Friday weekend kick-off: Pictures
Happy Friday, enke-lings!
In light of this week’s global events in Syria I want to dedicate this blog to photography. Pictures can be the most potent and direct story-telling method. So here…a collection of photographs that illustrate this multifaceted art form.
The death of 2 prominent journalists in Homs, Syria this week captured the world’s attention. American reporter Marie Colvin and French photojournalist Remi Ochlik were casualties of the instability and chaos of the Assad regime in Syria. Ochlik’s photographs beautifully captured the Arab Spring throughout the uprisings.
On a different note – photos are just plain cool. Pictures can challenge the assumptions under which we live and compete with the very forces of physics. Take a look at the mind-boggling work of Erik Johansson and see if you can tell what’s real and what’s illusion.
And finally, a little inspiration. These pictures give a little oomph into the weekend and provide some perspective on direction and focus.
Enjoy your Friday!
