Introduce readers to the Black Curve Tumblr and what it is
The Black Curves Tumblr is a blog that offers an insider’s perspective on the fashion industry. It was created by two sisters and they have over 20,000 followers. They offer insights into what it takes to be in the fashion world and how to get ahead in the industry without sacrificing your values. The “Black Curve” but their blog is actually about designing clothes for social justice. The bloggers state that they try to get their readers to understand what being part of the fashion industry means. The blog talks about the process of designing and creating clothes for social justice.
As stated in the blog, they explain that “We can all agree that black lives matter. But there is an underlying issue that many don’t understand. When you step into a professional fashion industry, the core values are often lost in translation.” They go on to talk about how making a great product ultimately leads to profits and how it is important for the designer to be cognizant of the companies values. Ultimately, they are just trying to bring awareness to the social justice issues that are currently happening in the fashion world.
Showcase some of the best photos from the blog
The Black Curve Tumblr has a wide variety of pictures from the design and creation process. The pictures are very thought provoking. One picture that stood out was an image of a man with the words “I am more than” above the picture and “what you see, what you think, what you believe is what you are. But are you more than what they see, think, believe?” The picture was of a guy with a mustache dressed in white robes. He also had spaghetti stringed up his nose with a fork.
The background for the picture was a black scale with the names of some philosophers under it. Socrates, Mohandas Ghandi, Mark Twain and others. It was a very cool picture and thought provoking at the same time
Explain why people are drawn to black and white photography
Many people are drawn to photography because it is a stunning way to capture memories. Because it captures memories and emotions, black and white photography is a great way to get a point across. People love black and white photos because they seem to have more of an impact than others. Some call it the “power of silence” because black and white photographs can have a shocking effect on people. Other people may just not care as long as they are able to express what they want to. People like black and white photography because it can be a huge contrast to their everyday lives.
There are many things that contribute to the power of black and white photography. The first reason is that people want to see the true colors of things. In the world today, everything is colorized and enhanced. Never before, has there been a time when color was so important in a photograph. There are some photographers who believe that black and white photos should be left alone because they capture the true colors of life. Some people know that black and white photographs are not enhanced and they let that be their main reason for choosing them.
Discuss how photography can be used to capture emotion and feeling
A great way to capture emotion and feeling is by taking pictures. The photographers for the Black Curve use black and white photography to show their feelings about events. They wanted to show how many people have wrongfully been judged, which is something that black people face often. It takes a lot of courage to speak out against wrongful judgments. The Black Curve wants to show how people can stay strong and face their problems.
