Photography Accessibility | The Gives & Takes

 

PHOTOGRAPHY ARTICLES & TIPS

 

By Joelcy Kay, PHOTO CURATOR

 

I grew up with limited access to any aspect of photography; before anyone could imagine digital galleries dedicated to amuse strangers with images of what one had for breakfast or dinner.  Five decades ago in Brazil usually only one person in the bunch was rich enough to have photographic equipment.  These luxury items were used during major events such as weddings, graduations, Christmas gatherings, and vacations.

The viewing of the produced photographs, if the Millennials can grasp the concept of waiting; was left for the next time the group got together; when we all, full of excitement would fight over who is seeing it first.  As the pictures move from hand to hand also do the comments about its content, “Marcos has grown so much”, “Cintia no longer has the same boyfriend”.

The romanticism of anticipation died with the digital era we enjoy (or endure) today. Surprisingly, even though we can broadcast every aspect of our lives, as often as we wish, viewfinders still tickles our fancy.

Although photography alone can tell a good part of the story, there are other factors that artists often overlook.

During their search for the best light or the truth, photographers sweat in the heat and shrivel in the cold.  They smell the stench and enjoy the aroma of flowers. They are welcomed and frowned upon. The experiences of being there and the desire to tell the story carried on by pride for their labor of love and expectations that when finalized, the work will be fair to the subject and make a difference, can be overwhelming.

A fresh eye is necessary to organize the delivery of that material, in a fashion that is easy to follow, and yet has impact, by holding the spectators’ attention to the message one wishes to convey. This is when a curator comes into place. Unattached, the curator selects images aiming to promote engagement and consequently readers’ awareness.

Below is a list of services that from time to time you may need. Just ask if you do not see the assistance you require. I’m very flexible!
