The Intrinsic Place Of Photographs In Our Lives

 

PHOTOGRAPHY ARTICLES & TIPS

 

By Joelcy Kay, PHOTO CURATOR

 

The expectations and curiosity of waiting for a roll of film to develop rather days or hours depending on how old you are was mostly eliminated by the digital era.  But the feeling and desire of looking at these photographs bearing the weight of the stories it tells have not.

Natural disasters’ documentaries are gut wrenching to watch as most of us cannot imagine enduring such a loss.  These touching historical images are full of personal tiny rescues on the faces of people finding precious belongs left behind by complete destruction. These treasures very often are photographs; they tell stories of their past lives, depicting people they love, and loved ones that are gone, with tremendous emotional charge.

Humans have a way to keep somethings primal, and photographs are one of these relics, as we today take more images than we can count, and our brains or hearts still keep the flame of excitement burning to see the next shot.

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!
