Akhmal Photographs: Contemporary Art

Hello, everyone. Here I am again. 

After going through a lot of challenges these 2 weeks registering, adding, dropping modules for the semester, I can finally say that I have settled down. Phew. It was hectic.

As some of you may already know, I am currently taking 6 modules (1 extra module) to compensate the modular credits loss in my first semester & I was very hyped to start my photography class. Unfortunately, earlier this week we were hit by a bad news. 

It has been cancelled. crey! [UPDATE: yeap, still cancelled]

We were already on our very first assignment, but... what to do.

Nevertheless, since it has been cancelled, I thought maybe I should just share with you my inspiration for last week's photography assignment. 

The more I took photos, the more I recognised my kind of photography. 
Contemporary and interpretive. I am truly not a nature person, so, I don't do much of landscapes.

Enjoy :-)

This photo was actually a mistake shot, but somehow the unintended effect spoke to me. 

That spark to me is a representation of our frame of mind. Mentality. Growth. We started off as a tiny spark, all around us dark and lonely. Progressively that spark in us blooms like a flower and you know yourself as we grow, that spark, that mentality, too grows into a roaring fire. How enormous or intense we want it to be, it's up to us how much we put effort into it, to intensify it and make full use of it, to let the light glow the atmosphere inside out.

This was the very first photo I took. I was inspired with the idea of luxury and wealth. But it took me a lot of time on evaluating which 'view' of the chandelier I thought was the best. Then, that's where the idea kinda kicks in. The idea of perspective. When one exists, different people have different views on one single entity. Simple, is it not?

There is simply a negative implication to this photo. The message is quite literal, in this case. Because this photo I intended to play around with the shadows and the lightings. Quite technical stuff.

I call this piece 'luminosity'. I have been wanting to take this type of photo. I don't know why, I'm so drawn to it. It has that dark, horror or anonymity feel to it. My idea for this is mainly talking about being trapped in an enclosed place, in my case, my depressive mind. Rejection, hopelessness & even, death.

Well, that's all for now. I would be delighted to hear your views on those photos. I hope you like them. Feel free to add a comment. Cheers and have a great weekend!
