Clarity Haynes a Brooklyn-based painter, focuses on non-traditional images and ideas of womanhood, beauty, sexuality and gender expression.
‘The Breast Portrait Project’ also explores illness, aging, mortality and the shifting nature of the body. Clarity explains: “I am interested in the many ways the body changes throughout a lifetime, and in the ways in which we create and change our bodies”.
Lightroom Before and After #4 - World Book Day
As it is world book day today, I thought I would do one more before and after of one of my favourite photographs that I have taken recently.
The key here was to bring back the detail in the pages. Minimizing the highlights and exposure, thus brought back the magic of the written word, especially the page caught by a gust of wind.
The sepia tone really rings well with the subject. However notice it is through the involvement of split toning. The highlights appear a sepia tone through a light orange colour, however the backgrounds and shadows have a cooler appearance thanks to a dark blue.
Nous sommes au bord du vide,
Ficelés dans nos paquets de viande,
A regarder passer les révolutions
N’oubliez jamais que ce qu’il y a d’encombrant dans la Morale,
C’est que c’est toujours la Morale des autres.
Les plus beaux chants sont des chants de revendications
Le vers doit faire l’amour dans la tête des populations.
