“Splaining” Let’s Go home – Photograph

I am working on an idea that would be  a continuation of the installation I created for the Long Night of the Museum.

As I sat down in the subway car, I tried looking out the window and noticed it was terribly dirty but dirty in a beautiful way so I snapped a photo and there was my self portrait.

“Let’s go home.”  December 2015 by Emmy Horstkamp

I was not in the mood to look at myself especially when it was an unintentional selfie showing a woman who was tired and wanted to go home.  I took another shot and another until I got a shot without anyone looking out the window and without my reflection.

Reflecting on a Friday by Emmy Horstkamp December 2015

 

I fell in love with this composition.

I edited the photo slightly and placed it in my portfolio. It represented for me a moment of time in Munich captured with my iphone 6 plus. It was created because I saw how a dirty window made an interesting composition.

“Splain” is an oversimplified explanation of the process of artists in Munich.  If you want to read about splain, you can read about this new word here.
