Photography as a modern art

Photography as well as any other type of image can be used to communicate.

Before 1930, photography was not considered a type of modern art. It was until the Modern Art museum began to take photographs in that this form of expressing and capturing moments became a type of modern art.

Today photography has become a part of our daily life, from “selfies” to professional photo sessions, photography is a great hit in society. Who would ever thought that something so insignificant like photography would become part of our life. Social media, and hashtags support this idea. Today there is a specific photo to upload daily in an app called instagram the week is divided as follows: #mancruchmonday, #transformationtuesday, #womencrushwednesday, #throwbackthursday, and i can’t recall Friday’s but this activity has definitely become part of our popular culture.


Dreamworlds 3

Women’s bodies are used as eye candy for the male population.

Hegemony and visual representations of women in music videos shape the behavior of society.

We are so surprised and scared to see these images in real life, but why if they are so familiar. Does society shape media, or does media shape society’s behaviors?

Who truly is responsible for these disgusting events?

Really recommend this documentary, it really is an eye opener.

Yesterday you said, Tomorrow!

DON’T! do not, procrastinate! Some people have the privilege of doing so and still managing to have extra time, but procrastination really is the thief of time.

As the semester comes to an end I created a to-do list, and I can’t believe that if i finish the 8 things on my to do list, I finish my semester.

I can’t wait to be done! I am so ready for winter break and Holiday gifts and food.


It’s not until you actually take time, to make time for your priorities that you realize you can be ahead of everyone else!










Selfie -Oxford Dictionary

Say, the world never stops changing and growing, 2013 word of the year is:

Selfie: “A photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media website.” as defined in Oxford Dictionary.

This word has been around for a while but it wasn’t until 2012 that it started appearing in social media and now has become a recognized word by the oxford dictionary.

Everyone has taken a selfie or selfy the way the word is spelled won’t changed its meaning.

If you upload one of these and hash-tag it you will join thousands of people who are already taking selfie shots.

Although our “Word” grammar corrector still does not pick it up as correct and keeps underlining it with a a red squiggly, it is now considered a word in English. 

You might want to consider updating your technology real soon, so that selfie is no longer underlined in red as if it were non-existent or misspelled. 

What do you think of our new addition to our dictionary?

2013 Word of the year: SELFIE

I personally believe that this shouldn’t have happened. Now anyone can randomly make up a word and start using it in social media and networks so it can later appear in the dictionary. Is this all that has to happen in order for our language to expand and create new words? Are we ever going to stop making new words? Who really is to say if this word should be added to our language?

It’s all popular culture and society who have the last word. Image
