I’ve wanted to collaborate with Kendra @whereness for a long time. These photos
(Kendra’s on top, mine on bottom) are the result of a conversation she
and I had about the photographer Todd Hido and how much we both love his
style and technique. This is our first Hido-inspired photo set.
“To me it is no mystery that we can only photograph effectively what we
are truly interested in or—maybe more importantly—are grappling with.
- Todd Hido
Your heart is hurting. Somebody has wronged you- WE are sorry. Something has brought you so down that you wish to inflict your pain on others because it’s too much for you to take, alone- WE are sorry.
Sitting on your couch wearing shades while you spread black ink to people who don’t deserve the hate
won’t make things right.
You’ll go to bed tonight and the feelings will keep crawling on your skin because you haven’t faced them just yet.
So leave your sexual, twisted thoughts in your mind- they’re not wanted. Leave your negative criticism based on nothing,
at the door- it’s not wanted. Leave your disdain for people who are loved and respected to yourself- it’s not wanted.
If you’re not asked, if you don’t have anything good to say, just don’t say anything at all.
You wear a mask so it’s easy for you to bully others, but why don’t you take it off and reach out?
More can be solved with love than you think possible.
Everyone deserves to be loved everyone deserves to be respected even if you don’t feel this to be true we are all ONE
you are me as I am you
we must move forward we can’t go back yet, somewhere along the line WE somehow got off track
WE are all ONE of this Earth we ALL matter no matter what you may think you’re worth
This piece is a collaboration created by writers and photographers from around the world. We each photographed and wrote about the beauty of our homeland. There are 14 photos, from 9 countries, and all 6 of the inhabited continents. Friends separated by 1000s of miles worked together to show that the world, in all its variety, with all its differences, truly is beautiful!
World of Beauty
Sprinkled hoarfrost beautifies all it touches.
Icy air highlights the silence.
I stop, imagine, forget the madness,
Realize the beauty, the wonder,
and dream to keep it for eternity.
Always I thought I dreamed to see
A land that was as strange as me,
It then came clear, I am a part
Of this strange land inside my heart.
Through the woods we go,
Called by our magical land,
Where past belles still dance.
The beauty of this place
is given nature’s grace
with snow and wonders
I stand face-to-face
Sunlight through murky layers of cloud
scatters diffused light on the ground.
Winds when blow, leaves they rustle
far away from city’s hustle and bustle.
A bay, docked with boats,
Brisk air demands, people grab their coats.
A city filled with so much beauty,
Bound by a sense of honor and duty.
Displayed under broken skies
passed without a second thought
so unlike our to and from
worlds hidden within worlds
The world barely knows this side of you;
The majestic mountains, crashing shores.
Winds blow ever constant,
Weather always perfect.
One day we’ll see each other, once again.
You rhyme everything you write.
Colors are your favorite tools.
When you speak,
Melodies are all you know.
No matter how much
I wished to drown,
you’ve always pushed
me towards the shore.
And your stones
Roots to take hold
Mysterious survivors of an age of ice
Our forests, fields and hearths are lined with the bones of your mountains
The New World grew up around them
Asunder from the civil? No. Enraged
Emeralds border the black stone.
Oh your harsh tropical light, and your
Collab between me and the incredibly amazing @wordrummager. I don’t believe that a Photography/Poetry collab has ever been done so we thought it would be fun to try it. It was pretty challenging but I think it turned out great. I have a great amount of admiration for wordrummagers writing and photography and she is just an all around amazing person, so it was a lot of fun but also a true honor. Below is the transcript if it is too difficult to read on the photos. She has the italics and started off the prompt with the first photo/stanza. Enjoy!
Where the pull of memory Spills like summer Tasting of fresh green Amongst steam and rust visions
The burning of the lock All colors from rusted box Until the painful thoughts flee From heat and wrought
Almost afraid to look Beyond a muddy edge Where shimmery machinery stirs The known and the forgotten
Headstrong to battle ‘gainst time Combating the thirst of hateful savage When the tried blow was painfully struck Your mind bended knee to ravage
The pull of long-forgotten tenderness remains strong Within each sinew and sigh, renewal, awaiting eager fields
Oh how sad,to have shattered the glass To dusty home and splintered headboard Where the glow of tomorrow, still snowflakes of sorrow A long forgotten kingdom with tainted Lord
A lusty yell to a rusty beam Pushes love into air thick with summer And lightens lungs heavy With want of remembered touch
My breath narrowly escapes, first as only a whisper To blow away the wishes of the night Towards forever and eternity’s delight Oh, what a sight All these strands Of falling light
