TODAY, IT'S SATURDAY! AND SATURDAY, IT'S A RE-POST (REEDITED) FROM THE LOST ARCHIVES IN 500PX.
..................................................................
FAITH: AN ABSTRACT BEAUTY WHICH DRIVES THE HUMANITY SINCE THE DAWN OF THE MEN. THIS BEAUTY HAS A BAD SIDE, AND A GOOD ONE. BEAUTY IS A MORAL AFFAIR, A DUAL CONCEPT. IN MANY PHOTOS, YOU SEE THE BAD SIDE, THAT'S TO SAY THE EXTREME FAITH, THE BLINDNESS OF THE HUMANKIND. THESE FRANTIC GESTURES, THESE WILD EYES, LIKE A TRANCE CARRYING THE BODY TO ANOTHER LEVEL, NEAR A HYPOTHETICAL GOD. THIS SIDE IS PERNICIOUS. I WANTED TO SHOW THE GOOD SIDE OF FAITH. THE MODERATE ONE, WHICH OPENS THE EYES TO KINDNESS AND COMPASSION. I FOUND IT FAR MORE DIFFICULT TO CAPTURE, SINCE IT'S NOT VERY VISUAL, DYNAMIC. THIS MAN IS READING A SACRED TEXT, SOME EXTRACTS OF THE BAGHAVAT GITA, WHILE PROTECTING HIMSELF AGAINST THE SCORCHING SUN, IN A TEMPLE OF PATAN, NEPAL.
