Photo in Exhibition in Barcelona

I’m delighted that this photo from Women En Large:  Images of Fat Nudes is in The Art of Photography – Barcelona  at the Valid World Hall Gallery. It’s a renowned center for the visual arts.

Although photography first emerged as a technological invention, it was also quickly conceived as an artistic practice as well. Pictorialist photographs in the nineteenth century were created to look like paintings, while advocates of straight photography in the first part of the twentieth century strived for the purely photographic means of creating photographic meaning. Street photographers devoted the medium to capturing the fleeting moment, while in the last part of the twentieth century many photographers turned to staging and directing in order to utilize photography for artistic visual communication. Art photography also includes numerous genres and creative practices from portraiture, landscape and still life to abstract and conceptual photography. In this exhibition we asked contemporary photographers to show how they understand photography as a fine art practice in the twenty first century. — Zsolt Batori, curator of the exhibition.

The diversity of the exhibition is impressive, but so is the breadth of 21st Century photography

First Pandemic Shadow Video and New Photo

Laurie says:

This is the first Pandemic Shadow video I’ve done. I’m very interested in doing more of these but it’s definitely something I’m just starting to explore. And that includes some of the technical aspects.  This is completely unmanipulated. It’s exactly as I saw and framed it; the sound is the wind.

Below is my latest Pandemic Shadows photograph. I keep finding really different beautiful images as I walk through what is still, very much, our pandemic world.  I saw this remarkable web pattern walking out of a friend’s place. Sometimes there is a wonderful gift as you walk through life. Of course, it helps to be able to see it. It came from a wire fence and reflections.
