The ISM Art Prize

Artist: ROSE_K
Rose_K captivated all of us at HQ by wearing her heart on her (ahem) sleeve. With her aura rich in peace and tranquility, she evokes dreams of the kind of hot summer days that seamlessly flow into fervid summer nights. Stirring memories of cycling to meet a lover, arriving sticky with a racing heart, solitary moments of bliss spent sprawled under the protective canopy of treetops, this folio has us longing for the first kiss of the sun's rays. Congratulations Rose_K on breathing a Touch of Fresh Air into the office amidst the throes of winter!
$250 prize!

"I had such an fun day frolicking around naked and barefoot. Even though there were short spurts of sun it was pretty cold and after a day of solid rain the ground was still quite wet. I got pretty dirty and muddy by the end of it, including a few bum slides down mossy logs, but it was all part of the fun and since I'm a bit of a grub it's nothing unusual for me! There is a painted totem tree on the property and it's such a majestic, energy-filled area with lots of very old mossy trees on a huge hill, so I decided to take some snaps around there. It's a beautiful spot in the bush with lots of wildlife - about 100 kangaroos sprinted past me at one point, there was so much noise it got my adrenaline pumping! I also found some treasures on the day and incorporated them into a few of my snaps. I think the folio captures the essence of being in my favourite environment, with some objects I love to collect, quite well."

"She rises up out of a sea of faces and embraces me, embraces me passionately - a thousand eyes, noses, fingers, legs, bottles, windows, purses, saucers, all glaring at us and we in each other's arms oblivious. I sit down beside her and she talks - a flood of talk. Wild consumptive notes of hysteria, perversion, leprosy. I hear not a word because she is beautiful and I love her and now I am happy and willing to die" - Henry Miller.
"From morning to afternoon I could spend an entire day losing myself in the intimate details of the delicious words of Miller. You become both his flame to the one he loves so ferociously, to his very own internal passions. I find the greatest sense of inspiration taking away these poetic suggestions and losing myself entirely to the free form of expression once and for all."

"I had a ball taking the photos and I loved the theme (I shot myself). Halfway through I thought why the hell not, I'm gonna paint myself! That was so much fun, albeit a little messy. Reminder to self: use body paint and not watercolours! I still have faint lines of paint on my stomach! All in all the shoot was so much fun and taught me so many things. I no longer look in the mirror and squint, I show up proud and my selfie game has improved as well."

"I think I really enjoyed to be naked and play with my own body and my sex. I tried to show in my photos that I love the glamourous and to be female extremly. I love the idea to be such a girlie girl I love the pink I love princess story. And I love to be fucking free and terribly female not for men but for me being a woman is a such a great experience and to love to live that. Feck give me the occasion to show we can play with our body and to love ownself through some pictures./j ai trouve ca tres amusant de s exposer nue et de jouer avec sa propre nudite et son sexe. j ai essaye de montrer dans mes photos que j qime l idee du glamour de la feminite poussee a l extreme. J aime l idee d etre tellement une fille j aime le rose. j aime etre libre j aime etre terriblement feminine non pas pour plaire aux hommes mais parce que je suis si bien d etre une fill. et feck m a donne l occasion de montrer qu on peut s amuser avec soi meme et s aimer a travers des images."

If you're going for a day at the beach, never mind about swim togs or sunscreen - but make sure you have the essentials like bubbles, glitter, and best friend with a camera. Marilyn and Robin have the right idea, turning the otherwise tedious task of sunbathing into a performance art. They have a tough audience though, apparently finding the relentless rhythm of the waves more interesting.

"I enjoyed the experience of photographing myself, perhaps because I've always wanted to be a model. I experimented with different spaces, items of clothing and props, and enjoyed this element of creativity. I particularly enjoyed cracking out my ballet shoes which I haven't done for ages. I have always loved dance but am never going to be a ballerina, although these shoes give me a shot of nostalgia, which I love. I used lots of different locations which helped me to experiment with different angles and lighting. I also used mirrors, and tried to get a wide variety of photos."

Jul 22, 2016 Ella_V//"gracile"
"The greenery in my backyard has always casted beautiful shadows, and for this reason I felt it would be the perfect spot to photograph myself. I chose to include an array of different materials of different colours and patterns - using the breeze to create movement with the materials. The sundress I wore at the beginning was silky on the inside and felt soft on my skin. Once I took it off, the breeze coated my body as if it were a form of clothing itself."

"Since I started my world trip, I've learnt so much about myself and the love of my body. I was moved by the view of New Zealand, went into the deepest bushes, got eaten alive by thousands of sandflies (be more careful than I was haha), and realized espeacially when I pictured myself naked, that I'm great. It's exactly like Marilyn said, "being a sex symbol can be so hard". I'm not looking for that, but I like her beauty. Love yourself. The title of my shooting will be "being". I chose to shoot myself in nature to make this project even more natural than it can be. Like Adam and Eve, because we were suppose to be naked all a long."

"I did this shoot outside and it was so fun! I kept freaking out that someone would see me, or my parents would ask what I was doing bringing a huge mirror outside, but it was fine. It all worked and I had a blast!"
