Visual Artist Malcolm Alexander (03/10/12) — Photo-Artistry by kenne

“I reject the Puritanical notion that the body is ugly and must be hidden
in clothes to be acceptable. It is said that Rodin gave the body’s beauty
back to the artist. I have come to the recognition that all bodies are beautiful.
I’m only sorry that I’m part of a culture that has caused all women to be ashamed
of some part (if not all parts) of their bodies because they think it is not up to what
someone else dictates it should look like. I want to capture the creative,

sexual spirit that animates all of us. As we are all made in God’s image,
if we are ashamed of our bodies, we are ashamed of God.”

“When given a choice of elements and composition, you may think a laymen might
not know how to choose harmony and an artist would. But most people instinctively
choose the security of harmony. An artist will choose chaos so that one can bring a 
new order and harmony to it. Such has been my life.”

One Of My Early Black And White Photographs   2 comments

Photography in the 20th Century
was all about film photography
Ektachrome was my choice,
however, occasionally I shot in B&W.

“A Rainy Evening” is a B&W
photo taken in 1974, by
definition a vintage image
having been captured before 1980.

I rarely used B&W film
with my first SLR camera,
a Canon FTb QL that I still have.
“A Rainy Evening,” is a print

recently rediscovered,
by Mary Ann, 
inspired
by the lighting and
reflections of the moment.

I have no idea of the settings,
but it is reasonable to say
a very slow shutter speed with

a fairly low f-stop.

I’m not sure anybody cares
just one of many photo
projects taking me
to where I am today.
