Fewer Words…What’s the Point Anyway.

I think, since, 1) I don’t like to hear myself talk (write) with no interaction, and 2) since I don’t blab much anyway…I’m a listener…that I will conserve energy and just show my photos in my blogs.  The most I feel like putting now, may be a title and my Copyright notice.  I feel like I’m just talking to myself.  That’s OK, really, as the Chinese saying (actually) goes, “A picture is worth 10,000 words.”  Just let the photography speak.

About that saying, according to website, gumgum.com:  “A later ad by (Fred R.) Barnard appears in the March 10, 1927 issue with the phrase “One Picture Worth Ten Thousand Words,” which he erroneously credited as being a Chinese proverb so people would take it more seriously. As a result, the expression is also sometimes mistakenly attributed to Confucius.”  (Source: http://www.gumgum.com/2013/02/13/the-origin-of-a-picture-is-worth-a-thousand-words/ )

The LIGHT STREAKS IN ORDERED CHAOS — Vol. 1. A Folio Photography Collection by Nawfal Johnson Nur

The LIGHT STREAKS IN ORDERED CHAOS — Vol. 1. A Folio Photography Collection, is a fine art series of 24 photographs, in a hard cover book by Nawfal Johnson Nur.

Nawfal created the images in this folio, in May 2016. These 24 images are part of a larger collection of art photographs—the ABSTRACT LIGHT STREAKS, which has more than 350 photographs (as of September 2017).

Nawfal began the ABSTRACT LIGHT STREAKS collection in 2015, and images are designed for it regularly. This is “Vol. 1.”, and because he has so many of these art photographs in the collection, the magnitude of this work will likely push him to create further folio publications of this collection. This folio photography collection is a book of light streaks photography, a style of abstract photography Nawfal calls “Fluid Lights Photography” (he also refers to it as “Active Lights Photography”). As the title of this work suggests, the light streaks appear as almost a never-ending swirl of chaos, but when seen thoughtfully, the streaks are actually quite orderly.

LIGHT STREAKS IN ORDERED CHAOS VOL1

PENANG TREES ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONISM FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY EBOOK BY NAWFAL JOHNSON NUR

“Penang Trees – an Abstract Expressionistic Photography Point of View,” by Nawfal Johnson Nur, is a collection of 18 fine art Abstract Expressionism photographs.

This series shows “what else” the trees are – their symbolic meanings based on physical characteristics, which in a larger sense, inspired this project. Nawfal photographed the trees from the viewpoint of a subjective observer wishing to record and design images that exhibit the grand characteristics of trees with their wild and twisting branches and beautiful glowing hues. However, those qualities were just the beginning points to base this series on: Nawfal used those visual cues to design images that more appropriately exemplified his feelings while capturing the photographs. The qualities of having “abundance” and “hope”, are traits that Nawfal believes trees naturally have, and generously give to humankind. This is what Nawfal wanted to show in these abstract images.

BENDING SPACE FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONISM EBOOK BY NAWFAL JOHNSON NUR

BENDING SPACE is an Abstract Expressionistic, Fine Art Photographic view of the idea of “bending space” — as in the events that happen near a black hole, around the Event Horizon.

This is a 25 pages eBook of fine art photography by Nawfal Johnson Nur.

BENDING SPACE

Here is the Sale’s Page Link:

http://www.lulu.com/shop/nawfal-johnson-nur/bending-space/ebook/product-20712958.html#

Description: BENDING SPACE is a collection of 15 Abstract Expressionistic Photographs, which illustrate the idea of bending space. Nawfal pondered what colors and space itself, may look like near a black hole – around the Event Horizon. He also created a photograph (No. 4 in this series) that shows the minuscule ‘bouncy’ strings that represents String Theory. Nawfal Johnson Nur took inspiration from the Cosmological theories that try to explain the very nature of the expansion of space, and used these ideas to design the photography series, BENDING SPACE.

