Series Description:
These artworks are photo-creations of Nawfal Johnson’s original paintings, and also, image creations from photographs captured of decaying urban walls. “Disorderly-Order”, the name of this series, has two distinct meanings. One, there is a method (Order) to the madness (Disorder) in the execution of these artworks. Two, the artist is taking a “more orderly” painting, or a fragment of an urban wall (photographed), and turing it up-side-down, and inside out, to get to the final photographic art representation. The disorderly from within the work, that is the order of the design built into the photographic artwork. Thus, these are ‘two-steps’ artwork creations—first-step, creating a painting (or photographing an urban still-life of a wall); and then, second-step, taking the original creation and designing a final art photograph.

I actually have many Smoke Art Photography, artworks, and I don’t publish many of them here. I just kind of realized that. That seems really odd to me as I have the website domain, http://smokephotographist.com

I guess because I do a lot of different types of art styles, I get very side-tracked. I am working on one piece, but have five more in the works.

I’ll have to do a better job focusing on my Smoke Photography, and publishing more to this Photo-Blog, which is titled, SMOKEPHOTOGRAPHIST.WORDPRESS.COM What was I thinking to ignore my smoke art photography…

My New Book, Smoke Art, Arthritis and Depression

What does Smoke Art Photography, Arthritis and Depression all have in common?  Well, these are the main topics inside my new book (just published earlier today)!

The description in the photo caption (above) gives a really good indication of my book’s content.

  • My book shows 34 of my smoke art photographs, the Ethereal Dreams & Hope Collection, which includes photos taken between 2007 and June 2011.

Because I have suffered with arthritis for many years, a little over 30 years now, and have coped with long bouts of depression, I wanted this book project to be more than just a book of photographs.  I wanted to mix in words of hope, and together the photos and the words of hope make up this project.

  • I discuss a little about my beginnings with photography.  I also discuss very general details about ankylosing spondylitis, and depression.  I talk about some of my own personal experiences finding out that I have these conditions, and some story about dealing with these medical issue.

Over all, I just want to offer my book as a way to help other people dealing with pain and despair, a way to see things in terms of ‘hope’, and to stress the importance of ‘action’ to make ‘hopes,’ ‘dreams,’ and ‘goals’ to come true.

  • If nothing else comes out of my book, I will be very happy if someone, somewhere, has gotten some reassurance from my words, that things can be better even when living with pain and sadness.  It does not always have to be this way, but much of the effort will be up to you.

Perhaps by reading my book, this can be a small step, at least to see things in terms of ‘hope.’  You may also like seeing my photographs of smoke art – and that would be a real added bonus.

Thank you and take care!
