    Re: Sculpture

    Inukshuk figure by artist Qavavau Shaa of Cape Dorset, Nunavut (Linhof Master Kardan GTL 4x5; 210mm Nikkor AM ED macro lens, f32.67, 72 sec; Delta & Provia films)

    Inukshuks were strategically placed on landscapes to help with caribou hunting, to cache food, and for other important purposes. The name “inukshuk” in the Inuit language means “like a man/human.” This sculpture is about 6 inches tall.

    Detail of The Student Body, by Julia Balk, UNC '85
    Wista 45DX, Nikkor 210W, Polaroid Type 52

    The photo is my interpretation of an installation of seven figures depicting various forms of student life at UNC, Chapel Hill. Its original installation caused an uproar based on the claim that it was racist and sexist. Hey, it's UNC, after all...
    Don't some people ever graduate???

    GOD! I love art!

    [Edit:] When I first saw this thread, it looked to me like it was an invitation to post my own photograph of "sculpture", i.e. one of those threads that starts out, "Post Your [Subject Matter]". But I wasn't sure and hesitated as I didn't wish to step on the OP's toes. But it appears that others interpreted it as I did. So I took the leap.

    When I took my first photography class in college, (at UNC, not uncoincidentally), the instructor sternly advised us to not make photographs of sculpture as that was someone else's artwork.
    Well, it did sort of make sense at the time. And especially to my gullible undergraduate self. But I felt, too, a sense of disappointment because it seemed that photographing sculpture could refine and strengthen its impact through interpretation.
    In my present state of mind I couldn't care less what instructors say. (...but in somewhat different words...)

    It is interesting to contrast todays "racists" interpretations of the Tilden sculptor linked to above with an 1895 San Francisco newspaper's interpretation: https://cdnc.ucr.edu/cgi-bin/cdnc?a=...-txIN--------1

    Re: Sculpture

    I should have acknowledged The Joseph Cornell Box

    I knew I was making a photo of my assemblage in a box and my online version needed Color, so Fujiroid was used

    I wish I had photographed my many assembled objet de art since very young

    but LFPF is not an academic scene

    Re: Sculpture

    Reprinted The Bear Hunters and toned to completion (30 minutes) with a gold - ammonium thiocynate toner:


    Next time I print this I'm going to try a gold borax toner for 30 minutes followed by the gold-ammonium thiocynate toner for 30 minutes and see what I end up with.
