today I’d like to take you along and show you a photo series. This format is new on Tamara’s and my blog. With our photo series, we’d like to take you on small trips and show you our viewpoint of things. Unlike our photo walks, we don’t want to describe a lot but let the pictures speak for themselves!
Last week, I started my tour with my Canon EOS 5D MarkIII and my SIGMA 24-105mm F4 DG OS HSM | Art lens to explore the Donaukanal (Danube Canal) and the city center of wonderful Vienna. But take a look for yourselves:
Today, I would like to show you some conceptual photography series, which fascinated me immediately. Not just because of their alterity and simplicity, but the interesting people, who have been portrayed on a magnificent and imaginative way.
We are living in a time characterised by a strong media current and “cheap memories”. I shoot more photos now than ever before, but especially valuable are the few pictures from my childhood days and family photos that came into being long before I was born, a time when it was still largely considered expensive and impracticable to shoot hundreds of snapshots. Digital technology enables us to capture and preserve virtually every important moment in our lives, but the decision of whether a moment is actually crucial could not be made by any digital camera in the world. It is this dilemma of whether trivial snapshots might dilute the really important ones in their sheer quantity that Catherina Balet thematised in her project „Strangers in the Light”.
