Collective Thinking is an ongoing series where BME members take turns curating group edits.

“The dream has a very striking way of dealing with the category of opposites and contradictions. This is simply disregarded. To the dream ‘No’ does not seem to exist.”
― Sigmund Freud, The Interpretation of Dreams

With sleep comes jagged mind games - flitting between unrealised aspirations and the realisation of our anxieties. Symbols, mixed-up metaphors and chance juxtapositions are found then lost. Perhaps we seek these again through pictures that we can hold on to, when we have the time to make sense of it all.

Taiwan is a nation of scooters. Around 15 million scooters fill the roads on this island of 23 million people, the largest per-capita ownership level in the world. They’re not just convenient, cheap, easy to park, and usable year-round; scooters are homes on the road, vehicles of personal expression, the magic carpets of the modern world, always ready to carry you, your family, your hopes and dreams. A scooter, like a good photograph, can take you anywhere, anytime.

“Flowers have an expression of countenance as much as men or animals. Some seem to smile; some have a sad expression; some are pensive and diffident; others again are plain, honest and upright, like the broad-faced sunflower and the hollyhock,” said Henry Ward Beecher.

In this edit I picked the best flowers among BME photographers, with a preference to the wild, free and spontaneous, and invite you to take an oblique glance on the secret lives of plants.

We enter the world vulnerable, weak, dependent, and seeing only in black and white. That vulnerability may continue as other aspects of our personality emerge, and our vision develops to seeing life in color.

“In another moment down went Alice after it, never once considering how in the world she was going to get out again.”

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll, 1865

As photographers, we have already been here. This great change of circumstance isn’t something we can always put our finger on… but every once in a while it’s fun to look back and make-believe our transportation into a parallel world that, for everyone outside of our imagination, is one and the same.

I hope you enjoy Four Thousand Miles Down.

It appears that we forgot to properly introduce our latest recurring feature here at BME. Collective Thinking is an ongoing series where BME members take turns curating group edits of each other’s work. This upcoming Monday (March 25th) a new edit by Jason Penner will go live… but let’s reflect back on February. The 14th to be precise…

Members of BME all share different perspectives on romance. From youth to old age. From lust to companionship. From first kisses to warming cuddles.

The Invaders Must Die: A Flickr edit by Frédéric Le Mauff.

What I like the most about my fellow BME member is that there’s always a way to tell a story with their photographs. Concerning more particularly Justin Vogel; he has so many odd catches that it was a pleasure to find my own way through his Flickr stream.

I found it funny to tell the story of invaders sowing panic on NYC, funny to call to Superman for help. But stories have not necessarily a happy end.

This is not a project. It is just the start of one. A reconnaissance of Istanbul from the summer of 2012. These are Charlie’s Initial Impressions.
