The New Colossus

A Poem by Emma Lazarus, 1883

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

Sophia is Fine (Art) – @SophiaFine

I wanted to share one of my dearest Twitter supporters and friends, Sophia Fine who is a Fine Arts graduate.  She successfully completed her independent studies in Florence, Italy and was recognized and awarded for her contributions to Literature and Drama. Now she is well-respected in the art-community and is involved in various art shows, solo expositions, and selling her original artwork both in America and overseas.  Click here for more on Sophia and how to contact her online if you are interested in her artwork.

Can You tell us about Your Process.

I came from a Beautiful World, which presented itself to me early in life. Art was always within me, in so many ways, in everything I saw and touched. I feel like a creator of Expressive Beautiful things, as if God Touched me.

Creativity! Yes! Art is a great Gift! I aim to transform my visions and feelings into my Art.

I create happiness. I can’t wait to go to my studio, express myself, and make things happen. Sometimes I pour the Colors on an Empty Canvas and before me I see all the things I had in my mind.

I like to create themes, with enchanted realities, dream-like, and with absurd beauty. But never losing the soul communication with the viewer when jostling together colorful compositions that are as jolly as kitsch Postcards from Heaven!

I like to immerse the viewer in the false immobility of life’s turbulence and to render the animated presence of Joy!

Everyone has a space within them that waits to be filled with new, yet unknown excitement.

Who is Vassilis & What is “The Remote Posing Project”

First of all I want to thank everyone for supporting and subscribing to my Art & Architecture (and misc.) blog.  In less than one year we have gone from 100 visitors a day to nearly 1,000 and growing everyday.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I have met some really interesting people utilizing various social media sites. ¬†Vassilis, aka “Vasvas” has some of the most intense portraits I have ever seen. ¬†The interesting part is that he does his portraits remotely. ¬†Read on to learn about his process and how he creates these¬†intriguing¬†images of people all around the world, many which he has never met in person.

Vasvas, your work is incredible.  Can you tell us about your latest project and how did you get started with this project?

Thank you very much! My project is called “Remote Posing Project”. I post in instagram and Flickr hi contrast and highly detailed portraits. My portraits are extreme close ups of people’s faces in order to get the required detail. After posting some of my photos on instagram, a guy with nickname @Nixxin (Ben Boyd from Mississauga, Ontario) sent me a portrait of him to edit.

The post was very successful and I thought that as my shooting process is very simple (put your iPhone close to your nose and shoot!), I could sent some simple instructions and people from all over the world will send me their photos for editing. The Remote Posing Project (the name sucks!) was born! So far I’ve made the portraits of 19 people from USA to Australia!¬†

Can you explain your artistic process?  Which artists if any are you influenced by?

The summary of my process is that I convert a color photo to a HDR black and white photograph. I use only my iPhone 4 for shooting and editing my portraits. The process was discovered by chance one day I was fooling around with some applications… The result was impressive and I perfected the process. My process enhances extremely the details of the skin making some people think ¬†I shoot with an expensive DSL camera.. But it’s just an iPhone 4 or 4s and good lighting conditions! The comment I usually receive is that although I make people look ugly I capture their soul in my photos. Some others say that I make people look like coal miners, which I think, is true! Also women avoid sending me their faces!!! In my opinion I make some very interesting detailed portraits and that is all…. I don’t have have any influences, I never thought that I will be shooting portraits…. But I’m sure there are some great photographers who made this style of photography before me….

So far beside the people participating in the project, I had the pleasure to cooperate with some great instagrammers like Evren Dede (@evrendede) from Greece with who I made my most popular photo and Serhan Keser (@serhankeser) from Turkey who donated a great face to my collection!

Self Portrait by Vassilis This is my ugly face...! I use this photo for my avatar in Instagram. The original caption is "Vassilis Segos, Marriage Counselor". I try to use humorous or intriguing captions in my photos...."

Self Portrait by Vassilis This is another photo of me, previously unreleased. I posted this in a dating site with no success at all...!

The Monarch – The Wanderer

The Monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus) is a milkweed butterfly (subfamily Danainae), in the family Nymphalidae. It is perhaps the best known of all North American butterflies. Since the 19th century, it has been found in New Zealand, and in Australia since 1871 where it is called the “Wanderer.”

In Europe, it is resident in the Canary Islands, the Azores, and Madeira, and is found as an occasional migrant in Western Europe. Its wings feature an easily recognizable orange and black pattern, with a wingspan of 8.9‚Äď10.2 centimetres (3¬Ĺ‚Äď4 in).

The Viceroy butterfly has a similar size, color, and pattern, but can be distinguished by an extra black stripe across the hind wing. Female Monarchs have darker veins on their wings, and the males have a spot called the “androconium” in the center of each hind wing from which pheromones are released. Males are also slightly larger.
