Patrick Holbrook response
One of the pieces that I found interesting on Patrick Holbrook’s website is one about the Bayou. I really liked it mainly at first glances it looks like it was about a landscape. I enjoy landscape stuff so it caught my interest the most.
I never knew what a Bayou was before so it was a very informative pieces. I enjoy the little facts about the Bayou. It really helps me try and understand what the clip was about. I really enjoyed how the lighting in the clip made it seem more alive. But I kind of wanted a little more movement. But overall the little clip was enjoyable, mainly because I love landscape stuff epically if it deals with water. Water overall seems to create a calm feeling. The clip of the Bayou gave off the same kind of feeling.
I also really enjoy the words off on the left side of the clip. I really enjoyed reading the words. At first I thought it was describing the Bayou. I then thought I was describing Holbrook’s feelings and thought, but it is not (I think). When Holbrook stated it about how it is somewhat poetic. I really did get that feeling as well. Each one and phrase gave me a calm feeling just like how the Bayou clip did. I really enjoyed this section of Holbrook’s website. I also enjoyed watching White and In Love. The clip was very funny. It was about some guy and in a suit eating a snack and I believe Holbrook jumping around. It was really entertaining. As for the pictures, I found it quite disturbing, in a good way. I was wonder where he took those pictures and did all he do it? I really liked the first picture with the close up. You can see the rough surface that the flour created on Holbrook’s face. A lot of his other works were entertaining as well but those two links caught my eyes the most.
