365 Collages | Week 29 | Capture the Moment

Today it’s time to celebrate again. I have reached collage number 200 of 365, another great big and wonderful milestone! So let us leave our worries of giving up behind, and continue forward, towards the goal.

Ghost of a Town - Collage no 197 by iHanna - week 29
Ghost of a Town, collage by iHanna.

The theme of these collages can be seen in the vintage illustrations of a few Rollieflex cameras, that made me think of photography and capturing the moment. Being in the moment, while documenting it and so on. I hope you like these collages, with some quotes thrown in for good measure.

You can always hoover over the image to find out what number it is in the 365 project/year. Enjoy.

Those who want to be serious photographers, you’re really going to have to edit your work. You’re going to have to understand what you’re doing. You’re going to have to not just shoot, shoot, shoot. To stop and look at your work is the most important thing you can do.
Annie Leibovitz

I love photography’s power. It lets you reveal beauty in scenes which are often considered ugly or unworthy of attention.

The camera makes you forget you’re there. It’s not like you are hiding but you forget, you are just looking so much.

And here’s number 200 (yay me!):

When that shutter clicks, anything else that can be done afterward is not worth consideration.

When you are younger, the camera is like a friend and you can go places and feel like you’re with someone, like you have a companion.

A vision isn’t just a picture of what could be; it’s an appeal to our better selves.

Now that I look at the collage titles together they should all end with exclamation marks, as they seem to be requests to myself to live in the now (!) while documenting for the future (!)… :-) Or are the mellow poetry on how fast life is passing me by?

Perhaps they reveal some of my travel stress and worries, and are titles that gently try to encourage me to move forward without all those worries inside taking over?

  1. Loving “Remember This”! Thank you for sharing your beautiful creations with us, Hanna!

  2. Oh Hanna! I particularly like this series! I collect vintage cameras and these collages speak to me. And I love the titles. They are simply perfect. Congratulations on reaching 200 and more! I haven’t reached my 100 yet but soon and then I’ll keep going and going until I reach the goal line of 365!

  3. Congratulations on reaching #200! That’s quite an accomplishment. This set is particularly appealing to me because of the vintage cameras, and “Preserve Everything” is my favorite of the bunch. It’s a well-balanced collage and I like how the wood grain of the old door/building works with the black and white pattern on the right. Keep it up!

  4. This series is amazing Hanna! I love seeing (parts of) old black and white photos, torn and glued, showing fragments of what was… you inspire me so to bring out my old ‘history-photo-news-books’ (from the sixties and seventies) and create a collage with the photos… (and isn’t it funny that I get inspired to create right after I promised my beloved that I would help him clean out the last boxes of the ‘move’ and then finish the laminate-floor in the hallway by sawing & putting the last ‘frame-finish-borders’ on. Grrr… have to postpone creative time for later this weekend…)
