I’m going to try to follow along with #PHONARÂ (Photography and Narrative), a “free and open undergraduate class”.
I will be posting projects here on my blog and making use of my flickr account again. I also had to set up a SoundCloud account, and will need to use my Vimeo account.
So, this is a head’s up you may be seeing some “student work” showing up here in the next few months.
Phonar Creative Workshop Task 1:
Completion date: 13th October 2011 (first session back)
Garner a portfolio of 8-10 images from different photographers whose work inspires you. Choose carefully, as though your edit was going to appear as a spread in a printed magazine, you may choose to lay them out as such if you wish, with attention to scale, pace and flow etc.
The portfolio must directly address a theme of your choosing â€“ it could be a personal theme or a topical one, the choice is yours.
There are many ways to understand Satanism as a philosophy, many tacs to take when discussing it. From literary or artistic to philosophical or religious.
Satanism proper isÂ relevantÂ in a Christian dominated society, but the philosophy behind it is universal. Outside of a Christian society, it would probably need to be called something else (unless there’s enough Christian influence that it is still a sort of exoticism). Changing the label doesn’t change the underlying content, though it can change how people view that content.
But while on vacation I ran across this little book: Â “The Joy of Womanhood: The Keepers of the Home Series” by Keepers of the Faith.
It seems to be a sort of workbook for Christian women to work out how they are fallen creatures by answering leading questions. I couldn’t bring myself to buy it, but when I saw one of the questions I had to at least snap a photo of it and post here.
“When you look at all the things in the world (And we know that the things of the world belong to Satan.) such as posessions, education, fame or fortune, what are some of the things you desire?”
Here. This is one of the angles, where I say “Yes, you’re right Christling, it is the Lord of This Earth that I pay tribute to. I enjoy my posessions, education, and fortune (though this latter thing is only on a theoretical level) and I want the same for my wife. You continue to reject these things, keep your kids home from school, don’t buy them anything, and continue to let them know they are nobody and will never amount to nothing.
