Weekly Photo Challenge: Arranged

Weekly Photo Challenge: ARRANGED

to arrange or not to arrange often is the question in photography / to love order or to indulge not controlled occasions; very often photographers make a plan the balance of a picture, they prefer a certain order and avoid to wait like a hunter (Henry Cartier-Bresson) for the perfect moment…

enjoy some arrangements from third parties – kindly sent to my group BLOG IT!

at first by the Italian photographer “Mimmama” / Mimma Matteucci
(click on the pictures to enter the flickr galleries of the photographers)
Mimma Matteucci follows a more traditional style of STILL LIFES arrangements:
1Untitled2Accumulation
secondly examples sent by the German photographer Werner Schnell,
his compositions are near to modern POP ART / Zeitgeist, maybe influenced by Paul Klee (like me, graffiti street art above) or by Josef Albners, Max Bill, Vasarely etc.:

4I like colours.5Eye Hospital
no. 6 by “Heaven’s Gate” (John Dalkin) – no. 7 by “kjatexas” (Ken from Texas)
no. 6 = more focused on graphical efficiency, no. 7 a typical strategy of modern advertising

  23. Intriguing arrangement and variety of letters! Are they randomly placed or do they mean something?

    • PAUL KLEE, Swiss painter, made some landmarks in the history of art with his “FARBTAFELN”; fields with squares in different colors; also Josef Albers, Max Bill or Victor Vasarely made many series. No wonder, that some graffiti artists make some versions too; saw something lioke this even as a toy for school children with moveable letters. This graffiti was found by me during strolling through a little city; it was painted on a little box installed by an electric power company. So we have an arrangement as well the typical situation of a photographer-hunter: he finds, what he did not knew he would find … – as a painter I composed many of those colored squares families …

      frizz-comment:
      We cannot make order to anything around us.
      But at least in our own apartment.
      So interior design is an important thing.
      We like for example the ideas of
      Terence Conran. He wrote some books…
