They say art is fluid. Fluid in the sense that no matter who you are and where you stand in life, you can always create and appreciate art. There is no governing body that can tell you what is art and what is not. To an open mind, that tiny leaf floating in the breeze is art or that doomed bee perching upon a poisoned flower.
That’s why celebrating art in its different form is important. Which brings us to the topic at hand.
Cars are of a different breed if you ask me. Unlike music, paintings, or sculpture. There is a whole other dimension to cars. Of course it is easy to say when a car looks good or not but its more than that. When you talk about art, you sometimes have to go above the aesthetics of a specific piece.
In the case of cars, it’s not just about the fact that it looks good. You should also consider what it does, how good it does the job, and how different it is.
That’s why limousines really astound me. Here we have a tweaked car serving a purpose only it can do. This is not to mention how luxurious it looks. It’s the idea that once you start working on it you just can’t go back to what it was before.
See, it’s not about how limousines are used by the rich and the famous. It’s not about how it is the car of choice for royalty. It’s about the fact that whenever somebody rides a limousine, they instantly become important. Few other items can do that.
That’s why whenever there are events, limo hire mandurah are always ready to take requests. From big black tie events to simple prom dates. Limousines have captivated people from all over the world.

In todays society urban landscapes are changing and so is photographer. Times are evolved from when remy marlot was in his prime. These days it is all about how bug and how fast verus how unique and how differently beautiful we can make something. I think that added a real element to remys work as he had the perfect landscapes to work with in his day rather than what is being produced right now.
It does however not happen overnight these changes and often they do change cause of social requirements or needs and most of the time innovative ways. We are always changing and evolving and photography is no different. The way photos and videos are taken, captured and edited. It will be the same in 20 years time things will be different again.
Remy marlot was indeed a beautiful artist behind the lens and the urban landscapes he had too work with were to some beautiful art. As times change we don’t forget about the past though, as people like remy will be remembered.
A dark and mysterious piece. However one that defines and showcases off the lovely traditional style building in a very raw yet beautiful way.
An interesting thought as to what he was trying to capture in this photograph and whetehr or not he has been successful in peoples interpreattion of the photo. A great picture indeed.
An interesting question to ask, is if Remy was involved in other types of photography and if he published any work based on these types of photography.
Perhaps portrait, fashion/beauty, nature, wedding, whether or colour experiments. Although known for his urban scapes it is an interesting thought as to what types of photography developed him into the style that he has produced for us to all be memorised by.
Remy Marlot a great photographer, inspiring many of my own pieces of work. However something that has caught my interest as of late is different methods, services, and ways of capturing the moment. Whether it sbe the newest generation thing of ‘selfies’ where photos are taken of yourself by yourself to show others where you are, what you are doing, who you are with or how you are feeling.
Other ways include the latest and greatest action camera footage using GoPro’s and various mountable cameras that are shockproof, waterproof, dustproof and can be placed on your hands, head, board, bike or body. Or perhaps something similar to a selfie but to include the whole gang, a photo booth , an area designated to capture particular points in time that you set and ready yourself for, with an instant print out to enjoy and share.
What will be next. Will it be a new style of photographer (upside down photos perhaps), maybe it will be new technology or perhaps it will do a complete turn on its head and go vintage once again. Only time will tell. Regardless though things can always be appreciated and remembered with photos and shared all over the world, whether you are in Perth, Melbourne, Miami, Africa, ITaly and everywhere.
A great photographer, inspiring works and pieces of photographic work, photographic knowledge and photographic services and products.
One of many who can use a lens to create magic for different things.
