must never do, as a creative, is turn around and walk out. You show up, you do what you can in the time you’ve been allotted and you do it to the best of your ability and that’s what I’ve done today, with this weeks magical mobile photography and art showcase, I have tried my best to put this together, for all of us, although I am still unwell. You invited me to this party and I’m here to stay. Enjoy!

It hasn’t happened many times to me, but the strength of desire was too strong to ignore, irresistible actually. I had to return to the beginning of The Parisan and start all over again and this time, when I reached the end, the feeling to begin again and was even stronger than the first time. This is a masterful debut novel by Isabella Hammad, it’s historical fiction. A young man, a Palestinian is sent by his father to study medicine in France at the beginning of the First World War. He spends several years in France, liberating and transformative years before returning to Palestine. Along the way, he falls in love, perhaps it could be said, more than once, haven’t we all? The prose is exquisite and Hammad’s ability to paint a scene is as exquisite as the artists in this weeks mobile photography and art showcase, literally have. Their work is as complex as this novel, closely observed, elegantly created, assured and captivating. Enjoy!

Sometimes, when reading a book, visually I am often sped far away to artwork that has touched me . Such is the case with an unpredictable tale of passion and pianos set in 1880’s France and Russia that I am currently reading. Love is Blind is the 15th novel by one of my favourite authors, … Read more Mobile Photography & Art – Flickr Group Showcase – 13 January 2019

There’s much humour to be had at my nightstand, not least in the morning when my husband duels with balancing fresh coffee on the piles of books and there’s a particular book, which I feel should be on every woman’s nightstand ‘Milk and Honey’ by Rupi Kaur. It’s a book of poetry, about healing and hope, discussing themes of love and loss, bringing about an enlightened self. Kaur ends the book with a tender love letter to her readers, thus reads “you have made it to the end. With my heart in your hands. Thank you. For arriving here safely. For being tender with the most delicate part of me. Sit down. Breathe. You must be tired. Let me kiss your hands. Your eyes. They must be wanting of something sweet. I am sending you all my sugar. I would be nowhere and nothing if it were not for you. But was too afraid to be. Do you have any idea how much of a miracle you are? How lovely it’s been and how lovely it will always be? I am kneeling before you. Saying thank you. I am sending my love to your eyes. May they always see goodness in people and may you always practice kindness. May we see each other as one. May we be nothing short of in love with everything the universe has to offer and may we always stay grounded. Rooted. Our feet planted firmly onto the earth”. This book will certainly not be everybody’s cup of tea, I know that and I am overlooking it. If it helps just one of you, then I am happy to mention it here.

One late night this week, on the tube homeward bound, I was accosted by a couple. One sat purposefully too close to me, physical and personal boundaries abandoned, and the other, opposite, knocking knees. The woman, her head leaning on my shoulder, was stonned I would say and the man somewhat addled, suffering a huge … Read more Mobile Photography & Art – Flickr Group Showcase – 21 October 2018

Urgently contemporary, this weeks mobile photography and art flickr group showcase is a huge thrill and I know all about thrills. This week I chatted with a friend, one I’ve not seen for such a long time. The most charming man, the most fragrant and also the most generous. Slipping back into rambling conversations about, art, photography and sex, we absorbed and absolved one another as we nudged the English language to its limits. Art as in life, is about desire and the mobile photographers and artists that we have featured in this weeks showcase, have satiated mine. There’s real humanity in this showcase, with insights into love and longing with the under current narrative, stimulating and deeply rewarding. Enjoy!
