Camera Clod

“The Perfect Way is only difficult for those who pick and choose; Do not like, do not dislike; all will then be clear.

Make a hairbreadth difference, and Heaven and Earth are set apart; If you want the truth to stand clear before you, never be for or against.The struggle between ‘for’ and ‘against’ is the mind’s worst disease;”

Jianzhi Sengcan  & Bruce Lee

The quote is used by current advocates of psych-splaining morality; with charts, and drawings of Men in Manchu costume.

It isn’t illustrated using the fighting figure of Bruce Lee, the importer of this mannerism. The path of the Camera Club Clods is to sound the horn without anyone hearing.

Women in Colour : Group Exhibition

26 April – 15 June 2019 at: galerie miranda

If only I could go, but that 4th dimension is still too hard.

Instead, this from the press announcement: Ellen Carey’s original research on the contributions of women photographers in colour/color started with Victorian Anna Atkins (1799-1871, England), who is also a pioneer in colour.  Carey’s thesis highlights the recent scientific discovery of tetrachromacy whereby women who carry this gene have four eye cones instead of three, allowing them to see more colours.  The consequences of this discovery reframe the history of visual arts.  Women in Colour: Anna Atkins, Colour Photography and Those Struck by Light was first exhibited at Rubber Factory gallery (NY) in 2017, the Paris edition brings a European focus with works by fourteen artists: Claire Aho, Merry Alpern, Jo Bradford, Jo Ann Callis, Ellen Carey, Patty Carroll, Elinor Carucci, Susan Derges, Sally Gall, Meghann Riepenhoff, Mariah Robertson, Chloe Sells, Brea Souders, Nancy Wilson-Pajic
