Serenity in Spain, Moments in Madrid
By Lillian Marsh
These photos consist of rural locations in both Spain and Portugal. The first photograph is of the famous Alhambra palace in Granada, Spain. The warm, earthy neutrals of the Spanish architecture contrasted with the faded, vast sky makes for a cohesive gallery of calm and tranquility.
Moons and Museums
By Mars Quiboloy
Select images taken at the Modern Museum of Art in New York City. This collection of photographs is the embodiment of expression, boldness, and rebellious nature, as well as peace and positivity.
By Natalia Orlowski
This limited collection cleverly and skillfully combines aspects of a modern metropolis museum and the free spirit of the wilderness. The high-quality nature photos provide an aura of quiet and focus, created by the negative space and warm colors. The images shot at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC display works of art and architecture to show the grandeur of city leisure. Natalia hopes to learn more techniques and is planning to pursue photography as a future career. Taken on a Canon EOS Rebel Sl2.
I’m currently 15 in high school, aside of photography I am mainly based as a performing artist (dancing, theatre, music), I started photography when I was 14 because one of my friends did it and I really looked up to her and thought it was super cool so I decided to try it out for myself, I grew with it really well and it was drawing a lot of attention. When I was younger I always knew I had a big art side in me but I am just horrible at hands-on visual arts like drawing and painting, and I’m really glad I could find a passion in photography. As I know I lack lots of things in my art, I know that I have lots of room to keep growing and improving. Aside from growing myself, I try to advocate for other artists to grow.
When the Golden Globe Nominees were announced this month, many took to the internet to express their outrage at the disappointing ‘snubs’ and the outrageous nominations. A common theme that most found in the nominations was that many excellent BIPOC-led movies and TV shows were ignored or not given enough attention, while mediocre white-led ones were nominated instead. Among the 40 acting nominees for TV, only two Black actors were nominated, while only two Black women were nominated across all TV and film categories. Perhaps the most shocking of the nominations was the fact that ‘I May Destroy You’, a Black-led TV show that blew up last year and explored sexual assault in a helpful and deep way, was completely ignored by the Golden Globes, while ‘Emily in Paris’, an overdone chick flick, was nominated for two awards. This is, of course, not a new phenomenon – just a few years ago, the Oscars were criticized for not having sufficiently diverse nominations, with the hashtag #OscarsSoWhite trending. But why is it so common for excellent works of art by Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) to be ignored, while mediocre projects by white artists are excessively celebrated?
