Some did see it this way.
Here's the Passion man may need to go through sometime during the life. To keep faith in the life, in middle of the horror.

I see here both: The Passion of God and the passion of man: a red wave of heat, love or hate that comes and overthrows you.

Beaucoup de paradoxes ici.
Rien n'est si ceci ou si cela, tout semble être un peu de tout, enfin d'après les commentaires.

et c'est tant mieux :)
Je veux plus faire des images qui deviennent en quelque sorte des miroirs pour le spectateur, plutôt que des images qui veulent montrer des vérités telles que je les verrais. Et puis qui voudrait de mes vérités? Et d'ailleurs en ai-je des vérités? J'ai surtout des questions.

tu as raison. moi je vais encore plus loin, ou plutot plus pres, je questionne l'idee meme que l'artiste doive repondre a des questions, trouver des verites ou meme inspirer des questions.
suffit-il de faire des images qui parlent, qui provoquent, de chercher, de trouver, de ne pas trouver, de chercher a nouveau... pour etre un artiste?
tout ca tourne dans ma tete et m'empeche de savourer le simple plaisir de faire des images.

pourquoi d'ailleurs faut-il etre un artiste! quel malheur. je veux seulement faire des images, moi.

(bien sur, c'est seulement moi a ce moment-la. a d'autres, le mot artiste me semble bien doux, avec toute la creatiivite qui va avec. j'y tend, j'y aspire, je ne reve que de ca...)

je me demande si je m'illusionne. a tous les moments.

Fait juste des images, ne te torture pas Hanan.
Si tu as une âme d'artiste (et là ce n'est pas toi qui décide), de l'art en sortira, de toute facon.

je te fais confiance.
j'ai fait une sceance de photo justement il y a deux jours, cela m'a réconcilié un peu avec la "chose"
en fait, le seul fait que je retiens pour le moment c'est que ce que j'aime le plus est le processus de fabrication de l'image.
j'en ai un peu marre de tous les discours, c'est tout.
il faut m'excuser, je succombe souvent a ces decouragements, cela m'arrive, par cycles ;)

Ce qui me botte le plus, c'est ce que je vois (ou pas) alors que j'appuie sur le déclencheur "clic" et c'est là, dans la boite, une fraction de temps et nos réalités qui s'y trouve, pour un laps de temps.
Je travaille très peu après coup, bien que la préparation de la photo peut durer des heures, des jours, parce que je suis très lent, indécis parfois, reviens sur un travail commencé après quelques mois, etc. Il me faut être dans un certain état d'esprit quand je travaille les photos, ou alors je me chauffe avec de la musique avant.

These are beautiful. First, it was like drowning in the light of hope. As intense as this is, maybe stinging and haunting, serious, I take it as drowning in the warmth of blood, that isn't a result of destruction or scathing. This makes me want to embrace myself with touch, again, beautiful. Heart

Thank you for these words.
The red symbolizes many things, blood, love, passion... we can embrace them, we can live for them, but when it turns into a massacre, then we need hope and hope when we see red is very difficult. The history has shown that the people of Norway has managed to get over the passion and keep hope in human being and I'm glad for this as living in hate is like living in hell (I guess).

I prefer the white if you're intentionally referencing Christ's crucifixion. The red looks like "Piss Christ": [link] I realized how odd it is for Western culture to read "hope" in such a distressing pose. I would think "hope" is a stronger pose with shoulders high and head tilted up like a war bonds poster, not one that resembles attack an helplessness. Yet again the Crucifixion defies the nature of contradiction and moves beyond to something deeper.

Nothing about Jesus, or crucifixion, nor any religion, nor anti-religion.

No. It's about hope, not about faith (while it could be too as you've seen it), just about human and yet hope and distress in the same time. Need of hope while in the same time human is deeply hurt. I like the ambiguity, the fact you can't know if you see the person's back with a head up, or the person's front with the head down. The red color brings even more ambiguity. Some will see passion, blood, love... human nature is ambiguous.

I've been working on this while having the mass murder of Oslo, in my mind and heart.
Wishing to be able to hope, while in the same time, feeling the pain for humanity.

I didn't want to mention this directly in the description, as I don't want to use this sad event for making my image, this was just my personal reaction.

Merci Sylvain.

Je sais pour le côté irréel. Je ne pense pas souvent hors de la photo elle-même mais parfois un certain souffle me pousse et me fait mettre de la couleur :D Ici, c'était un malaise, un mélange d'espérance et d'abattement... suite à la fusillade norvégienne et tout le déballage qui suit et qui part dans tous les sens, du plus ignoble au plus humaniste. Je ne sais pas si tu as remarqué, mais il est difficile de dire si la tête est haute vers le ciel ou baissée, si la personne est de dos ou de face...
