Voglio raccontarvi una storia: C'era una volta...no! C'è una donna che vive in due mondi. Due mondi tanto distanti, eppure contigui. Una contraddizione, direte voi, ebbene...no. Sono così vicini che, la donna, vi può accedere agilmente. Questi mondi non sono mondi fisici, anche se così, a volte, o molto spesso, appaion… Read more

Voglio raccontarvi una storia: C'era una volta...no! C'è una donna che vive in due mondi. Due mondi tanto distanti, eppure contigui. Una contraddizione, direte voi, ebbene...no. Sono così vicini che, la donna, vi può accedere agilmente. Questi mondi non sono mondi fisici, anche se così, a volte, o molto spesso, appaiono. Li possiamo definire, astrattamente, moti dell'anima. Ma come in tutte le storie che si rispettano, bisogna descrivere questi due mondi. E' difficile descriverli in poco tempo e in uno spazio limitato, ma siccome ho citato, involontariamente, questi due mondi, risulterà più facile farlo. Lo spazio. E' un area incostante che, nella sua mutevolezza, è ripetitiva. La donna se ne serve, per imprigionare il mondo "reale". Ci staziona per lunghi periodi, intervallati da fughe repentine, verso "l'altro" mondo: il tempo. Quello che verrà e quello che è stato. Qui, nel tempo, la donna, cerca e ri-trova, quell'essenza che è, l'essenza di "se", di quel "IO" che stentiamo a mantenere, che, in ragione delle nostre fragilità, scivola via. Ma quella donna ama quella parte del mondo, ci si riconosce, non vuole rinunciarci, e allora, spingendo via i veli che la separano da quella dimensione, "finge", ingannando lo spazio, di essere una forma fisica. Dice: sono qui', mi puoi vedere, riconoscere. Però, ogni volta che "materializza" la forma, opera un tradimento proprio a danno del mondo amato, e così vive nella costante volontà di fuga. Un grafico sicuramente illustrerebbe meglio i tracciati di queste fughe, ne svelerebbe le destinazioni, eppure a scorrere l'album dei "ricordi", di questa donna, si può avere chiara la sua preferenza e i percorsi che lei intraprende per tornare, in fondo, sempre nello stesso posto: il suo tempo che, purtroppo, non corrisponde al suo spazio. Allora emerge un dolore, un disagio, una melanconia che, spesso, si cela dietro un sorriso di bambina.

Michelle Brea is my ideal in photography. It is by looking at its photographs that J `had envi to register me on Flickr. Since the beginning I traverse her gallery. Rare are my comments because often I do not have the words to say what I feel. Moreover I speak English very badly. These photographs are strong. Michelle photographs the species of the things, the heart of people, the colour of our world. These photographs in black and white remain forever printed in the spirit. She is for me one of largest of Flickr.

Cautivantes, majestuosas, penetrantes, dramáticas, extemportáneas, románticas, tortuosas, femeninas, dramáticas, antropológicas, todo eso a un mismo tiempo y más son las fotos de Michelle; sólo por citar algo de todo lo que inspiran.

Cautivantes, majestuosas, penetrantes, dramáticas, extemportáneas, románticas, tortuosas, femeninas, dramáticas, antropológicas, todo eso a un mismo tiempo y más son las fotos de Michelle; sólo por citar algo de todo lo que inspiran. Su arte destila belleza. Contemplar sus imágenes me hace pensar en una dama real, con una mirada singular del mundo, bella, que destila femeneidad.

Mitch!! You are a Scorpio...I am a Libra, besides both of us, maybe some others might know how different we ...should...be!

Mitch!! You are a Scorpio...I am a Libra, besides both of us, maybe some others might know how different we ...should...be! But..I feel and think that we are very similar, we both see life with great optimism and can be extremely positive...and we also have our dark side...well, only dark when it is among the shadows of some pessimistic feeling....we both love to capture the world with our cameras, we like shoes (I have some more...LOL ;) we take self-portraits as we can not "kill" ourselves...we have daughters...oh and I could go on, and on! But all this started with me wanting to say that I love you, you are a great friend, supportive, kind, obviously fair...and I thank you so much for your friendship!

If you read Michele's profile the first thing you'll notice is that she does not seem to be a shy coy little girl. When you look at her pictures the first thing you'll notice is that here is a strong creative and intelligent woman. She shares not only her intimate emotions, but also her intellectualization and philosophical musings to accompany her images. She notes that she is a writer. I have not read any of her work since it seems to be all in Spanish. If her photography reflects her writing it must be very good. I suggest visiting this photo stream on a daily basis. The range of emotions, feelings, thoughts, etc. will astound you. I can guarantee that you will find pictures that resonate with your own inner musings and awaken hidden thoughts.

In Michelle I see a photographer with passion, vision and a lack of fear that allows her to express emotions and idea in a way that can sometimes be painful and others soothing. With a little nurturing I see a bright photographic future ahead.

I really have to say that over the past few months since I first cane onto Flickr I have been astounded at the originality and creativity of my fellow members - Its all About Mich is the perfect example of this. Everyday there seems to be new creation on life which springs out of the imagination of this very talented person - it's almost like watching a daily soap opera of life as new ideas are born - an endless mind of ideas and wonderful photographic style - it has been a pleasure to comment on many of these and to receive very positive comments back on my own work. Simply a wonderful creative photographer and storyteller - thanks for inspiring many of us out there. XX
