Mariuca - Photo essay JANUARY 2017

This is a rather big collection of photos on the subject of Women. I hope it complements the previous two collections of MEN.

I need to look at these. I'm afraid that I started with the essays the first month they showed up and then didn't look again.

It's appropriate with the abstract expressionism challenge coming up, because I found the individual photos of Aaron Siskind rather lifeless and boring. As a group, they got more interesting.

I started out with ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' insteps essay and found myself in wonder at what a difference a collection makes. Some photos were wonderful on their own. Others I would have scrolled by quickly if viewed by themselves. Yet with the others they gained a life and vitality that they didn't have by themselves. I'm not saying it well, sorry.


I particularly liked the photo of the man holding the bag. (4th from the end, I think?). The ghosting it gets from the shadow on the left and the reflections on the right gives it a sense of movement while standing still. It's like it's breathing.

Wendy, thank you. I think you described the making of a photo essay very well. This could start a long discussion that I'd be happy to participate in but not in the posting thread. We created a Photo Essay Side Challege Discussion forum for this type of discussion. I hope you will look back through past efforts by all the essayists. I remember you joined us last year or the year before. Been a while! Time to try it again?
