2022 32 Night Photography 1069 marco ciavolino post

Shadows of a Racist Past

"New Georgia Theatre- Built at a cost of $75,000 for Negro patronage." So reads the accompanying newspaper article. I took a photo of this building on Thanksgiving Day in the US and then ghosted a photo from 1958 of people waiting to get into the theatre. Macon, Georgia, had segregated theatres well into the 1960's which is hard to believe. See more below and my unusual behind the scenes technique.

Behind the Scenes

To try to match the photo (which was still hard) and created a small version with key lines red and taped it to my preview screen.

A tenet of our 52Frames project, is to embrace imperfection. This week, we ask you to seek this beautiful imperfection in the world around you for Wabi Sabi Photography - derived from a Japanese concept that centers around acceptance of imperfection and impermanence, 侘寂 . To embrace wabi-sabi in everyday life is to slow down, observe, notice and appreciate the overlooked beauty of a reality that is, in so many ways, mundane and imperfect. In our photography, we can start by getting closer to the shapes, colours, textures and patterns all around us. Stains on an old kitchen pot. Rust on a weathered gate. Muddy footprints on a wet pavement. Wrinkles on a familiar face. Withered branches under a winter sky. Can you look at things like these in much the same way as a glamorous studio posed portrait or a super HDR landscape image? This challenge more than others is about story-telling and appreciation of things that we'd usually not cast a second glance at. So, keep calm, slow down and share with us something that evokes this sense of appreciation. Wabi-sabi is about the minor and the hidden, the tentative and the ephemeral: things so subtle and evanescent they are invisible to vulgar eyes. – Leonard Koren, Wabi-Sabi for Artists, Designers, Poets and Philosophers.
