Nowadays, posting all travel photos with your family are over in social media. Not everyone is into posting every photo, as privacy is essential for them. If you are one of them who wants to showcase your travel photos but in different ways, then there are more unique ways to show your travel memory. One is converting it into canvas wall art.
Our parents love to take a picture of us when we were young that the childhood photos in our home are too many. They take a lot of photos from different events like birthdays, graduations, holidays, and daily moments. But all of these photos cannot be remembered at all times. It would be great to turn your favorite photos into portrait paintings.
When you look at the sky what do you look to find? Do you look at it for the beautiful blanket of blue surrounded by cotton cloud pillows? Does the sky cover your canvas creating a snapshot to last throughout time without a camera? Have you ever tried taking that perfect picture of the sky? The picture that really pops out above all the rest is the picture that really keeps your eyes locked in on what you are looking at. A picture that can really make a person's eyes shine is so hard to find these days. When you take a picture did you miss something in the picture that you caught? Go back over your picture that you have taken over the years. Take a very good long look to see if there is anything hidden inside the picture that you missed before. Recreate the story of the day that you took that picture. What did you find that was hidden that you did not see before?
Much has come out of the 20th Century — two world wars, rockets, speedy international communication, electricity, a rich and diverse panoply of international art and literature, Joseph Stalin, and of course, Adolph Hitler, who begat 1930’s German dancer, actress, producer and filmmaker, Leni Riefenstahl. Much has been written about Riefenstahl, who passed away at the age of 101 in 2003, and there is much more to write about and speculate. Her life in the arts has raised a myriad of moral, philosophical and ethical questions, as well as questions about the role of the artist in the political sphere.
The view that I am rather besotted with, an ever changing landscape continually showcasing the enormity of happenings that occur in a bustling inner city suburb, stretching to the mountains in the distant skyline. Perched on the upper floor of a high-rise building and blessed to be uninhibited by surrounding peers, the view is exceptionally sweeping and vast.
In this chapter we will look at several questions. What is the relationship between photography and memory? How can a still image/photograph produce or recall memories? What information do we get through photographs and through memories? How do memories transform through language and what does naming/defining memories do in terms of remembering and forgetting? How do the images/memories exist through projection?
In this section we will look at how our memories are transformed through speech and how they affect the process of remembering and forgetting. As an example I will use a very unique case, the work of Lindsay Seers, whose memory went through a very unusual process.
If I cannot recall memories of my mother, I experience a feeling of mourning. As if remembering is a responsibility even though I wonder how much of our memory is actually selective.
