Talk about Alexandra DE la lethbridge | Belfast photography festival first prize

2022-05-06 0 By

Alessandro Lalesbridge graduated with an MA in photography from The University of Brighton and is a conceptual artist working in photography and installation.Her practice includes the use of discovered and appropriated images, sculptures and moving images.Recurring themes in her work are deception, misdirection, misinformation, visual truth, and the cognitive processing and consumption of information.She’s always been drawn to ambiguity, the gap between this and that, the interpretation and dislocation of ideas, how we consume visual culture.Her work is based on scientific research and contrasts these theories with experimental image making.Without enumerating more of her outstanding resume, she now has 6 projects.Experiment (Partial image) – No Introduction Gesture Archive 2020 (Partial image) – Gesture Archive (2020) is an ongoing series that includes images, still life photography and digital interventions that have been explored.The work uses collage and sculpture to observe the role of the hand in communication.Unspoken forms of communication such as gestures play an important role in our daily lives, gestures can be manipulative and messages delivered in this way can be misunderstood and misleading.Politicians are careful with their gestures so as not to infer negative connotations.Religions use gestures to communicate with deities, and improper cultural gestures abroad can cause offense.Gestures can be misused and misunderstood.But what happens in the absence of gestures?Using Greek statues as a reference, the work was inspired by the lack of body language.In many cases, arms or hands have been lost, broken or amputated over time.The famous statue of Venus is said to be holding an apple in her missing hand.The works included in The Gesture Archive reflect on the balance between presence and absence, truth and lie, transparency and barrier.The Gesture Archive playfully compares these contrasting ideas in the images themselves, questioning their role in constructing meaning.On 6 February 2018, the 100th anniversary of the Representation of the People Act, Parliament began a year-long series of events and exhibitions in honour of the men and women who fought for electoral equality.November 21st marks the 100th anniversary of the passing of the Parliament (Qualifications of Women) Act, which for the first time allowed women over the age of 21 to become MPS on an equal footing with men.The third centenary is December 14, 100 years after the 1918 election, when some women over 30 and all men over 21 were able to cast their first vote.”209 Women” marks this important moment in history and highlights the ongoing need for greater gender equality across society.A collective of female photographers from across the UK have volunteered their time to make and document history, celebrate the centenary of women’s suffrage and advocate for the visibility of women, especially in environments that are still largely dominated by men.Alexandra Lethbridge photographs Farham MP Sura Braverman, who contributed greatly to the campaign.Part of the Road to Honesty – Successful communication requires both verbal and physical expression and must be combined through understanding behavior.Non-verbal communication, defined by gestures and body language, makes up a large part of how we interpret and misunderstand each other.This includes clues about how we lie to each other.Lies are false statements that deliberately deceive, and history shows that humans learned the art of deception not long after spoken language first appeared.If we fast forward to today, we live in a post-truth society, where alternate facts and lies often occur.We continue to see examples of political mistrust and fake news, all of which confirm that we need to adjust our visual literacy to recognize these false truths.The Way of The Honest Man explores this concept by looking at visual deception through gestures and body language and considering the differences between spoken and expressive language.The work takes inspiration from the 1950s salesman archetype.By looking at a time when methods of persuasion were taught and mastered, this work questions whether lying and deception are a visual code, a code that can be understood and eventually mastered.Ideas.We live in a visual image-driven culture where photos are more valuable than words and greatly influence how we think.Money is given visual power with little regard for what we are buying.With 3.2 billion images shared on social media every day, our image culture has us spending less time looking and more time scrolling.Of such a vast array of images, very few are unconstructed, filtered, adjusted, and it is increasingly difficult to distinguish constructed images from the real thing.Understanding constructed images has become part of our visual literacy.We now need different systems to gather information.”Other Ways of knowing” looks at constructed images and asks if we can change our relationship to them and return to instinct and intuition.”Other ways of knowing” refers to delusional and misleading methods designed to subtly influence choice.Meteorite Hunter Part figure – Meteorite Hunter is an archive that searches for meteorites and their origins.Following the journey of a fictional hunter, Meteorite Hunter documents the artifacts discovered, both overlooked and celebrated in the process, presenting them equally and without distinction.Sometimes, the quest to experience the unique or unusual obscures the familiar and recognizable.The series focuses on finding the extraordinary in everyday life, using meteorites as a metaphor for the wonder hidden in the ordinary.The work is presented as a series of artifacts, only one of which is an actual meteorite.By combining fact and fiction, it encourages people to get involved in the search for meteorites.Using the ambiguity of images makes us reconsider everyday objects, effectively trying to create an environment where the familiar seems unfamiliar.- The editorial department said (on behalf of individuals only) that excellent photographers will have their own creative style, and have their own long-term research and discussion direction.Alexandra Lalesbridge is undoubtedly a mature photographic artist. What she thinks about is the passive changes in our vision in daily life, which is hard to find. Basically, we change by default without realizing it.I mentioned before that photographers should have humanitarian feelings to record the injustice of the world. In fact, photographers can also observe and understand the development of human beings. Naturally, there are photographers who work hard to move bricks for survival.No matter what kind of person you are, photography should be something to pursue, because you already have one more tool to express yourself than anyone else. Why not master it?Message project name, the next issue details about the ALL IN Photography competition public account: the 1st of each month to send the month at home and abroad ALL kinds of photography competition, art gallery, magazine manuscript call information;Every day, I will push the appreciation of the outstanding award-winning works of the photography competition of that month, and keep pace with the outstanding ones.
