“The excellency of every art is its intensity, capable of making all disagreeable evaporate.”
What kind of art moves you? I am most touched by photography and sometimes paintings as well. I saw this editorial of Karlie Kloss for Vogue Mexico October 2016 and starting thinking about the concepts of emotion in art. A photograph can be especially poignant if the model communicates emotions effectively. While all models are striking, some simply wear clothing well. Other models really convey a wide range of emotions in their pictures. Some model’s emotions are so much more apparent in their pictures.
I can see the intensity in Karlie’s gaze. As a result, I am more drawn into some of the pictures. While some editorials are interesting because of their settings, others are more memorable because the models conveyed a greater range of emotions. Some models are simply insta-popular. But the more interesting ones are those that take great pictures. They are part of photos that are truly works of art.
Have a lovely week!
