September 2013 - I Love Photography!

Back to School!


With summer over for 2013, we find that September has snuck up on us and we now find ourselves in 'back to school" mode. This term conjures up many thoughts, but in general, the top hits are children, books, computers and learning.

With that, I thought I'd create a newsletter for 'back to school' taking liberties of course to stretch the boundaries, so as to include work by Cara Barer, Mitchell Hartman, Deborah Parkin. Also included will be a mention to the new work by Ellen Jantzen and Danae Falliers, both of whom incorporate the use of computers to generate their final images.

First and foremost, Cara Barer's unique photographs come to mind when we think of school, whether it be stacks of books, words, speed reading or that sandwich taken to school for lunch. All of these new creations evoke thoughts of 'back to school'.

Deborah Parkin's photography specializes in capturing memories and the moods of children. Her photographs capture feelings of isolation, longing and waiting.
The images below bring back some early memories of the summer's end with playtime over (Isolation) and the longing for the beginning of school (Tranquility).

We are all aware of the use of computers in today's art world with some usage being more evident than others. This is not a concern of mine as I look towards the finished product - no matter how it is constructed. Ellen Jantzen and Danae Falliers are two of my many artists who incorporate the use of computer technology into their art, and I love the finished product!
