RIP your heart out, dear

“Creez cu telul de a stimula dorinte inconstiente, de a aduce la suprafata emotii intime, ghidate de o dinamica ce balanseaza intre realitate si fantezie”, spune fotografa new-yorkeza Alison Brady despre munca ei.

Fotografia ei suprarealista exploreaza acele zone ale constiintei pe care adesea ne ferim sa le expunem, sa le aducem la suprafata, de teama criticii celor din jur. Alienarea, dementa si singuratatea transanta, asa cum exista de fapt, si nu asa cum ne sunt prezentate in cultura contemporana, fac obiectul imaginilor pline de culoare ale artistei. Concentrandu-se pe expresivitatea anxietatii, a nevrozei si pierderii identitare intr-un ansamblu social care face integrarea tot mai dificila si ne modeleaza personalitatile adesea negativ, Brady transmite un adevar negresit.

Folosindu-se de redarea conflictelor din subconstientul fiecaruia dintre noi in termeni vizuali, fotografa incearca sa creeze dihotomii intre senzualitate si decadenta, frumusete si auto-distrugere, acceptare si auto-ironie.

“Aproape fiecare persoana s-a confruntat cu diverse traume, de mica sau mare intensitate, intr-un punct al vietii sale. Fie ca a fost vorba de un accident sau o ruptura in viata familiala sau sociala, aceste experiente inglobeaza si sunt permanente generatoare ale unor rani profunde”, explica ea. Brady isi relationeaza arta de teoria freudiana potrivit careia un eveniment traumatic tinde sa revina in viata noastra si sa ne urmareasca discret sau furtunos, daca nu a fost solutionat. Punand in cumpana problema pastrarii identitatii in viata sociala contemporana, arta lui Alison Brady incearca sa gaseasca, probabil, raspunsul la eterna intrebare “Ce inseamna, de fapt, normalitatea?”.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to show a pair of panties deliberately designed to show off butt crack without showing any butt crack. It is imperative that we protect the readers of the Victoria’s Secret catalog from seeing butt crack. Failure is not an option. This tape will self-destruct in 5 seconds. Butt crack.

No, let’s make him smile even more! You can do that in Photoshop, just make him smilier. Much smilier. You know how William H. Macy is famous for smiling. He’s a smile machine. Don’t look at me like that, just go back to your desk and do it. Do it now.

The poor Hearst family. First that whole Symbionese Liberation Army thing, now this in Esquire.
