More interesting from BBC about photography and art. YES, photography is an art form! But like with all art, I don´t HAVE to like it. And when everything is art, nothing is….? Sometimes being a professional within a trade/media that is also used in creating art can be tricky, I must admit. Well, after all, I decide!
I found this article about photography and images on BBC. Written by Phil Coomes, picture editor.
Many questions and not so many answers. Just like my blog. But thinking and contemplating about things is good, I think.
A friend of mine just made a quote on FB from one of todays papers. “I could read fast from an early age, but I didn´t understand anything. When I so did slow down I understood that the letters made words, that created pictures, that was put together so that they created stories that were larger than time and space”.
Quote from Stina Oscarson in DN.
Come to think of it, the images/pictures comes first. You open your baby eyes and there it is. The picture. The letters, the words and the stories comes later. So perhaps it is not so strange that today we communicate more with pictures than ever before.
“In the beginning was the word”. No, words came later. To help us describe all our images. All what we see.
Just a thought.
What would life be without imperfection? Boring I think. It is those small pieces that not really fit, or has fallen off that makes things interesting. The not perfect. They tell the story. Flowers are beautiful when they are fresh, yes, but they are also beautiful when the water has dried out and they bow. Like with us people. Things with a patina attracts me. From the wear you can see if things were used and loved, and how much. I like reading the story in the imperfect.
