The Documentary film directed by Jennifer Bailchwal, Manufactured Landscape was quite and eye opening film in getting a picture of how drastic mankind has altered this world . The photographer for this Film was Edward Burtynsky. Majority of this film was using his giant photography, which was taken by supper 16mm film, utilizing a 4×5 sheet of film. This allows him to have get resolution and print up approximately 50x 60 inches. the film also had video footage of the place that Burtynsky shoot photos at and give insight in to place the were photographed. the documentary film is must she just of the treaty beauty of Burtynky photography if you don’t get the chase them in his exhibit. this film with give much better inform at ion of subject matte, oh how humanity is interacting with the plant environment. i am say any thing about global warming hey the fact the we as all nation of people are in face make impact to planet. from this film and Burtynsky photography will see the vast impact the man has done to natures environment. One of the many ares of topic on the film was discussion China “E waste” which basically consist of take all metal for any product to recycle causing huge amount of toxic waste around them. this problem has lead to unhealthy water supply for the people. with problem arising in china they have began to engineering the largest dame in the world, Three Gorges Dame.

The exhibit at the San Diego Art Institute, was quite immersive of show. this exhibit was a photo contest with over 12,961 entires from 85 country and out off all the photographer 201 photos were selected. after viewing all the photos in the exhibit its hard just to pick one photography that i find the best. i mean there were some many great photo i don’t how the judge for this compassion are going to choose a win. while walking around the exhibit i notice that some found were print on metal and face mounted on plexiglass, which i thought were really different and beautiful. i especially like the photo that were printed on metal because they seem to make the photo color pop more that just paper as well as the faced mounted plexiglass. the different printing aspect this think would give the artist more upper hand in competition because it using some what of different medium of print. i would say my top 5 from the show were most printed on different medium:
Adrina Echavaris – “Soul”David Eckels- “Storm Approaching Moab Utah”
Camille Seamen a Native American Indian, Shinneeok Tribe, located near long island New York found Photography as was to interconnect with nature and humanity. In her TED talks about storm chasing super cell she mention that each person is connected to the environment around you. She use is her unbelievable photography to show how compelling these unbelievable storm are and explains a really deep meaning about how humanity and interconnect to the planet. Seamen explain how there supper storm are representation of how earth was constructed and how human life was from these grand power in the storm.
another amazing works from Camille Seamen, would be here photography of Ice Burg. Seamen work on ice burg are breath taking. Again see explain taking photo of these ice burg as if they were ancestor with great knowledge of life. when you think about how long there ice burg have been around she is absolute true and to capture this form of life as it recycle it power back into earth is as sad as think of them disappearing from this world.
Taking a trip down to the San Diego Museum of Photographic Arts, MOPA, to experiences the exhibit Staking Claims. Staking Claim is an California invitational with 16 photography all based out the Cali. This exhibit feature digital photography but also embrace the original form of photography. after viewing all 16 photographer work, i think my most inspired photographer in the exhibit was John Chiara due to his use of huge hand built camera obscure 5″‘x80″. Chiara made huge print standing inside his home made camera, so when you look at his print you will notice that they don’t have even perfect edges because he cut his print out of the paper in camera obscure. in order to get his print the way he want he use his hand to burn and dodge the light though his lens. Chiara work in exhibit had such high contrast between his drake and light which made his images so compelling. his work was true amazing know that he is using such an old method and such huge camera to make his works of art.
My idea for may final project consisted of putting a book together from all the photos that I have shoot just with in this year and mostly this semester. However, if i come across a photo that i feel is one my strong photos and really shows my skill or something about me I will also use any of those picture because my intention for this book is to a portfolio piece for me to have some tangible to shows my work. my vision for this book is the show not just my photograph skill but also my design skill, utilizing page layout and typography, but the main content will be my photographs. i think for this book i want to be able to put picture in any arrangement from just single photo on a page all the way to a grid. with my book i do know that i will put my picture i choose into group and with in the group i will decide how the present them. i realize that this proposal for my final project doesn’t really have specific focus on a single subject but i am hoping to graduate this semester and this would be a great thing for me to have. also this semester again i am really busy and hart for me to schedule my time and really focus on one specific topic of focus.
