HOPE

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 17, 2017, 11:27 PM


I can imagine that some of my watchers and friends, will wonder why it seems that I have retired from the cosplay and I have ventured into other type of artworks. I will allow myself to vent a little with you, waiting for someone to read me and make me some comments that will be very welcome.
Many things have happened in my life since 2013, the year in which my mother died after a long agony and legal suit against the hospital institution where she was definitely killed because of a bad practice. I moved her to another hospital where she spent her last 3 days in relative peace of mind. But since then I feel like another person. My health began to deteriorate and I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I am currently under treatment and my body hurts as much as my heart. At the same time I suffered problems in the labor question, very long to explain, but I hope to stabilize soon.
As a result of my illness I lost the energy to exercise and have fun as I used to. I am currently fighting against that and against many things in my private life. I write a new novel and I take pictures all the time. I am learning to be a photographer and to live with pain. But I have made the firm intention to return to cosplay later this year. It's something I love to do and I miss too much. I have lost contact with my dear photographic friends, two of whom have acquired well-deserved fame and prestige, and I do not rule out the possibility of returning to work with them. I want to do many things, to go over pain, loneliness, misunderstanding ... I have always done everything that I have proposed and I hope this time is not the exception.
Meanwhile, I leave here some photographs that inspire me, which make me experience some relief when I contemplate them and that awaken in me the desire to recover the most beautiful part of my life.



SPANISH

Puedo imaginarme que algunos de mis watchers y amigos, se preguntarán por qué pareciera que me he retirado del cosplay y me he aventurado en otro tipo de artworks. Me permitiré desahogarme un poco con ustedes, esperando que alguien me lea y me haga algún comentario que será muy bienvenido.
Han sucedido muchas cosas en mi vida desde 2013, año en que mi mamá murió tras una larga agonía y un pleito legal contra la institución hospitalaria donde, definitivamente, la mataron por una mala práctica. La cambié a otro hospital donde pasó en relativa tranquilidad sus últimos 3 días. Pero desde entonces yo me siento otra persona. Mi salud empezó a deteriorarse y fui diagnosticada con fibromialgia. Actualmente estoy bajo tratamiento y mi cuerpo me duele tanto como el corazón. Al mismo tiempo sufrí problemas en la cuestión laboral, muy largos de explicar, pero espero se estabilice pronto.
A consecuencia de mi enfermedad perdí las energías para ejercitarme y divertirme como solía hacer. Actualmente lucho contra eso y contra muchas cosas de mi vida privada. Escribo una nueva novela y hago fotografías todo el tiempo. Estoy aprendiendo a ser fotógrafa y a vivir con el dolor.
Pero me he hecho el firme propósito de regresar al cosplay a finales de este año. Es algo que amo hacer y que extraño demasiado. He perdido contacto con mis queridos amigos fotógrafos, dos de los cuales han adquirido fama y prestigio muy merecidos, y no descarto la posibilidad de volver a trabajar con ellos. Tengo ganas de hacer muchas cosas, de pasar por encima del dolor, de la soledad, de la incomprensión...siempre he realizado todo lo que me he propuesto y espero que esta vez no sea la excepción.
Mientras tanto, dejo aquí algunas fotografías que me inspiran, que me hacen experimentar cierto alivio cuando las contemplo y que despiertan en mí el deseo de recobrar la parte más hermosa de mi vida.

My Interviews with DA artists

Vintage Typewriter Avatar by Kezzi-Rose

Totally inspired
Lidia Vives :iconartviveslidia: is more than a photographer . Much more than a model . Natural born actress. An amazing artist , wrapped in a delicate and fragile emotionally down but with a wicked sense of humor. By her own account, was an exhibition of Henri Cartier -Besson which lifted the hurricane would take to rebuild through art .

"We went with the college tour, I was about 17, said 22 Spanish artist. In this tour we borrowed a Polaroid and began to take snapshots of my peers. Obviously they were a lousy photos with bad lighting, but I thought it was funny . There I became interested in photography. I made ​​very simple self-portraits in my room, closeups type “beauty”, and touched up a little with photoshop (then I knew only vaguely touching colors).
 "A year later, continues Lidia, I discovered to Annie Leivobitz in an exhibition in Madrid. I fell with her compositions and was a great encouragemen
Cheerful manipulation "To me, 'says Fab. Le Blanc :iconKIP-K: an artist can only be spontaneous, the idea is spontaneous, implement all the technical details and consider the less but a true artist knows how to seize the moment in a simple, even banal moment and take time to do something wonderful.





Fab. Le Blanc is a French chameleon-artist about we can expect almost anything. Since most irreverent to most sober. Unable to determine if a photographer rather than a musician, or if in any case both are resonance of same. What is a fact is that the photographer and musician and evolve, with other artistic disciplines as performance, acting, painting, and the result is an interesting and very personal universe where converge colors, sounds and sensations.
Fab. claims to have "discovered" anything. His vocation for art, as its development, has been gradually: "I have always been creative, I have always been
Pure expressions"Cuando yo era un niño pequeño –señala el fotógrafo portugués José Calheros :iconJACAC:-  empecé a hacer fotos, y la gente me dijo que eran diferentes, que yo era capaz de captar sentimientos... y desde entonces no he dejado de hacerlo.

