    Real Dreams By Duane Michals

    1472 words, 6 pages

    Nothing is what I once thought it was. You are not what you think you are. You are nothing you can imagine. I am a short story writer. Most often photographers are reporters. I am an orange. They are apples. One of the biggest cliches in photography is to say that he is a personal photographer. We must touch each other to stay human. Touch is the only thing that can save us. I use photography to help me explain my experiences to myself. Some photographers literally shoot everything that moves, hoping somehow, in all that confusion to discover a photograph. The difference between the artist and

    "At one with the power of the American landscape, and renowned for the patient skill and timeless beauty of his work, photographer Ansel Adams has been a visionary in his efforts to preserve this country's wild and scenic areas, both on film and on Earth.

    The early cave paintings attest to the fact that man has always wanted to record himself, his activities and the environment around him. This art, until very recently, has been reserved for the talented individuals, not the everyday, ordinary person. Painters of great renown abound throughout the centuries and have left remarkable pictorial histories of our journey through time. While the camera was not invented until the 19th century, the two basic elements of a camera had been well known for hundreds of years. The first element of a working camera known by the anci

    The Six Basic Features Of The World Economy And How It Is Linked To Globalization

    705 words, 3 pages

    HSY 3701/1 ASSIGNMENT: 1 According to Knox et al (2003: 71 83) we can distinguish six basic features of the world economy as: -­? Firstly the world economy consists of a single world market, in which production is for exchange rather than use. -­? Secondly, the world economy has always had a territorial division between political states. This division predates and grew along with the geographical expansion of the modern state system. -­? A third characteristic of the modern world economy is that it has taken shape of a basic, three-­?tiered pattern, as it has expanded to cover the globe

    “Sanctuary Outside Of The Sanctuary

    1260 words, 6 pages

    The idea of sanctuary has several different dimensions. It is much more than a church, temple, or religious place. The abstract idea of sanctuary is explored in both Cynthia Ozick's “The Shawl” and Charlotte Perkins Gillman's “The Yellow Wallpaper”. Both of the works take into account two eras of history. “The Yellow Wallpaper” addresses a time when women were thought of as inferior while “The Shawl” addresses the Holocaust. The characters in these stories cling to and explore the idea of sanctuary in so far as: love, death, refuge, shelter and other ways. In Gilman’s “The Yellow Wallpaper” t

    Topic 1: The formative influence of Song dynasty ceramics on Korean ceramics of the Koryo dynasty is manifested in the Koryo adoption of Chinese vessel shapes, and above all, the celadon glaze technique.

    Barbara Kruger Old Is Original

    The concept of postmodernism is typified as a return to traditional materials and forms. Consequently, much of the art of this genre is filled with imagery and objects that pertain to previous original concepts. The creativity involved comes from the new arrangement of said past concepts. Thus, something new is created from something old. Postmodernism was born out of a reaction against the fundamental ideals of modernism. More specifically, postmodern artists rejected the modernist obsession with the concept of aestheticism and began by questioning the formal qualities tied to the aesthetic

    Arts And Crafts Movement

    1776 words, 8 pages

    THE ARTS AND CRAFTS MOVEMENT (ACM) aimed to promote a return to hand-craftsmanship and to assert the creative independence of individual craftspeople. It was a reaction against the industrialised society that had boomed in Britain in the Victorian period, and aimed for social as well as artistic reform. Its example was followed in other countries, particularly the U.S.A. After the 1914-18 war, other artistic trends overtook the ACM, and it declined. Industrial production of consumer goods developed in Britain in the eighteenth century, increased massively in the nineteenth, and inevitably a
