Shoes and Eyeglasses (symbols)

Discussion in 'Philosophy' started by Julie H, May 27, 2017.


  1. You do it all the time. I do it all the time. Everybody does it all the time. There will be stuff in your pictures that you didn't know was in your pictures. It's unavoidable in photography. Transcription.
     
  2. Michael, when I first visited the Holocaust museum, I was in my early twenties. I still remember the impact this image had on me (there were also other artifacts on display from victims). First you see a pile of shoes, then you see a pile a dead bodies. Each shoe is a like a skeleton, bearing the testimony of the denial of their right to existence by another fellow human being.
     
  3. Supriyo, I am very grateful for your response. It clearly demonstrates your humanity.
     
  4. phil.jpg How about the shoelace as a symbol?

    It can be about a holding feeling of security or perhaps representing organizing and self improvement. Or, a symbol of belonging to a gang (skinheads wear white and red laces) or a challenge to conformity.
