Fashion is an art form. Photography is an art form. Architecture is an art form. How our society is feeling during a given time period and how we feel about certain issues is reflected in so many different artistic expressions throughout our everyday lives that it almost becomes unnoticeable. But it’s still such a huge part of how we frame our current state of mind.
Last month, Dana Castaldo, aka Aldo—guitarist, lead singer, and creator of rock band Red Light Go—brought one of his songs to the recording studio for a collaborative recording session exclusively for the Avocado Jungle. I took some shots of the occasion.
In the month of March, I decided to be more conscious of the food I put in my body, in hopes of changing my habit of eating processized and otherwise unhealthy foods. I used Facebook as an outlet to hold myself accountable to eating better by publicly announcing my Compassionate Food: Photo Blog for 30 days.
On our recent theme of friendship, here’s a photo from the first ever Avocado Jungle Artist In Residence, Angela Richelle, entitled, “Let’s blow this popsicle stand…”
Just a quick note on something special that’s happening these next few months on the Avocado Jungle. We have the pleasure and honor of having a very talented photographer as our first ever Artist In Residence. Angela Richelle is a photographer, working professional and mother living in Southern California. We’ll have more soon, perhaps even an interview of a decent length. For now I’d like to encourage everyone to see her first work as our Artist In Residence, a chills-inducing shot of her own divorce papers–and a very candid and moving bit of writing to go with it. The photo is entitled, “Dissolution of Marriage.”
I’m a recent divorcee from a marriage of 5 years, now a single mother to a 3 year old daughter, and a woman just trying to heal some emotional wounds.