José Calheros, arquitecto de profesión, fotógrafo de vocación, nació un 23 de septiembre en Lisboa y es un fotógrafo con muchísima experiencia. Tanto que considero válido apuntar que vive, come y duerme junto a su cámara, porque hasta en sueños puede aparecer una imagen que seduzca su fino instinto.
"Mi primera cámara fue una pequeña Kodak, que usé un par de veces –prosigue José, nostálgico de la infancia en que fue tocado por esa magia -No había dinero para comprar la película, no es tan fácil como ahora. Mi primera foto, lo recuerdo bi

"Me gusta representar y asociar las cosas que están a mi alrededor –señala la fotógrafa inglesa Regular Jane :iconregularjane:- Por el momento gozo de un nuevo entorno porque estoy viviendo en Portugal. La playa y este cielo azul claro se han convertido en una fuerte presencia en mi galería desde el momento en que pasó a formar parte de mi vida cotidiana. Soy originaria de Londres, así que esto es un lujo. Echo de menos mi ciudad natal y tengo un montón de planes de fotografía para cuando regrese allá.
"Trato de crear un ambiente de época en mis fotos- continúa la artista- Me encanta practicar la fotografía con esta playa cerca de mí, cambiar el estado de ánimo y recobrar esa escena cuando la abro en photoshop.

El arte de Regular Jane es el de alguien capaz de disfrutar intensamente los más pequeños y cotidianos placeres de la vida. Una taza de capuccino, libretas moleskine, clásicas y digitales; unas gafas para el sol en forma de corazón, la afectu
World is a rare placeDesde lo casual hasta lo teatral. Escenas de calle interactuando con complejo y sesudo arte conceptual. Tomas de un turista transformadas en trozos de vida cotidiana de colores vibrantes y voces audibles. Variantes interesantísimas del viejo y resucitado arte del pin-up y audaces imágenes de cosplay. Todo esto y más es el inclasificable trabajo del español Borja Pascual :iconBorjaPascual: artista visual de múltiples registros.



El propio Borja Pascual revela lo que podría ser una clave de su estética personal:
"El cine me fascinaba… me fascina. Sobre todo me quedaba con las películas que visualmente me impactaban: "Dark City", "Dune", "El gran Lebowski", "Dentro del Laberinto", "El Cuervo", etc. Lo que me atrapaba, de manera instintiva y sin haberle puesto nombre, era la combinación de escenografía, luz, color y cámara. Con esa confianza en uno mismo que solo puede salir de la ingenuidad, decidí que
So emotionalINTERVIEWS WITH DEVIANT ART PHOTO ARTIST III
La artista italiana, actualmente radicada desde hace pocos meses en Hampshire, Inglaterra, Verónica Strambini :iconslairea: es uno de los casos más asombrosos que he conocido. He tenido la oportunidad de seguir de cerca sus progresos como fotógrafa, desde que se inició con fotos, digamos, "divertidas", pero siempre expresivas, hasta la actualidad en que sus fotos son verdaderas piezas de una profunda, reflexiva y enternecedora belleza.

Aunque Verónica ha declarado que actualmente la fotografía es su máxima pasión, psicóloga de profesión, amante de la poesía y la música, nunca imaginó que llegaría hasta este punto cuando en 2009 -1 de septiembre, fecha que recuerda con profunda nostalgia- una querida amiga la requirió como modelo:
"Ella no me dijo "hoy vamos a tener una sesión de fotos", o algo así –recuerda- Mientras estábamos estudiando ella se tomó un descanso y me dijo repentinamente: "¡No te muevas!"... Regresó, cámar

Gente, gente, gente.  Un transeúnte cualquiera irradia de pronto la magia que incita al fotógrafo peatón a disparar su cámara, y quizá quienes hayan presenciado esa misma escena no le hayan prestado la mínima importancia; ni a la escena ni al artista furtivo. Qué habrá visto de especial el artista en esos gestos, en sus atuendos que ha sucumbido al capricho de plasmarlos para siempre. Es muy probable que no lo averigüen sino hasta después que el fotógrafo exponga la imagen… puede que el resultado los desconcierte: una carcajada florida, un andar presuroso, un cruce de piernas, un apretón de manos. Bolsos y zapatos volando bajo la lluvia o entre el apremio de los días laborables. Ascenso y descenso de elevadores y vagones de m
Essential beautyINTERVIEWS WITH DEVIANT PHOTO ARTIST II
La belleza predomina en el mundo. El problema es que detectarla es cada vez más complicado. Tendemos a confundir "lo lindo" con lo Bello (en mayúsculas); a nombrar "bello" lo que los medios masivos de comunicación nos venden como tal, cuando la verdadera belleza es capaz de esconderse en los lugares más insospechados. La belleza, dice Dennis, :iconcatch---22: se encuentra hasta en una semilla seca, que es el origen de la vida. Y la vida misma es belleza. Esa es una lección que se aprende tras ejercitar largamente el don de la observación, caso de este artista del lente cuyo privilegiado ojo es una auténtica caja detectora de tesoros:
"Creo que la belleza que se encuentra en cada paisaje, en cada esquina –señala Dennis, mejor conocido como Catch 22, un artista estadounidense que rehúsa exhibir su verdadera identidad por motivos personales- Uno sólo tiene que ser capaz de verlo. Uno sólo tiene que mirar. "Hermoso, hermoso. Magnífica desolación"
Pin-up Heroes: CHAPTER ONEINTERVIEW WITH GEORGE RODRIGUEZ
By LAYLA RABIA
George Rodriguez, known on fashion industry as Grodpro :iconGrodpro:, is one of leading American fashion photographer, but he doesnt like to be photographed. Although it focuses more strongly to photograph beautiful women, it is also an extraordinary photographer of male models. In one case as in the other, he explores naturally both wild side too much as the sensitivity of the subject of his work. Human cats comfortably relaxed and absolutely free. Practically doesnt exist artifices in Rodriguez’ portraits.
What he likes, and too much, is talk about his own work, is that despite specialize in fashion photography, has expanded and enriched his field of work in a lot of new levels. It has transcended the merely commercial for manifest as any artist of sensuality and made something serious and disturbing about glamor. All this has led him to dabble in the renovated pin-up genre, the rogue-commercial portrait as in vogue among 40s to 70
