    because we re still not used to an artist displaying that level of vulnerability while also clearly wielding considerable talent And it s thus easier to create a narrative of a tragic icon or a hero than to admit that the artist was or is a real person It is also interesting to note that this sort of myth making seems to apply only to anyone involved in art Superstar athletes for example are far less prone to this It often seems that feats of sportsmanship while expressive and beautiful in the context of a sport are more removed from the spectator Art on the other hand can get uncomfortably close and needs a conscious distancing of oneself from the artist to be bearable There are books and documentaries about Nirvana s brief existence their momentary flare in the public eye and their lasting impact on rock music Most recently there s Brett Morgen s Montage of Heck which I watched a while back In contrast to the myth making described above Morgen attempts to bring the viewer as close to Cobain s inner world as possible I can identify with Morgen s view of Cobain as being afraid of humiliation and seeking refuge from uncertainty in what he s good at But on the other hand the point that he was driven to by according to Morgen humiliation feels odd It seems like such a simple take on such a complex thing as a human being There must be so much left out about him and the people he knew Whoever really knows you anyway You can spend the best part of your life with someone and you still don t know them and they don t know you There are just some things that are inherent to the person and thus unknowable Morgen does present an argument about Cobain s personality and why he did what he did Which brings us to the documentary itself why is this supposedly such an occasion Aren t there enough takes on Kurt Cobain s life as it is First off there are Second I don t know I mean there s even the precedent of Charles Cross going over Cobain s effects and coming up with a fictional chapter of Cobain s final thoughts I seriously don t have words for what kind of a person puts that into print To Morgen s credit he sticks to what might be loosely called a journalistic approach He posits the idea of the overwhelming effect of humiliation on Cobain throughout his life but doesn t go off on a thoroughly fictional tangent as Cross did The documentary itself is an effective narrative construed of the material that Morgen shifted through While watching I could at least entertain the filmmaker s notion Yet who knows though The more and more I think about it it just seems as said a simplistic point of view So there s a tape made by Kurt Cobain but

    fulfilling hobby in chasing and capturing beautiful sceneries and I enjoy seeing the beautiful photos others post Within this corner of Instagram there seems to be a nice sense of community as well I ve even met new people through Instagram I participated in the World Wide Instameet weekend in Helsinki earlier in the fall It was super cool to meet and shoot with people whom I follow and who are to use a cheesy term Insta famous some of the folks I met have up to over 100 000 followers and are photography professionals Being on Instagram is a peculiar tightrope of posting pictures you think are beautiful interesting and fun curating a coherent and inspiring feed and desiring visibility for your work In no way will I tell you that I don t want to get followers and likes of course I do But for me it s less about any notion of social acceptance although I d be lying if I didn t admit it s a tiny bit about that too and I like probably a lot of people hate that aspect of social media and its effects on us than it is about creating content you are proud of and naturally wanting it to be seen I get inspired about other people s photos so I obviously have a desire to bring the same to them through my work In my opinion Instagram and VSCO make a great combo as separate publishing platforms to go along with that sense of interaction feedback and community that you find in Instagram I love the freedom found in VSCO Because for the longest time I didn t know how many followers I had or who they were that information is now available I feel more at ease with curating a feed that completely serves myself I treat my VSCO Grid as something no one is following even though they are something were I can post exactly the kind of content I like to whether conventional experimental or artsy No feedback in the form of likes or comments equals no worry over it I find it fascinating how Instagram much as any social media has many subtle unwritten codes of conduct if you want to get recognition and success Certain hashtags are primarily used by people who are into photography and thus the images found in them are expected to be good quality captures by like minded photographers Things like posting more than one picture at a time or more than a couple of pictures per day would be considered bad as well as posting too irregularly or rarely No one is ever going to tell you this though it s the stuff that one just needs to figure out And when you get into photography in today s globally connected environment you need to get to know not only the suitable platforms of sharing your work but also the intricate web of rules and systems of conduct that

