I am a photographer and an artist. I have come to appreciate that the beauty of an image is totally within the eyes (and heart) of the creator and viewer. It is always subjective which is why there are more than one color of paint, more than one shape in this world. I have submitted three separate examples of expression here. This first is a "created" scene with the hippo and the ape that are in love. As recently as the 20th century this symbolism of their expression would have been taboo, however, now in the 21st century this is not the exception but more of the rule. Many people can identify with this imagery. In my second image is a "found" portrait of an un-posed person, an expressed portrait of a photographer shooting what is seen before him. The third image is that of a "manipulated" image. It represents the hyper or creative construct of what the artist (or photographer) wants the view to see. In each of the three images we have what the artist (photographer) wants the viewer to see an experience. My interest as the Guest Curator would be to promote those constructs of creativity that makes it plain what the artist (or photographer) wants their viewers to see and experience. The creator should want their viewers to stop and mentally digest what is being shown, and to have a reaction either good or bad about what they've seen. There should be no benign images, they should whenever possible be powerful, one that would strike up a conversation should they see it in your living room.
