For this new f/50 project Keith and I have investigated the elusive concept of “fluidity”. We started from Webster on-line dictionary definition and we have developed the “interpretation” through three shots each.
FLUIDITY: The quality of being fluid or capable of flowing; a liquid, äeriform, or gaseous; opposed to solidity. “It was this want of organization, this looseness and fluidity of the new movement, that made it penetrate through every class of society” J.R. Green
KEITH’S NOTES: Let’s images talk!
MATTEO’S NOTES: Fluidity is all about change and movement. Freezing this change with a camera is a hard challenge but it’s not impossible. Photography usually doesn’t “play” with movement so I’ve tried to recreate motion looking for contrast. In the first shot, sky-clouds (so fluid they look solid)-buildings-humans; in the second one, a light fog “running” over the water deleting shadows; in the last frame, the illusion of a man swimming in an ad I caught throught a futuristic invisible wall. In all three shots human presence — direct or indirect or even marginal — becomes an important element of the change, probably the most significant in contrast to the others.
