A quiet day that passed by without colour, but with enough words and music to set the inertia for the long weekend. I really should get my fingers moving more often.
Found Exposure by portrait photographer Mary Ellen Mark. Reading through snippets of the background of some of her images was fascinating. The book has 134 of her selected photographs taken over four decades. The selection is perhaps devoid of objectivity and is driven more by emotion, which is the artist's primary muse. Lot of direct appeal and quite a few photographs that I will remember. In the epilogue she mentions that computers by facilitating easy enhancement of digital photographs make our images all shiny and beautiful, almost pushing the communicative, emotive and story-telling aspects of a photograph to the periphery.
