To Really Remember Something, Don't Take Pictures Of It | PHOTO - MEMORY

To Really Remember Something, Don't Take Pictures Of It | PHOTO - MEMORY | Looks -Pictures, Images, Visual Languages | Scoop.it

"[....] When people rely on technology to remember for them — counting on the camera to record the event and thus not needing to attend to it fully themselves — it can have a negative impact on how well they remember their experiences,” she explains. [...)"

Monica MIRZA's insight:

Pictures help remember past events (people, places...) though ! As a calculator might "weaken" our own calculating abilities, would taking pictures decrease our ability to remember ? I'd never considered the issue from that point of view -paradoxical, yet it might well be true...

Amazing Microscope Shots | PHOTOS

Amazing Microscope Shots | PHOTOS | Looks -Pictures, Images, Visual Languages | Scoop.it
These microscope pictures are taken from the book ' Microcosmos', created by Brandon Brill
Monica MIRZA's insight:

The book displays many scanning electron microscope (SEM) images : insects, human body parts and household items -all too small to see with the naked eye.

Unlike the picture above, most of them show something we cannot identify unless we read the corresponding caption...

Enquête Fisheye : les Français et la photographie | Phototrend.fr

Enquête Fisheye : les Français et la photographie | Phototrend.fr | Looks -Pictures, Images, Visual Languages | Scoop.it

Le mois dernier, le magazine Fisheye profitait de sa troisième édition pour publier les résultats de son enquête réalisée avec l'Ifop au sujet des Français. [...] Peu importe le medium, l’époque est loin où savoir/pouvoir prendre des photos était réservé à une élite. D’ailleurs, 56% des répondants indiquent que pour eux la photographie est un outil permettant de se souvenir d’événements passés. On est bien loin ici de l’idée idyllique que l’on se fait du photographe qui photographie pour la beauté de l’image, mais c’est plutôt la photographie comme aide mémoire et boîte à souvenirs. [...]"

Monica MIRZA's insight:

L'instantanéité de la photo numérique et sa facilité de partage et diffusion font aujourd'hui glisser la photographie vers une extimité qui peut parfois s'avérer un tantinet exhibitionniste... ?! :o)

"[...] Le vinyle revient en force et 2014 restera comme un cru exceptionnel en la matière. L'autre bonne nouvelle c'est qu'avec lui, la pochette d'album, [...] reprend des couleurs. Voici notre sélection, forcément subjective, des dix visuels les plus mémorables de l'année écoulée."

Monica MIRZA's insight:

Graphisme, illustrations, photomontages... quelques belles trouvailles !

Coïncidence : ma préférée est aussi celle du seul (groupe de) musicien(s) que je connais dans les dix proposées... quelques explorations musicales à venir, donc.

A selection of pictures showing the career of Oscar-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman
Monica MIRZA's insight:

The photos of Philip Seymour Hoffman displayed by the Guardian have also made me discover films I didn't know he acted in...

"The Mountain" - Time-lapse PHOTOGRAPHY | TSO Photography

"The goal was to capture the beautiful Milky Way galaxy along with one of the most amazing mountains I [TSO Photography] know El Teide. I have to say this was one of the most exhausting trips I have done. There was a lot of hiking at high altitudes and probably less than 10 hours of sleep in total for the whole week. [...]"

Monica MIRZA's insight:

El Teide (filmed in April 2011) is Spain´s highest mountain (3718m) : one of the best places in the world to photograph the stars. It hosts Teide Observatories,  which is considered one of the world´s best observatories.

A dazzling time-lapse movie :-)
