Finding God in Maximum Security Prison

Finding God in Maximum Security Prison | The Art of Photography | Scoop.it
It was simple curiosity that guided photographer Serge J-F. Levy to New York’s Green Haven Correctional Facility in 2002.
C.O.'s insight:

Remember the theme from the last article from Nat Geo that I curated?  Ultimately, photos, nature or human alike, will ultimate influence our persception of ourselves, better understand of ppl around us.  Such theme echos iin the current article "Finding God in Max Security Prison".  

As the photographer, Serge J-F Levy said, "It was in quieter moments, however, when Levy said he saw the deeper power of religion in the lives of prisoners. “There's this sincere desire on the part of many inmates to try to understand the state of their soul,” Levy said. “They're trying to understand their predicament, and I think that spirituality in prison not so infrequently dovetails with a form of analysis or therapy. I think there's a sense of introspection and evaluation of one's life that happens within these religious environments, especially in one-on-ones with the chaplains. I didn't expect to see that, and it's fascinating.”

C.O.'s insight:

A totally different approach.  The photographer doesn't want to put any emotion in his works. Instead, he focus on perspective and elements that interested to him.  Not sure if this is the path I would like to follow.

Nowadays, we have different photo devices like dslr, dc, p n s, and smart phone.  We take photographing for granted.  But you know what, there are places in the world that photographing never exists.  This is a project to bring us to these remote areas and take photos for the locals.  Amazing project.

Polaroid SX-70 advert - YouTube

SX-70 ad with original sound!
C.O.'s insight:

Near to the New Year Eve, so please bear me to do something differently. This is a Polaroid Ad decades ago.  It's attractive to me for several reasons:  1.  The voice over reminds me the documentary long time ago.   2.  It shows how to use the camera.  3.  Untill now, I didn't realize Polaroid is a SLR.  4.  It shows a number of decent Polaroid photos.  Not just p & s. , but full of artistic creation.  Now, I have the impulse to find one and take some Polaroid photos.

Principles Of Moments: Thoughts On Street Photography - Faded + Blurred

Principles Of Moments: Thoughts On Street Photography - Faded + Blurred | The Art of Photography | Scoop.it
Lately, the term Street Photography gets batted around willy nilly to describe any given scene that happens to include people in nearly any urban setting.
C.O.'s insight:

I like the ideas of what street photo is really about.  The photos and explanations that Antonio Olmos given in the second half of the article are excellent guidance.  Not only let us understand why those photos are good, but also work as a guidance when we do our street photos or any photos next time.

C.O.'s insight:

I like these photos cus they allows me to see how the photographer captured the "ordinary" scenes and turned into beautiful landscape.  I think that's really difficult and needs a lot of trainings on how we perceive things differently or to have artistic eyes.
