Morgan Levy Interview: Perceiving the Lonely Pauses Before Movement and Capturing Its Form at PhotoWhoa Blog | Discover how you can be a better photographer

Morgan Levy Interview: Perceiving the Lonely Pauses Before Movement and Capturing Its Form at PhotoWhoa Blog | Discover how you can be a better photographer | The Art of Photography | Scoop.it
It’ll be clear when looking at the forthcoming images that there is a lot going on in conceptual street/landscape/portrait photographer Morgan Levy’s work. Many of her images will seem caught in an impenetrable stillness.
C.O.'s insight:

"Though I often work in picturesque places, the intent isn’t to depict beautiful landscapes. It’s to find and create an image (or the raw material from which to composite an image) that represents or evokes a specific idea or thought. Using landscape to successfully convey ideas is challenging. And I don’t always succeed."  This is exactly what I want to learn!

 

"I’m attracted to ambiguous undertones. If a subject smiles in a photograph, the viewer thinks he or she understands something about this person or this moment. Expressions I’m drawn to are ones where the answer isn’t obvious, where the viewer is left wondering. This is what I mean by a “pregnant pause”: a moment embedded with meaning and significance that is somewhat withheld."

 

So insightful to me.  A really great interveiw!!!

C.O.'s insight:

In this interview, Dunane Michals touched on portrait.  it's not simply the face.  Rather, it's how to show the "person" from the face. 

The projects that he did were also thinking out of box, e.g. grandpa goes  to paradize, exhibition for animals, etc.
