photographers, actors, designers, writers, models, artists, stylists, MUAHs, artistic directors.,.. and others alike
there is the challenge described:
In his absorbing web series http://www.dictionaryofobscuresorrows.com/ , writer and editor #JohnKoenig gives names to deep longings and vague feelings in the form of brief, beautiful videos. Subtitled "For lack of a better world". Koenig tries to create a better world by calling attention to sensations that made you think, "maybe it's just me, but…"
His ' The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows' is a compendium of #InventedWords. Each original word and its definition aims to fill a hole in the language - to give a name to emotions we all might experience but don't yet have a word for.
The author has a ferocious curiosity about the art and science of being human, especially language, mythology, poetry, and the natural world. His dictionary has been acclaimed by New York Magazine, Washington Post Express, author John Green, blogger Jason Kottke, and the guys from Radiolab Podcast. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=26JK_Xw_laQ
we used many of Koenig's amazing words before as the inspirational key words for our magazines in the past.
the next word is
the tendency to give up trying to talk about an experience because people are unable to relate to it—whether through envy or pity or simple foreignness—which allows it to drift away from the rest of your life story, until the memory itself feels out of place, almost mythical, wandering restlessly in the fog, no longer even looking for a place to land.
I want somehow to connect the key word to the theme "LOVED AND UNLOVED, NOURISHED AND NEGLECTED" and focus on women, men and children who are loved, forgotten, unloved, left alone, abused, used, praised, cherished, rejected, mistreated, nourished, repressed, treasured etc etc like two sides of the coin: light and darkness. I hope everyone will feel connected in this or that way to such stories and you will find yourself in many of them. I also hope one day all people will understand each other and words will not be needed for communication and explaining thyself for words pronounced already represent the Lie. The Truth is silent always.
on the best concept / style photograph or set of photographs that will fit into the category "EXULANSIS" with the focus on LOVED-UNLOVED in all its expression: women, men, kids, nature...
