40 Must-See Photos From The Past

It’s a simple notion that applies to many aspects of our lives, but especially to historical photography.

Once taken simply to document their present, they now help us witness the past. 40 Of The Most Powerful Photographs Ever Taken.

A photograph is just a way to show or represent that beauty. Here is a bunch of some wonderful pictures which are not only the example of beautiful photography but are also a photograph of some miracles happening in the world. You can also call it the creativity and innovation of photographer’s mind. I think it was at the peak while taking these pictures. Some photographs are just the example of wonder created by God. Some are really very cute and heart touching. Where Children Sleep: A Diverse World of Homes. When photographer James Mollison was asked to do a project on children’s rights, he found himself thinking back to his childhood bedroom and the deep importance it played in his upbringing.

Where Children Sleep: A Diverse World of Homes

Taking that idea with him around the world, he photographed a diverse cross section of children and the bedrooms they call home. His moving images remove the children from their home environment, showing them before a neutral background that mostly hides their economic status as if to say “kids are just kids.” Only when their bedroom is observed, however, does the full scope of their living situation become poiniently clear.

Quizá, entre las emociones que el ser humano puede sentir, ninguna tan atávica como el miedo, ninguna tan profunda, tan enraizada en nuestra historia más antigua, lo mismo como individuos que como especie.

Arquetipos modernos del horror: terroríficos montajes de Joshua Hoffine (FOTOS

Sin embargo, con el desarrollo de la cultura las manifestaciones del miedo también se han modificado, pasando de elementos primitivos y en su mayor parte relacionados con la naturaleza, a formas mucho más refinadas y en relación con aspectos de muy diversa índole. Así, por poner un ejemplo, el llamado “temor pánico”, en evidente relación con las potencias indómitas del mundo natural condensadas en el dios Pan, se ha convertido y multiplicado en una profusión de reflejos que recalan a veces en las entidades menos esperadas. Una atractiva síntesis de esta transformación contemporánea del horror se encuentra en la labor fotográfica del estadounidense Joshua Hoffine, quien ha destacado en el montaje de elaboradas escenas que buscan conceptualizar estos arquetipos contemporáneos del miedo.