CRACKED, CHIPPED, and ROUGH, is an abstract look at a very mundane subject—old, cracked, chipped, and peeled paint on walls eBook by Nawfal Johnson Nur

CRACKED, CHIPPED, and ROUGH, is an abstract look at a very mundane subject—old, cracked, chipped, and peeled paint on walls.

What is revealed in this abstract photography collection are the macro-details of old painted surfaces. In my eyes, the joy of this type of macro photography is looking at, and seeing, the fine details of cracks in old paint; wondering how the curled ends of paint have lost its adhesive qualities; and, creating the pictorial illusion of texture in the two dimensional image. This may sound weird, but when someone looks at my cracked paint images, I want the rough textures of the paint, and the wall, to reach out and scratch your eyes! Not in a violent sort of way, but I want you so say, “Wow, I can feel the roughness of this scene when I see these images.” The primary effect I wanted to show with these photographs is the illusion of three-dimensional space. CRACKED, CHIPPED, and ROUGH is a collection of 15 black & white, and color images, in 22 pages.

Fire Portraits Series

BELIAL, TRANSMOGRAFICATION #7

“Belial, Transmografication #7” is the newest of my “Fire Portraits Series” photographs, and Number 60 in the series.  I started this series in 2016, after reading Steven Brust’s great novel, “To Reign in Hell“, written in 1984:  DAMN…I can’t believe I didn’t know about this book way back then—Brust published this story the same year I started university.  I was reading many Sci-Fi and mythological stories at that time, mainly, Isaac Asimov, Frank Herbert, Robert Heinlein, Anne Inez McCaffrey, Larry Niven, and Ray Bradbury.   I’m just surprised I had no clue about an author who wrote a really original masterpiece about a war between the angels, and how Satan, Lucifer, Mephistopheles, Lilith, and others, became the “fallen angels”, kicked to the curb, and exiled into the abyss—Hell.

Anyway, Brust’s story was the influence for my Fire Portraits Series.

Belial, is one of the “First-Born” angels, and is a Regent of one of the corners of heaven.

From the illiaster came consciousness that resulted in the firstborn angels: Yaweh, Satan, Michael, Lucifer, Raphael, Leviathan and Belial.  (Source:  To Reign in Hell, Wikipedia).

Belial, half-mad and trapped in the form of a dragon, rules the Northern Regency.  (Source:  To Reign in Hell, Wikipedia).

Whenever I design a new Fire Portraits image, and it looks like a dragon, I will attribute it as a new transmografication of Belial—this is number seven.

To me, this looks like a massive, chaotic battle.  But, I also think it is quite beautiful and orderly, which is a contradiction to the scene of a battle.

Michael, Transmogrification #2, 22 December 2016

Title:  Michael, Transmogrification #2, 22 December 2016

Creation Date: 22 Dec 16.

“Fire Portraits” Series.

Year:  2016.

Influence:  “To Reign in Hell” novel by Steven Brust.

Art Photographs:  Photography of fire shaped into Portrait-like imagery, of the characters, angels, in “To Reign in Hell”, written by Steven Brust.

Note  1:  After doing the first art photo, I said to myself, “I’m seeing some faces from Brust’s novel in this image, and I need to investigate, and work this out further to see what develops.”  Note 2:  One very interesting aspect of Brust’s story is that all of the angels were essentially good until a conflict and deception arose among the angels.  On top of that, the three “evil” angels in the story ( evil according to many ‘modernised’ views…modern being several thousand years for Satan/Lucifer/Devil, and hundreds for Mephisto ) — Satan and Lucifer are the same entity,  and Mephistopheles is the name invented for the historical Johann Georg Faust (c. 1480–c. 1540), and in demonology, Mephistopheles was “one of the seven chief devils and the tempter of Faust”.  Nevertheless, in Brust’s story, Satan and Lucifer are “First-Borns”, and Mephistopheles is an archangel, not devils or demons. Note 3:  My Brust angels are a contradiction because they are made of fire.  Angels of fire, I think is a contradiction.  Note 4:  Michael is a First-Born angel in the Brust story.  He is the greatest warrior and the protector of Yahweh and the Central Region.
