Three Young Farmers On Their Way To A Dance
A recent post about the photograph ‘Three Young Farmers On Their Way To A Dance’ led us to a video featuring the picture titled ‘What This Photo Doesn’t Show’ and it hasn’t left our thoughts since.
What does it have to do with movies? Not much. ‘They Shall Not Grow Old’ was a recent theatrical hit, so World World I is somewhat fresh in the zeitgeist. Also, guest host John Green (Crash Course, Vlog Brothers) has written several novels that have been adapted into films, such as ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ and ‘Paper Towns.’
Regardless, filmmaking is essentially just photography taken to the nth degree. Both seek to tell a story, to capture a moment in time, and provide context to the increasingly complex world in which we live.
So we implore you to please set aside 10 minutes of your day and watch the following video presented by The Art Assignment. It’s immensely interesting, thought provoking, and the very best of what those of us who toil at the intersection of art, history, and Youtube strive to achieve.
