This is my gallery of my favorite photography from the site. I have included photos from all different methods of photography, including digital and dark room photography. Please read my descriptions under each separate work. ENJOY! :)
The first photograph I chose is called "Figures in the Rain" by Pirkie Jones. I chose this photograph because I think the composition is very cool. I really like how people are hiding behind their umbrellas and you can't see their faces at all. This picture creates a sense of mystery to the viewer.
The second photograph I chose is called "Spring Day Goes" by Ahn, Chang Hong. I chose this photograph because, quite frankly, it freaked me out. The people in the photograph either have their eyes closed or they are somehow missing their eyes, which is very scary looking. It is from 1985, so I imagine someone could have edited the photograph in a certain way in order to create this look.
The third photograph I chose is called "Five Mile Avenue, Forty Mile Bush" by James Bragge. I chose this photograph because it reminds me of the back road I run on. It also reminds me of when I used to go blackberry picking with my grandma off the old dirt road near my house. This photograph was taken in 1875, and I find it very interesting because the quality looks extremely good for an 1875 photograph.
The forth photograph I chose is called "The Sphinx..." by Francis Bedford. I chose this photograph because I think it's a beautiful photograph of Egypt, and I would love to travel there someday. It was taken in 1862, so obviously without a digital camera. The quality is very impressive.
The last photograph I chose is called "Fly Sitting on My Nose" by Ahn, Chang Hong. I chose this photograph because, like her other photograph in this gallery, I found it really creepy looking. It looks as though she developed this photograph in a dark room and then drew on it with colored pencils in order to get the color on the photograph, which is what a lot of artists do with black and white photography.
