WARMUP#1

In the portrait of Protein Lattice, Subset Red, the model is seen with a hairless rat with a disgustingly human looking ear on its body. To put a beauty and a beast together, it exaggerates the grace of the model and the ugly of the rat. The subject of the photo, leads the audience focused on its imperfections instead of her imperfections.

WARMUP#2

In Psychogeography, the model is seen in 1950’s fashion, holding what looks to be a baby which has odd eyes. The water seems dark and so does the sky, shadows are put in every single direction of the photo and the sand seems too bright.

 

SHORT ESSAY

Photography has been living with us for so long and has even become a part of our everyday lives. We can just take a snap and even send it to the internet, to the world. So many photos have been taken of everyday lives, of even themselves. Marcel Duchamp had also gave photography a wider perspective since his days as well and computers have given photography a new life by being able to edit and enhance.

 

Decades ago, people wouldn’t have been able to take photos of everything at anytime. People could only be able to take photos if they were rich or if it was a special occasion such as a wedding. Nowadays, people have access to cameras everywhere. If it’s on their phone, tablet or even laptop. You can see photographs of people anywhere, whether it be Instagram, Twitter or Facebook to share their moments at any time. Not only that, but photos can also capture surreal moments in fantasy worlds and even be able to animate them, make them into videos.

 

Marcel Duchamp is a photographer who captured images of everyday objects and called them art, making the range of photography much broader than it was before. Now, not only people or animals could be main subjects of photos, but objects could. His most famous image, the Fountain consists of a urinal which is laid flat instead of upright like how it would usually be. Assigning such an odd and dirty object as a work of art is different and shocked people everywhere, changing what art was forever.

 

Computers can do many different things with images. Some can photoshop and some use computers to their advantage, using them to make art by scratch, by drawing and creating their ideas from their mind. Computer manipulated images can easily be art; it’s been designed by somebody who has created it. Photo manipulation dates back to a long time ago and has existed long before Photoshop was even born.

 

Photography has changed a lot since it was made and it will continue to keep changing. Whether it be drawing, edits, selfies. Now