    or more than a couple of pictures per day would be considered bad as well as posting too irregularly or rarely No one is ever going to tell you this though it s the stuff that one just needs to figure out And when you get into photography in today s globally connected environment you need to get to know not only the suitable platforms of sharing your work but also the intricate web of rules and systems of conduct that governs the world you re interested in Of course rules are meant to be broken once you know them you are licensed to break them too All of this is an all encompassing experience which is why I am talking not about one platform or phenomenon only but about everything concerning it and my personal experience with all of it That is how interwoven all of it is with each other Photography through social media has also offered new kinds of opportunities for companies agencies and brands as well as the photographers themselves For instance Visit Finland ourfinland invited a bunch of well known instagrammers from all over the world including Finland to Ylläs last winter The ensuing images posted on Instagram were not only stunning but reached hundreds of thousands of followers all over the world Just like that Finland gained spots on a huge amount of bucket lists And when it comes to the photographers themselves well who wouldn t want a sponsored trip to a breathtakingly beautiful place full of opportunities for photos Instagram has its dark sides too of course recently a young Australian girl called Essena O Neill created quite the media buzz by announcing that she will quit Instagram and social media She had half a million followers on Instagram and a bunch of them on other social media platforms as well The message she wanted to convey was that social media is not real life and that the image of herself she was projecting and the social validation she was seeking out of likes and followers made her miserable O Neill s announcement was met with a throng of articles on various media outlets and commentaries by journalists and regular social media users A lot of them praised her decision her transparency and the promotion of a more authentic life However she was met with critique as well many commented that she put the blame of her misery on social media rather than herself and that social media is not inherently bad what is bad is the way she decided to use it I had never heard of O Neill before her quitting became a thing on the internet Her Instagram account was not the type I would have been following However I do think that the case served as a nice wake up call for all of us In my opinion both her and her critics have a point while social media has a lot of great qualities and does end up being what you make it for yourself it is also so easy to get caught up on numbers and the admiration of other people s photos and lives It s important not to take our social media presence too seriously and to remember to check ourselves regularly am I doing this because I enjoy it or am I doing this for social validation We should remind ourselves that absolutely no one has a perfect life no one s life is all glamour or all adventure all beautiful or cool In the end everyone is an average person with good days and bad days In reality our Instagram accounts present the highlights of our lives But that doesn t mean we shouldn t enjoy it as the creative outlet it has become Pssst Find me on Instagram evekammonen and VSCO vsco co evekammonen All photos by Eveliina Kammonen Tagged hashtags Instagram iphone lumia photography social media vsco Blogging An Industry of Sharing Your Story By Laura Kurki Laura Kurki April 17 2014 10 00 am Life 1 Comment There are tens of thousands of bloggers around the world and they re all sharing their stories marketing their brand through social media and connecting with readers During the last decade blogging has grown from few individuals posting their diary entries online to a professional industry The growth of the industry has also spawned a lot of criticism towards blogging Bloggers get labeled as sellouts as well as self indulgent narcissists One major criticism is that blogging is not seen as a real job But what is it that makes blogging any less of a real job Let s hear what actual lifestyle bloggers have to say about the matter Bloggers like Amber Felix http www ambyfelix com start a blog because they need a space for expressing themselves Blogging became a creative outlet for me while recovering from a work related injury I was a restaurant cook and really needed an outlet that would motivate me to continue my studies outside of the kitchen But it s not always your own passion or interest that kick starts the blogging career For Penda Penn a blogger and a blog designer http www ohpenda com blogging certainly wasn t planned My mother s best friend has been making a living off blogging for a while and asked me to ghostwrite for her She saw my potential and told me to man my own blog At first Penda felt that an audience would make her writing less spontaneous and funny but after a friend had complemented her entertaining journal she was willing to share it with others Reading up on Penda s life In the brutal and competitive world of print and electronic media blogging can be just the thing for budding writers who want the chance to be creative while earning an income Astrid Delgado http astrid stars blogspot fi had a clear sense of why she wanted to start blogging and where
