Ongoing CHALLENGE !!!

If your picture has been blogged here, it means that it has appealed to over 300 art jurors (currently 50 active) for a whole week or more. That is an achievement!!!

... and what does that mean ??? well according to This ... it means your picture is "... extremely resistant to people wanting to get rid of it", :)

If you see one single picture in this group that you think is not art, please say so (by commenting on it) and tell us why. If you are convincing - we will remove it. This group is to show case the most resistive pictures from the
B&W Art Photography - Is Your Art universal

Grey birds obsess my heart,
mouth-ash, ash of eye.
they settle on the high
That emptied one man into space
The ovens glowed like heavens,
It is a heart,
This holocaust I walk in,
O golden child the world will kill
and eat.

Inside this new love, die.
Your way begins on the other side.
Become the sky.
Take an axe to the prison wall.
Walk out like someone suddenly born into colour.
Do it now.
You're covered with thick cloud.
Slide out the side. Die,
and be quiet. Quietness is the surest sign
that you've died.
Your old life was a frantic running
from silence.

The speechless full moon
comes out now.

jag mötte en syster i natten
hennes ögon blänkte som gråt
genom smutsen skränet och skratten
mot gryningen följdes vi åt

det var väl en dröm allenast
en dikt som strök mej förbi
jag glömde den nästan genast
minns bara dess melodi

Das sechste Design. Auge von Polyphem

The sixth design. Polyphemus's eye
The episode in Odyssey is the oldest testament to cannibalism in ancient Greek literature. Walter Burkert detects in the Polyphemus episode a subtext that "seems to offer us something more ancient: threatened by the man-eater, men conceal themselves in the skins of slaughtered animals, and thus, disguised as animals, escape the groping hands of the blinded monster.

03.13.09 : How Will You Breathe?

I had the opportunity to shoot at a local prop warehouse today and had a blast. I was captivated by the mannequins and would love the opportunity to shoot them again. This warehouse has everything you can think of: phones, TVs, signs, water fountains, eye glasses, guns, uniforms, medical supplies, LP's...I could go on and on. I just kept thinking what a way to get rid of all our old "junk." Anyway, I'm very grateful that they let me shoot without any hassles. It's so common these days for folks to be suspicious and the worker there made me feel very welcome.
