The Genius of Photography 摄影演义 - 5

In the course of our 170 year relationship, photography has delighted us, served us, moved us, outraged us and occasionally disappointed us. But mainly, it has intrigued us by showing the secret strangeness that lies beneath the world of appearances. And that is photography's true genius

"I remember my first experience with daguerreotype. I was just, I was stunned, you know as immediately stunned. It was like a miracle. It just looked like a prodigy of nature. You know the nineteenth century was referred to as a mirror with the memory. And I think that's a beautiful description of precisely what daguerreotype is. "


"A daguerreotype is not a conventional operating system the way of photograph is. That's the light operates differently with daguerreotype. The silver grains of the image sit up on the surface in a way that they don't quite in a photograph. In the paper photograph they tend to sink into the surface. So what you see when you look at a daguerreotype is light reflected back through an image. And there is something about that that begins to approximate the actual experience of the taking of the photograph itself that particular moment when the image is captured. The people that you're looking at seem not exactly alive, but on the edge of being present. "


"One of the things that are interesting about this process and much makes a different from a lot of other photographic processes is no separation between the material that you shoot with and the finished result, the plate that was in a camera is the same plate which would eventually be displayed. And for me, there is an immediacy in that relationship between the image and the actually physical artifact of the event. "

" I always love daguerreotypes. Everything I love about photography is always there in the 1840's and 50's, incredible value arrange from absolute reflected bright white to the deepest darkest
well of these blacks. Unbelievable about a detail, great usually, a great deal of differences in delta field, because the lens as to so wide open and they are intimate. "

"Now, I have to put it up onto a gilding stand and turn on a torch and get into that. If you don't gild it, you could wipe the image off with a slightest touch, even a brush stroke across the surface of daguerreotype will remove the image. "

"I love daguerreotypes. They are marvelous. They are very pretty, but it's a dead end. Tolbert recognized that human communication was through paper. "

《My Last Serenade》--夏日已近完结篇

《My Last Serenade》

---我的最后小夜曲

仰面,已不觉得阳光刺眼

回头,已看不见背影

我知道,夏日已近完结篇。。

*-*

很喜欢这首歌,不仅因为优美的旋律

更是如诗般的歌词从歌手的口中滑落,又飞起,

伤感依旧,却使你看到了美丽。

推荐歌词,做到了这么长却没有一句废话,

歌曲已经渐渐占领了我们生活点点角落并且逐步扩张

他唱歌是为了你,

你听歌的时候,又想到了谁?

o(∩_∩)o...

 

抒情的R&B,歌曲风格抒情R&B再加少量Hip-hop。原丹麦组合nik&jay成员Joey Moe单飞之作——Moe Town完美、磁性、温情十足的声线,演绎性感诱人的R&B情歌。
很不错的声线,把R&B风格的精华演绎的很地道
