The Arctic Henge in Iceland
이날 일정의 목표는 이 헨지를 보는 것이었다. 날이 맑지 않아서 큰 기대는 하지 말아야지 하며 도착한 헨지. 날이 워낙 흐려서 기대했다면 실망했을 것 같긴 하지만, 가길 잘 했다는 정도의 풍경이긴 했다. 이런 조형물은 드라마틱한 구름이 함께 담기거나, 푸르스름한 달빛이 함께하면 좋을 텐데... 아쉽지만 보정으로나마 그 풍경을 최대한 살려봤다.

Love how the reflections intersect with the photos. "GEISHA INK tells the intoxicating story of Ginzilla, revealing and subverting female archetypes through a visual exploration of sexuality, taboos, eroticism & culture.
Our depicted heroine was born into a traditional family of uncompromising strict conservative values. The effect was suffocating to her wild heart, engendering acts of rebellion perhaps most visible as the arresting marks of defiance, written in permanent ink on the canvas of her body. These images tell the story of her life; illustrations of tigers, wolves, and dragons contrast societal expectations of female submission and obedience. Ginzilla’s first lover was a tattoo artist, a predilection which has guided her sexual journey. All of her body-art was composed and executed by lovers, compounding its personal meaning to her, while providing a veritable map of her life. She is presented for the viewer’s meditative contemplation as a symbol of strength, defiance, and unapologetic female desire; her body on display for worship, the tattoos adorning it, as if prayer beads of a rosary." #biennaledivenezia#labiennale#venice#venise#venezia#contemporaryart#biennale2017#palazzomora#biennale#geishaink#rekanyari#photography#geisha#tatoo

PS: Pic 6: "There are two types of people in the world, the ones who like posing for the camera, and the ones who dont."
Another Deadly Sin. "And – there they perch, the „Seven cardinal sins“. Embryonic incarnations of human sin, made of the earth and fired, patinated to timelessness, like graphic theatrical figures on an allegorical world stage. These disembodied, stunted mutants are like caricatures of biblical allegories. Shameless in demeanour, they grimace wickedly from distorted faces. Moreover, „the Seven“ are standing in front of a heap of rubble; totally chaotic ruins of architecture and nature. Rocks form strange contours, the light is barred. It is a doomsday metaphor for fallen values, a dramatic artwork reflecting the grotesque sinners." (Part 2)

First thing you learn when studying History of Art is that you cannot say "it is ugly". You have to say "I do not like it" instead.
Well... Errrrr.... Ahum... Soooo these are The Seven Cardinal Sins by Hans-Ruedi Wüthrich. "These have formed christian moral values since the Middle Ages. From the time of Pope Gregory I they have been regarded as the roots of sin: „Pride, avarice, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath and sloth“. However, in our time the world has opened itself up to a new philosophy of life. Everything is possible, anything goes, long live hedonistic individualism. The lines drawn between right and wrong have become blurred and the former seven deadly sins have become accepted behaviour in our liberal, global world. Greed, ambition, power, aggression, omnipresent erotic and ruthlessness have become the new virtues…“greed is great“. Cooperation, sympathy, consideration and respect are losing their meaning." (Part 1)
Sundarbans - the world’s largest mangrove forest is among the top reasons many people visit Bangladesh.
Famous for its swimming (and man eating) tigers, we didn’t spot any of its illusive striped and hungry cats - perhaps for the better!
In fact, conservationists and researchers still are unable to put a number on how many tigers are left in the Sundarbans.
But one thing’s for sure - spotting a tiger in this part of the world not only takes a huge amount of luck, but time, patience and respect too. Many boat trips come to the Sundarbans for 2-3 days, but to stand a chance seeing rarer wildlife, 1 week plus is recommended.
Tigers aside, there’s an abundance of wildlife to be seen here, as well as the gentle pace of life on the river 🙏
