If you have looked at my gallery then thank you! I really enjoy commenting on other artists' work and so I return the artist friendly act of comments & critiques by doing so back. I enjoy :+devwatch:'ing lots of great photographers, and being inspired even more. Long live dA!

Hello and Welcome to another issue of 'On the Other Side' a collaboration between Bats and I.

Batsceba and I came up with the idea to create a gallery folder within Progressive-Street that showcases some of our personal favorites that are street photos a little off-kilter from the usual. As you can see in our header image we give a brief wording of what we look for in these images we choose to add. Of the images we choose, we wanted to share our thoughts of why and how they stand out, why they are a little unique to the more traditional street captures.

Bats and I will be taking turns issuing journals for Progressive-Street choosing a number of deviations from the "On the other side" Gallery to write about.  Now keep in mind I am no great writer and my writings tend to be a bit random and off the top of my head. I simply type off the top of my head.  :typer: revamp 

On dA there is a lot of wonderful photo features, but rarely is there words to go along with why they were chosen. I feel it's such a visual and mental experience that words are just put aside sometimes.  They aren't necessarily needed for ones' own understanding and enjoyment of a photograph. So bringing words to a picture, even if it is just a few sentences or a short paragraph..really gives the viewers and the photographer something on the other side.

Afternoon by IrynaFedorovska
'Afternoon' by IrynaFedorovska is a street capture that takes us into a world that is just a bit different from our own. We are dazzled by a composition that gives us a feeling of open space, however filling that empty space with a feeling of sci-fi, like the scene from an episode of The Twilight Zone. The elements in the photograph are eye candy as they all are unique of each other. We have all sorts of shapes, shadows, and secrets. What makes this different in my opinion from other street photography is that it lacks an environment that we could more relate to as normal looking...this place is rather...on the other side.

Train journey by DaniRDA
'Train Journey"  by DaniRDA is a dreamy, and bokeh creamy photograph capturing a moment of childhood and life. The light on the child's face and her expression is beautiful and conveying. Out the window of the train we see shapes of bare trees reminding me of winter and adding to the thoughtful and almost melancholy yet wondrous expression of the child. Street photography rarely has beautiful out of focus areas like this that works towards the image. I feel I've been brought to the other side. This is a great composition and congrats on your well deserved DD Dani! :clap:

what do I know about fashion?! by lightdrafter
'What do I know about fashion?!' by lightdrafter is quite obvious that it is on the other side. The composition is what I love about this photo. We have lines, squares, reflection and of course the connection of the pairs of feet and also the contrast of the different type of footwear. Particularly the plastic bag shoes in the middle :lol: I find this image goes to show that you can create very interesting compositions when you look a little farther then most. I think it's raining on the other side there.

Happy New Year by arslanalp
'Happy New Year'  by arslanalp is a photograph with a stunning foreground and background that speaks volumes for the eye, but leaves us in the dark on the other side of things. We have here an image that leaves us wondering who this silhouetted man is in the foreground. We can see his nose, lips, eyebrow perfectly. I find this image more unusual from other street captures as the silhouette takes up the majority of the frame however we have a background that moves perfectly around our foreground subject. The face of the man directly behind the foreground man is also interesting. I find we are definitely taken to a mysterious instant, on the other side.

Twonnel by Loucos
'twonnel' by Loucos is a perfect example of being on the other side. One thing I love is creative effects through slow shutter speeds. In street photography a lot of us put shutter speed quickness over anything else, to catch the fleeting moments. So when I see this it just blows my mind. It looks like the combination of a movie nightmare dream scene and an alien abduction. The intense contrast to where we don't have hardly any greys really grabs your attention. Alien figures heading your way to take you to the other side...

Jess(e) Golden
Artist | Photography
United States
I'm Jess (people call me Jesse too) and I have almost always lived in the Seattle-Tacoma Metro area of Washington State. I'm a very obsessed photographer. Digital and analog. I particularly have fallen for street photography in the last 2 years.
I have met so many talented artists here on dA and learned so much from the amazing photographers here. dA is definitely my home as I've been uploading here for over 9 years now and can't find myself to go anywhere else. It is truely inspiring to be a part of this community.
I thoroughly enjoy to watch and follow deviants works so If you choose to watch me, expect a watch in return. Cheers!
