The Ambassadors #6

The Ambassadors over all was a confusing book to read but we finally finished reading the book. some of the interesting parts of the book that ii enjoyed reading was The Ambassadors (1533) is a painting by Hans Holbein the younger in the National Gallery, London. The painting contains a still life of several mainly rendered objects. the image itself was quiet interesting Holbein used symbols to link his figures to show the same things on the table. Everything in the painting symbolizes something also some are symbols of religious knowledge. It seems like the painting contains overtones of religious trouble. the image contains a lot of objects. Through out the book this was one of the important painting and i learned a lot about this painting because  of the discussion we had in class.

Blog #5 “The Pupil”

Henry James “The Real Thing” James plays with the exact meaning of the “real thing” throughout the stories clever and an interesting plot, which was suggested to him by one of the British novelist and illustrator George du Maurier. The narrator of the short story is unknown but he is a painter. He hires a couple a husband and wife, after they have lost most of their money and must find some work to survive. They are the “real thing” in aristocratic terms, but they prove to be hard and unskilled for the painter’s work. The Monarchs do not in fact make good models at all. But there is a deeper, more thoughtful reason that the couple cannot represent “just anybody.” The artist, himself, does not feel they are “just anybody.” Because he is not of the upper class himself, he is more than a little in fear of them; in fact, whenever he tries to work them into a picture, they always appear oversized in the picture. The couple speak and walk and carry themselves like they are born upper class, and they are useless as models because the artist cannot make them look like anything else. James does not make the short story into a debating point. The characters in the story all come alive as fully with their own creations. The reader can also express sympathy for the couple even as they prove all too of being useless, and the narrator himself is memorable for his increasingly worried but eventually attempts to help them.

Blog #2 Trachtenberg and Whitman

Trachtenberg’s in his reading he is showing us how a camera is an important object in our lives. How photographs are the popular historicism at our era; “they confer nothing less than reality itself”. I think this is a really strong quote Trachtenberg uses to tell us that camera is another way to capture reality in our lives. He also tells us how photography plays an important role in wars. Also by looking at the photographs you can tell what was going on at that time of period. Some photographers use old images and use present to describe the events form past. He also mentions that Brady was the first one to bring camera or photography to “cover the war at front”. He tells us a lot about Brady how he sold his photographs under his name. Brady names his photographs under a distinct context for example “Civil War Photographs”. He was also brought up in New York Times and was really appreciated for the work he did. Brady played an important role through out the civil war.
I was a little confused reading Specimen Days, I think he is trying to visualize us the place called Down in the woods. He’s being very descriptive about everything is sees. He doesn’t really mention anything about photography, I think he prefers seeing and observing thinks rather than capturing them.

Blog #1 Techniques of the observer

The Techniques of the observer has been changing for the stereoscope. Its a very interesting fact about binocular disparity that each eyes sees a slightly different image. there are two different views of the stereoscopic images. Some stereoscopic images don’t produce three-dimensional effects such as “a view across an empty plaze of a building facade” a pure stereoscopic image an object with filled space. form Wheatstones’s research he concluded that when an object is seen from a distance the appearance of one eye or both eyes would be the same. But if the object is near your eyes then the image would be different with one eye or both eyes.
