Call of the Wild

Photograph by Linda Porter, National Geographic Your Shot

A lioness roars a warning to her cubs in Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve. “She was perched on a hill right on the side of the dirt road,” writes Your Shot member Linda Porter, who captured the picture on an evening game drive. On an opposite hill were three young male lions, which sometimes kill cubs. “Our guide knew this lioness had three young cubs that were were out of sight and hidden. We observed her for over an hour as she continued to call out to her cubs, warning them of the potential danger that lurked across the way. Unlike most of our children, these cubs were extremely obedient and remained hidden.”

Porter’s picture recently appeared in Your Shot’s Daily Dozen.

Bordalo II

with one comment

Artur Bordalo, de nome próprio, é Bordalo II, o nome artístico. Tem 26 anos e já expôs no Centro Cultural de Belém (CCB). Resolveu seguir os passos do avô – Real Bordalo, pintor português do século XX – e estudou Pintura na Faculdade de Belas-Artes, em Lisboa. Contudo, Bordalo II deu início à sua actividade artística nas ruas.

Foi talvez por ter dado os primeiros passos como artista nas ruas que o seu trabalho possui uma grande vertente urbana e cosmopolita. A exposição que esteve patente no início do ano no CCB – “World Gone Crazy” contou com dez trabalhos de Bordalo II, feitos com materiais retirados do lixo que espelham as temáticas do consumismo, desperdício e materialismo exacerbado.

Num dos seus trabalhos mais recentes, Artur Bordalo utilizou as linhas ferroviárias como tela. As obras estão espalhadas por várias linhas de Portugal e é à volta dos carris que o artista cria o seu trabalho. Linhas com mensagens subliminares ou carris que se transformam em partituras são apenas alguns dos exemplos da forma como Bordalo II cria as suas obras sobre as linhas férreas.

Depois de criar arte urbana nas linhas ferroviárias portuguesas, Bordalo II resolveu converter agora os montes de lixo de Lisboa em animais. Para tal, este artista plástico português percorre as ruas da capital em busca de montes de detritos. Posteriormente, Bordalo rearranja o lixo à sua maneira e pinta-os como se animais fossem. O resultado é uma selva imaginária repleta de papagaios gigantes, crocodilos e joaninhas nos locais menos expectáveis.

“What I Be Project“

with one comment

What I Be is a photo project which focuses on building security through insecurities.

The “What I Be Project” is a social experiment turned into, what is now, a global movement about honesty and empowerment. In today’s society, we are often told to look or act a certain way. If we differ from these “standards,” we are often judged, ridiculed, bullied and sometimes even killed over them. I started this project in hopes to open up the lines of communication, and to help everyone accept diversity with an open mind & heart and empower those who feel they suffer for something they may see as a flaw.

Subjects are putting their insecurities out in the open, and exposing a side of themselves that nobody has seen before. By stating “I am not my_____,” they are claiming that they do in fact struggle with these issues, but it does not define who they are as a person. They are not denying their insecurity, they are owning it. It is not aimed for people to say “You’re not fat,” or “You don’t have love handles.” It is to spread awareness on what people go through due to society’s paved roads. These are serious issues that some of us can live with, but most battle on a day to day basis.

I encourage every viewer to look at each image and put yourself in the individuals shoes. By allowing yourself to feel what they feel, you might realize something you’ve never noticed before. If you don’t understand someone’s message, stay tuned. To eliminate any confusion, each participant will be writing a 500 word or less statement explaining how their insecurity has affected their life.

Some of the faces you may recognize, some you may not. Take the time to connect with each one. You may see yourself within one of the photos.
