Terrible beauty and sublime ugliness... Alex.Tango.Fuego 1 Eija. 10 years ago

Group Description

This group is about strange or apparent beauty on issues or in things that's essence is not beautiful, but on the contrary. Or pictures that combine beauty and something harmful or sad. It is about paradoxes and metaphors. So the word 'calamity' is not supposed to take literally as disaster - ' beautiful' on the other hand has to be there.

The group was inspired by the work of seasoned photographer Hannes Heikura, the winner of Fotofinlandia 2008 and his winning series "Beauty and Death" back then.

By the way, I found myself pondering a philosophical dilemma about the opposite paradox. Can there be any ugliness on issues or in things that's essence is beautiful? I doubt.
