After the red month of February I am circulating around the topic of Human in this month. I take a picture of a person or more and then I look for a title that adds at least one dimension to it. In this way the beholder can watch and think. At the moment I am using notions from sciences as philosophy, narratology and sociology. I like this very much. Have a look at the latest 365-posts if you like!
In February I had a topic for the 365: a picture a day-series, which was red. Today is the first of March and I decided to not choose another color, although I was triggered. I chose a different category which gives me both: a focus and freedom. Two very important things in art. The new topic will be: human. I am very curious where this will bring me.
I actually chose red as a topic for my pictures in February because of the grey month, the cold and the absence of light. Now it turns out that the sun started early this year. Last week I spent some days in the Harz. There was actually snow left for the right winter feels. So the 365-series continued.
In the middle of February I still embrace the colour red. I am happy to find so many different things in this beautiful color – all over the city, the house, the wardrobe, even the fridge. A visual game in my ongoing 365-series. Take a look, if you like.
Concerning the 365-project: January is filed already, at least my images are. For February I came up with a topic: I am going to take a picture a day containing the colour red. Why is that, one might wonder. Because in the grey, cold month I want to remind me of passion, lust and – why not call it – love. Having a focus is fun. I should try it more often. I did a red month once earlier, when I made my 1000-series and I liked the outcome very much.
On the last day of January I went to Groningen to visit a symposium on The Negotiation of Values in Narrative, which was inspiring to me. I am looking forward how this will effect my future pictures. Because I also am interested in story telling and meta-perspectives. So let’s see, what will rise from that.
Here you see the first picture of February:
It took me a few days to get used to it but now I am in my new rhythm of taking a picture a day. I know it is nothing sensational just every day life. No big things happen, but I try to add some extra to it. I choose the detail and combine it with some words – and every now and then you get some theatre. 🙂
Do you see it?
