Charlotte Cotton: Something and Nothing (part 1)

In The Photograph as Contemporary Art (1) Charlotte Cotton includes a chapter that investigates the strategy of using inanimate objects or environments as a metaphor. In practice this chapter considers contemporary still life photography rather more than human altered landscapes without human presence but it acts as a general introduction to the subject of the absence and the signs of life. 1,993 more words

Cine y Moda: Paris, Texas (1984)

Paris, Texas (1984) es un film dirigido por el director alemán Wim Wenders, la cual tiene escenas espectaculares en cuanto a moda y escenografía se refieren, la escena icónica y atmosférica del teléfono en la cual Jane (Nastassja Kinski) aparece con un traje rojo mirando de frente es inolvidable, que a mi criterio ella lleva puesto un traje rosa fuerte o hot pink, muchos dicen que es un traje rojo, pero al parecer no lo es, porque si lo comparamos con el teléfono que aparece en escena, la cual es rojo, podemos notar la diferencia. 99 more words

Venice Film Review: 'The Beautiful Days of Aranjuez'

After 90 minutes of dense, ceaseless conversation on a largely unnavigable sequence of topics from first sexual experiences to the cultivation of wild gooseberries, the last thing any viewer really wants to hear is, “We have been here in vain.” Yet the line is stated twice in the closing stages of Wim Wenders’ prettily sunlit but otherwise insufferable 3D talkfest “The Beautiful Days of Aranjuez,” and even without it, it’d be hard to shake the sense of shaggy-dog inconsequentiality from proceedings. 850 more words
