Philip-Lorca diCorcia, American Photographer

Many photographers are clear. Philip-Lorca diCorcia is not. His photos are staged and planned, and I found this splendid idea on Wikipedia :

His pictures have been described as “Rorschach-like”, since they can have a different interpretation depending on the viewer.

( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rorschach_test )

Zola said somewhere (about Manet), that behind a work of art he wants to be thinking about the man who did it (therefore the whys and the hows, etc). Isn’t it the case?

Have a nice day?

Richard Estes, American Painter

Hyper-Realism painters are exhausting. Exhausting.

In front of this work, which is technically impressive and visually killing you, you wonder : How does he do that???

More realist than reality, right? There’s a “too much” thing here, and it’s also really gorgeous. In an awe : and it’s a good sign.

I chose 10 paintings for you :

#Instagram & #Photography : Keeping your Kid’s Eye

HELP US
I was lonely, sad and quiet
Walking to go to work
Wondering slowly
In silence
Continuously
What did I do?
I took my cellphone
Opened the photo app
My eyes was wandering around
As I was walking
Along the road
Along the cemetery
I saw trees
Flowers
Tombs
Leaves
Trees again
Flowers
Blackberries
And then
Bars
Metallic bars
With dead ivy
Ivy babies
Bones dead
Little hands
Holding bars not to fall
With no worries
At all
I stopped
Smiled
Took this picture
In black and white
Little dead quiet hands
I called it
“Help Us”
