Love depicted in art
This article is based on photojournalism which is a particular form of journalism that employs images in order to say something. These are a set of pictures that I think they are interesting. Each one of them has their own beauty and tells a unique story and a different point of view when talking about love. I chose the topic of “love” because it is the greatest and strongest feeling that exists in the world. Love makes you feel more than you can image. Portraying this feeling in a photograph makes it become way more than just a feeling. I hope you enjoy each photo as I did.
The mystery of a kiss
This photo symbolizes how mysterious and magical a simple kiss can be. We can easily feel how much love the picture is bursting out of it. The photo was taken in the 50’s, so it’s quite old . The black and white is what makes the audience notice that it is not a modern picture and immediately captures their attention. We can see that the person that took the picture was focused on capturing mostly the couple. The kiss is the protagonist because it is the first thing you notice when looking the photo at the first time. This is achieved by only capturing the couple and not the whole background. This means that love is basically represented in a kiss.
Regretting is something unknown
This photo basically give the message of living your life to the fullest. When saying “yes to all” you are not worrying about anything, and you re only focused on the experiences gained. This means not having any regrets, because at some point the decisions you made helped you become the amazing person you are now days. So don’t think twice, make mistakes and learn from them. Let love consume you. This photo captures the attention of people because of the fluorescent pink letters. The background of it is a dark-bluish sky, so it makes the letters pop out. Definitely the vivid colors of the image has an intense effect on the audience.
Love is an exquisite form of art
Love is a type of art. Most of couples have their romantic dates at the movies, restaurants or looking the stars at night. In this picture we can see an art museum and a person standing in front of three paintings. In the white wall are big black letters spelling out “Take me to an art museum and kiss me between the paintings”. This is turning love into a stunning way of art. The kiss becomes part of the paintings displayed on the wall. The photo demonstrates a simple and kind of warm museum. The yellowish lights build up an exclusive and different environment. There’s a black silhouette standing at the right side. This silhouette stands out because of its dark color contrasting with the pastel colors in the gallery. As you look deeper into the photo you can find more beauty and interesting factors that contribute to the making of the picture something spontaneous and flawless.
Eyes can tell more than words
In this photograph we can easily distinguish Johnny Depp and Kate Moss. The camera is focused on only the two of them. What highlights in this picture is the pure loving and innocent way of looking at each other. It is clear how vivid the romanticism is living upon them. The way they are holding hands demonstrate that they love each other and feel safe when holding each other’s hands. Johnny is wearing a black suit, while Kate is wearing a bright white dress. These two colors create contrast and depicts how opposites complement each other. Since it is night, it makes the environment more romantic and gives a touch of elegance. It’s easy to notice the strong love that surrounds this photo.
These four pictures I chose have complimented my life. They are different ways in which people see life and how love is much more than a physical attraction. Basically is how the complexity of love is shown through images. All of these pictures have elements that capture someone’s attention. Something especial of these photos is that they are anonymous. So we don’t really know who took them. It remains as a mystery. At last, we can see that photojournalism is an efficient and creative way of transmitting important and meaningful messages. This photos are not the exception. Full you’re life with love, and make each day count and worth it.
