Learing Log 12

during this assignment, Jason and I explored the “Reconsidering Icons” Exhibit. this was a quite interesting one. the overall theme was how famous photos were either recreated, or dissected and added a new take on it. One piece that Jason and I enjoyed the most, was “After Life” by Broomberg and Chanarin. This piece was inspired by a famous photo taken by jahangir razmi, in Iran. It was a photograph of a group of Kurdish prisoners being executed. my favorite part was how Broomberg and chanarin took the photo apart and created new compositions. This added a new dimension and perspective to the image. This experience was interesting, was definitely a genius substitute compared to the real thing. only thing is you don’t get to see the detail these artists put into the work because you can’t be right in front of it.
