Starting last week, our community has been on a quest to repicture cliched concepts through the power of pictures.
We’ve asked some of the leading professionals in the creative world to show us what terms such as beauty, love, hero, fatherhood, motherhood, community and others mean to them and this is how they answered.
Angela Tomson - Graphiti
In selecting images for work assignments I have appreciated the marked change in the definition of “beautiful”. Rather than conjuring expectations of a ‘skinny smiling blonde’, the definition has broadened to include all races, sexes, ages, body types – and moments in time.
Vibrant, real imagery is now the mainstream definition of beautiful. Clients value authenticity and capturing singular moments of life’s journey; the joy of a summit, the strength of beating cancer, a candid portrait of everyday life.
Appreciating a beautiful, wondrous moment of diffusing fog manipulated by strands of sunshine.
