Once again, enjoy the rantings and view from a great photographer. Reblog & follow because this is the kind of guy you want to learn from.
Jennifer’s World, Armchair Physics, And an Empty Stomach.
Beach Culture, Surf, Snorkeling, and Climbing. This encapsulates all the things that Jen loves to do, and again like this Painting: “Christina’s World”. It can be a narrative without saying anything at all. Her ability of being very physical and athletic supersedes many as evident in her photograph here. This was born out of a simliar shot that had been taken of me at the ruins of a Roman Aqueduct in the middle east. Jen had seen that photograph, and wanted one like it, and I want to revisit creating that again.
Most of photography for me is inspiration from the stories inside my head. And then sometimes as in this case, its a emulation or copy(elites sugar coat it by saying: ”Homage.”) of famous works of ark. This idea of COPY is often welcomed by art snobs and magazine editors, but often jeered by non pros, and student photographers.
There is this dicotomy shift between these two trains of thought. But if you subscribe to the Post Modernist & Ecclesiastical thought that Everything has been Done, then you have no choice to side with the Art House Curator. Is it Nieveity that makes one believe they can create something totally different? Is it ego that allows a student to believe that something new will be created from nothing, never before seen by humanity?
For me, I believe two things, that Einstein’s Relativity, and Law of Conservation of Energy are convincing forms of rebuttal to an argument of COPY/Plagerizing. Combining the two, you begin by saying that Energy is not Created/Destroyed. It just takes on a new shape or form. Then Relativity Theory with that idea that Energy can also be Physical Matter. Art, Photography, Literature are all forms of Energy and Physical Matter. And the perspective that an IDEA is often repackaged, and redrawn, and in our new economies, resold is not a new one at all.
All this begs the question, if all this energy cannot be created or destroyed but just take new form, if all physical forms were at one time something else, and if all immagination and inspiration and art were also thrown into this quantum mixing bowl of mexican food all jumbled up, then where did it all come from if there is a single point origin? And how did that come to be?
I guess it would make sense if I was high. Let the breakfast burritos and dick/fart jokes begin. Its a weekend. And I’m working…still.
