In my time ill off I have spent a lot of time researching on the internet into different subjects, some mainstream and some which are on the very edges of human experience.
I have taken the time to look at a lot of art aswell to develop my tastes and find out what really interests me. There is a lot of very different and interesting lifestyles and mindsets represented out there and I have been surprised and amazed by much. It has been a time of self discovery for me.
Now to the point of this blog
In my searches I visited a lot of Photographic Artists websites as I like portrait art. I came across one particular artist who is responsible for the image above and the image on my page.
Now below is and image by the same Photographic Artist upon which I would like you to comment. As you can see it is a properly staged photograph, well lit, modelled, the make up perfect and a certain aura perposefully created.
What I want to ask you all is . . . . . . . . . . .
IS THIS PHOTOGRAPH ART OR, IS IT SOMETHING ELSE ?
What feelings does this image stir in you?
What message does it convey to you?
What message do you think the artist was trying to convey?
Do you feel it has value?
I am not offering my own commentary on it yet as I dont want to have the comments centred on any opinion I might have. So please feel free to comment from whatever standpoint and discuss in my blog comments.
