"Paths of Mind" – Collection of Fine Art Photographs
The word “mind” does not encapsulate the totality of phenomena and mental capabilities related to perception, affectivity, thought, intuition, judgment, morality, etc. Nevertheless, that is what it refers to.
In philosophy, the mind is opposed to the body, which is more materialistic. This is also known as consciousness, or the soul.
In psychology, the mind is the set of conscious or unconscious mental activities.
But the mind can also describe some intellectual gifts like vivacity, finesse, and humor.
For this collection of artistic photographs, we were inspired by the definition of the mind concerning the mental faculties.
We have always been fascinated by the mechanisms of thought, intelligence, reflection, and intuition. Because of this interest, we created the theme "Around the Mind". In our photographs, we like to give an account of our moods and the emotions we feel when we photograph terrestrial and aquatic nature.
The greater our interest in areas related to emotions, the more we understand the extent of complexity involved in the thinking processes and the experience of different sensations.
Photographic writing has become vital for us to express the entirety of our values, beliefs, and emotions.
But we find that it is both challenging and complicated. We are interested in shapes, colors, and tones. These things are solid. They can be perceived by the senses, whereas the paths of the mind are facetious, and cannot be fully understood or reflected through photography. For years, we have been searching in nature for a scene that can resemble our difficulty in creating artistic works highlighting our values, beliefs, and emotions.
After vast amounts of searching, we finally found an example in a sulfur lake in the United States. It was here that we discovered the inspiration to show the winding paths we take when we create.
All these photographs are natural. We used water, and its reflections and transparency to simulate this network that exists in our mind. It is an interesting connection: the photographs are created by the mind and yet the mind is reflected in the photographs. This is displayed when we create fine art photographs.
We chose horizontal framing because we appreciate the stability it provides. Even though we are great dreamers, we are also deeply rooted in the reality of the world. The variations of the colors reflect the different states of our soul. For example, for the periods where our creativity is at its peak, the colors in the photographs are sparkling. It's an explosion of joy and enthusiasm. And yet, we have periods when we cannot produce anything, terrible moments where doubt clouds our perceptions. These dark periods are also depicted in our photographs.
The art photographs that make up this artistic collection "The Paths of the Spirit" are abstract, although the scenes are natural. This is the only method where we can more accurately represent our minds.
This collection has been entirely thought and created in our "lights and colors" style.
All these fine art photographs meet strict specifications for their realization and certification as we explain in this page. Each of these art prints is a guarantee for you to acquire a durable work that you will never tire of.
