Olimpia by Manet

My class had analyzed two paintings one of which i chose to describe. This painting caught my attention because i felt like it had a lot to do with racism. Although the artist of this painting was not trying to necessarily promote racism this is what i got from this painting. My perspective on this was that the white naked woman was making the black lady cater to her. 

I feel like the woman was relaxing commanding the black lady to bring her luxuries such as food and flowers. The black woman was bringing the white lady things by force is what i feel which is why i feel like this picture represent slavery and racism. Black people being treated bad by white people is how they were treated in the 1800's. this picture also looks like it was taken a very long time ago.

The picture describes the people who are closest to me as of now. Left to right is my sister, myself, my best friend, mother, and father. The reason why i chose this picture was because it was my best friends sweet sixteen which we happen to have the same birthday. I chose this specifically because i feel like when i turned sixteen my life changed dramatically, i transferred schools and my mother went bankrupted. My grandfather had recently gone through a cardiac arrest which made him never be the same after that. The people in this picture have really went through everything that has happen in my life with me.

Miserable RIC student
Breaks through class wishing it would just end
Trying to look glad when in reality I just want to leave
Getting good grades but thinking about a nice autumns eve
Wishing I was in a beach with a book and my family 
Sipping diet coke with my best friend Ashley 
A Rhode Island College student just trying to pass
With a funny laugh and a nice sas

Viewing Me

I feel like both these pictures show vey different sides of me. The first picture of me shows that i get bored easily which is not the message i wanted to deliver. The second picture shows that i can be vey artistic. Im the type of person who finds art in anything so by taking pictures everywhere i hope to deliver that message. I was waking through campus yesterday and noticed how beautiful the snow looked on the trees so i knew i had to capture it with a photo.

Perspective Images

Depending on the many different angles a picture can be taken it can say alot about your personality and what you chose to show the world. I chose this back view of myself because i personally am not so comfortable with my body so i felt as though i could i could still show myself in a discreet but fun way. with y posture you can tell that even though i didn't know when my classmate was taking the picture I am always aware of whats going on.

In the second photo i chose to show my footwear. I chose this photo because i wanted to stay in the theme of discrete and thought it would be a un way to show of my fashion sense. I chose to put discrete images of myself because i want the audience to keep viewing my stuff so they would be interested to find out more of who i am if i continuously upload interesting pictures like this.

Reflection Homework Assignment

A fifth grade teacher wanted to show her students what happens when you put your photo online
Ryan Roderick


While looking at this article it bought me back to my sohomore year in highschool. A classmate of mine had tooken a picture of another cloassmate of mine and compared it side by side with a monkey. Though his situation is different from what happen in the artcile is still had a connection. the photoshopped picture of my classment had went viral all around the school and got the creator suspended.

I showed me that obe little joke can be turned into something bigger than what it actually is.

Assignment 1

How do you use online photography ?

I am very big on social networks. I am also very big on taking pictures and uploading them on social networks. I mostly use instagram to upload pictures of things i like, but when i have to post things about my family i use facebook since i only have people i know. On twitter i also post pictures, but those pictures are more funny then anything else. When i post pictures i like people to know more.
