PALESTINE RALLY | Washington Square Park

by tewfic el-sawy
3d ago
Accompanied by J., I attended a Palestine rally that started in Union Square and ended at Washington Square Park. The crowd was estimated at roughly a thousand; mostly young people of different backgrounds and ethnicities. The march from Union Square was closely monitored by the NYPD, that directed the marchers to walk on the sidewalks, but not on the avenues. I asked a few people if they knew where the march would end, but no one knew...so the leaders of the march who probably improvised as they walked along. The rally and the march was in support of the health care workers of Gaza, so a n ..read more

  I've always been a fan of the quintessential Chinese cheongsam (aka qi pao) style, and have photographed a number of models in Shanghai, Hong Kong, Taipei and NYC wearing it. So I was tempted to generate 'Polaroid' portraits of a woman wearing it, and the results are quite realistic. The text prompts are "Create a realistic photograph of aa Asian woman dressed in a red cheongsam, with black hair styled in curls, black accessories, and red lipstick, shot on "Polaroid ..read more

  In the heart of Soho, the streets and alleys were the backdrop of a frigid winter day, and Abigail Ryu and I braved the biting cold to pose for my camera. The contrast between the trendy, and gritty architecture of Soho amidst the winter chill worked well, even though we were both shivering. Abigail Ryu is currently studying drama at NYU Tisch. Passionate about arts, Abigail is an actress, singer, dancer, and model ..read more

I thought of using the concept of a recent photo shoot (Kat & The Harlequin) to generate a MidJourney image using these prompts: [editorial fashion photography, elevated angle, beautiful Hispanic woman holding a red and white Venetian mask, wearing a Goth outfit, standing in a dark NYC alley, serene yet haunting. --ar 128:85 --style raw --stylize 20 --v 6] In so doing, I reversed the order I sometimes use by generating AI images initially for some ideas for forthcoming photo shoots.  Then, to go full bore artificial intelligence, I asked ChatGPT to generate a blog post based on t ..read more

Kat And The Harlequin

I thought of having a photo shoot with a Venetian mask which I believe (probably wrongly) that it represents the clown Harlequin. The Commedia Dell’arte is a theatrical genre born in Italy in the 16th century. It originated the masks that are still worn during Venice's Carnevale celebrations. One of the best known is the mask of Harlequin (in Italian, Arlecchino). Kat is a senior at New York University, majoring in the Urban Design and Architecture Studies (UDAS) program ..read more
