Photo Observation

Photo by Stephen Criscolo

Surreal

This photo is surreal because of the strange colors and positioning of the light.  The woman is standing in a light surrounded by darkness that reminds me of the deep ocean.  Though she is firmly on land, the way she is positioned in relation to the sea life above her seems to place her below them in deep water.

4-Corner Path Statue

  1. Location: March 6, 2017 at 11:15 near Spiegel Theater
  2. Objective: In the center of a crossroad is a twisted, melted onyx statue. On all 4 corner there are lamp posts that shine around the statue, but not directly onto it.
  3. Subjective: This represents the not only the directions of north, south, east and west, but also the different directions that you take in life. There is never a clear answer, as each road leads to this unformed thing at the center. While there is a grotesqueness about this unknown entity, there is also a beauty about not knowing what is going to happen.

The Eye of Peer Gynt

Surreal light diagram

Source: Me from April 8, 2016 at the New Academics Black Box Theater

Theme: Surreal

Description: This photo is the set from the premiere of Peer Gynt. In the center is an eye-shaped structure that has two spiraling staircases on each side. What this eye represented was the spiral that Peer Gynt’s life is as he both experiences being an outcast and interacting with trolls to being a successful businessman and aging. It goes into the personal infinity of Peer Gynt’s rebelliousness and ambition over personal connection.

  3. I thought this photo was very interesting when i first saw it. I almost get a sense that the man in this photo is walking to heaven. I also really love how the light is shining through the clouds and really gives this picture a magnificent feeling.

  1. This lighting is surreal because it washes the woman in the unnatural colors of cyan and red. The majority of her hair and body is lit up red, making her look suspicious, sexy, and dangerous. The cyan light adds a mysterious, isolating feeling and looks like a cold shiver all the way up the side of her body and on her face. Overall, the lighting leaves the woman’s personality and emotion a mystery, but it certainly makes her seem bold and important.

4.I picked this photo to fit the theme of surreal because it is unusual and is a bizarre twist on a seemingly normal picture of jellyfish. This photo spoke to me most because it reminded me of a trip I took to the aquarium in South Carolina. When I was 14 I took a bunch of pictures of the different kinds of jellyfish and each tank was lit completely different from each other. the lighting of this particular jellyfish species reminded me of how these jellyfish were lit at the aquarium; with faint blue light that makes it seem like they’re electrified and if you touch them you’ll get shocked. What makes this photo surreal is the fact that there is a woman in a dress whose legs have turned into the tentacles of a jellyfish.

  3. This picture caught my attention because it is surreal to me that a women would be using a dog as perfume. Also the size of the dog also seems to be unusually small. I like how it looks like the spray coming out from the dog is a light source hitting her cheek. There is also light hitting her neck, shoulder, and knuckles but to me there seems to be an emphasis on her chin.

  3. I chose this photo because I think it really demonstrates surrealism. Things that contradict the conscious mind. Its the connection between dream like and conscious. To me this photo perfectly demonstrates that. I also enjoy the colors used in the photo because its such a contrast between this guy with his body open and the landscape behind him.

  1. I found this photo on Pintrest
  2. Theme: Surreal
  3. i love this picture because it reminds me of Dali and his work with time. Time is a fickle thing and i felt that Dali embodied that in all of his work. This is a tribute to him and the dream-like images that embodies surrealist work.

4. The light source is levitating in the middle of the woods and hitting the thin trees with a warm yellow glow. It is strangely emitting light from every direction, even to the trees that stand behind it. It makes me wonder where the light came from and what it wants.
