The third task of #phonar is to create a multimedia narrative video with our own photos and soundtrack of one of the unphotographable serie from Michael David Murphy.
Each text refers to a photography which does not exist but could have been. They all start by the caption ” this is a picture I did not take”. Have a look or instead a read they are very nice.
I choose the woman with kleenex:
“This is a picture I did not take of a rain-soaked woman with white hair in a white jogging suit with red stripes down the legs, walking toward me in a downpour, carefully pressing a white kleenex against her bloody nose.”
It evoked me a symphony of red and white. Having taken several shots of rain in Thailand for a project of time-lapse, I knew I had some of the material. the rest are shots made for this project.
The first version includes a personification at one point, The second is all suggestion making it easier for the viewer to construct his/her own image.
I have been absent of this blog since whoua… march! time flies. After one big move back to Europe, UK actually I am ready to resume!
I intend to follow an open class of photography from Coventry university called #PHONAR and am excited! if you want to know more about this program:
I had the pleasure to visit the workplace of a kind, spirited and talented french sculptor in Bangkok. Her name is Val.
She uses wax to create her work.
Then it is molded in bronze with the lost wax technique,
reassembled, covered with patina…
It is a huge work and I am a big fan of what she and her team come up with.
