Social Consciousness


Click above / Oprima arriba

Here is a group of pictures that would help, some of us, to reflect on the times we live. These are details of a sculpture by Jacob Epstein called Social Consciousness. The sculpture sit at the back of the Philadelphia Art Museum. It is interesting to note that as of this date, this sculpture is not listed as one of his selected works in the Wikipedia entry. I believe is one of his most compelling works.

I made a series of photographs of the sculpture, from different angles, trying to isolate the most striking features of the work. I will go back, someday, to keep finding different angles. This is a work to explore.

Social Consciousness.

Hazy sunset…

No, no mistakes, bad exposure, or wrong white balance on this picture. The way you see it above, is the way it really was. The day was so hot and humid, so hazy, that it was almost perfect for taking sunset pictures. Too much haze though, as you can see in the picture.
