A big part of getting my groove back as an artist (I seem to have lost it in the code) is going personal and creative art projects. Comissioned and client work is great, and some times it’s down right exciting, but there’s something fun about just doing something for yourself. So here is a really neat stop motion project I worked on with a HUGE help to my husband Matt.
Been dying to share these
My husband shows me these pictures weeks ago and I have had them open in my browser as a form of inspiration for the past few weeks. Every morning I sit down and open the website and just leave that tab there. Every so often I got through my open browser tabs to see what I can close and there they are.. I look through the images and get re-upped for another few hours of work.
Here are only a few of my favorite. They are the some of the oldest and probably the only color photos taken during the depression. The thing that strikes me about them is their ability to make that era feel more real. Obviously growing up in the decade I did, color photos had already infiltrated culture and I grew up feeling like a color photo = real life and black and white was just history. These color photos truly bring to life the age of the depression. The other amazing thing about these photos were the quality of the images captured! I just love the art in the photography.. They aren’t portraits and they are more than photojournalism.. they are real emotion in art!
These are just a few of my favorites. I actually had a really hard time picking the ones to post here because so many of them are amazing!! Head over here to see all of the rest of the images, let it inspire you!
