Till Life

play this essay

 

This series is inspired by the skyscapes of William Eggleston. I wanted to capture the still, vast blue hues of the skies and the seas (as the sky’s reflection). Whilst imagining the serenity of capturing such a minimalistic subject, I noticed the images would often be disturbed by various events. Birds flying through, a plane cruising over or the sun, demanding all attention by beaming its rays directly in my lens. I became fascinated by these disturbances and pretty soon they became the subject of this series. The intruders of the still life, became part of the other wordly skyscapes.

Sit Silently

play this essay

 

The series “Sit Silently” examines the signs of time in the rites of subcultures surrounding the capital of Latvia, Riga. It captures the places where “modern Europe” meets the elements of the Soviet times, which conflict and overlap at the same time, while appearing creatively in interiors, exteriors, portraits and still-lives depicting the everyday and the leisurely pastimes. The pictures also capture author’s searches for a slower time zone with more vivid and more open expressions, as well as the sense of home and specific creativity of daily routines beyond the downtown.
The series is also an author’s journey of recreation – escaping from the “focus” and looking for her own (Latvian) identity or core, admiring peripheral moments with their own significance, values and feeling. If, for example, one looks from the East, Kengarags is periphery of Riga, Latgale is the periphery of Latvia, and Latvia is the periphery of Europe.
The series’ title is an abbreviation of a piece from “Google Poetics” and consists of phrases that are popularly searched on the internet and are associated with sitting: “Sit silently /sit silently doing nothing / we sit silently and watch the world / we sit silently and watch.”
This reminds of a passage from Franz Kafka: “You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet, still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.”

David Alan Harvey Rio 2015 Workshop, Student Slideshow

 

This is the work of my 11 students this month in Rio de Janeiro. You are seeing 11 different stories or essays all shot in 4-5 days of real time. Each student comes up with their own idea or theme. These themes can be journalistic or abstract and subjective. The whole point is to get photographers started into seeing photographs woven together as essays. All of them are beginnings of thinking. Something that can be taken further later on.

Some are exercises in thinking and some are projects ready to be taken further. My job is to inspire, to coach, and to help mostly to have those I mentor to start thinking in a non linear way.

In this particular workshop we had a very unusual situation where I was also shooting my own essay, BeachGames. This added an additional spark as we were all putting pictures up on the classroom wall each day. Needless to say, we bonded in a very special way. We had some great times together all around..A time never to be forgotten.

We put this show together for a live audience in Rio in just a few hours from the time the last picture was taken. Enjoy.
