Pink vs. Blue.

Korean photographer JeongMee Yoon is famous for his The Pink & Blue Project started in 2005. The main idea of the project concerns the issues of trends and preferences of children and their parents. Yoon takes pictures of children who are obsessed with pink and blue stuff. The project was initiated by Yoon’s daughter who in fact wants to wear pink dresses only. Moreover she is obsessed with pink toys as well. But it turned out that not only Yoon’s daughter had such an obsession. Many children all around the world prefer pink and blue color to others. In fact it doesn’t matter to what community or ethnic group a kid belongs to. This trend is widespread and common for many countries. Why so? Probably it is an influence of advertisements, or pop culture. As the rule children watch the same cartoons and movies, they read the same fairy tales all around the world. Barbies, Hello Kitties, Harry Potter and other cultural artifacts are common and well known to many children regardless their nationalities.

Urban Photography – Revealing the Character of Megalopolises

The culture of big city promotes the development of new types of art which decorate concrete jungles. Each megalopolis has its own unique character which can be best revealed through the art of urban photographer. There are no strict rules of what you should picture; it may be some building, city personage or some minor detail of urban landscape. It is essential to feel the pulse of the city and reflect it in your works.

You can get inspired by the works of the most famous urban photographers. Personally I like the photos of Keegan Gibbs who is most interested in shooting graffiti artists at work. Martha Cooper and her “Subway Art” book are also worth mentioning. Her works became a real discovery in the sphere of subway representation. I recommend also to have a look at the works of Norman Behrendt (his recent project is called “Burning down the House”), Jonas Lara, Edward Nightingale, who focuses mainly on train and subway graffiti, Ian Cox and Alex Fakso.
