Winter Delving

Standard

*
today too I went
to dig the winter
iced ground I had some
tears I could not let out

they were there like the
worm holes I saw
in the lumps I upturned

there are some things
I do not understand

about mankind
the worms were gone
hiding safe the dirt

just laid there perforated
all its holes not visible
before now looking up
to the sky under my eyes

Mornings From The California Notebooks

Standard

*

early mornings awakenings
one step after another

a habits that sets
me on the way

who do I meet
on my path

if not wounded
travelers

a shy roadrunner
without a claw

a shiny large crow
with a broken wing

and then there’s me
mending my dreams

Poetry From The California Notebooks

Standard

*

everything speaks
to me
of mending lately

I hear that word
inside
a practice very few

are aware of and
even
less know how to

I see ants mending
sewing
dirt to the ground

endlessly humming
birds
working the low air

other birds unknown
to me
reach out to clouds to

attach them to the sky
for me
it’s all there to see

as I lay beside men who
only
know how to punch holes

California Notebooks, Mornings, 2014

Standard

*
every morning
it is so

I’m given
exactly what I need

to squeeze life

found already

on the road
it takes some bending

that’s all
and putting away

.

oh forgetful me
it furthermore takes trust

withal much gratitude

FAREWELL (Luminesia)

Standard

Dear readers,

the project Luminesia online www.2luminesia.wordpress.com first saw the light with a post published on Dec. 22nd 2012. My goal, with this project, was to teach students photography, with self-portraiture as a first step. “Luminesia is a place, filled with light, where you may see yourself…” I was quoted saying in an article on the project published last year. As you may read under Project, self-portraits were achieved through the concept of empathy. The approach to poetry was called to refine their sensibility to translate feelings into pictures. They could choose from a vast array of poems on the site www.annamoscawordpress.com whatever resonated with them. It was a conversation on mutual artistic vulnerability.

This has been a very exciting project that touched and changed the lives of many, bringing a new challenge in both the academic and the self-portrait worlds. Along with the basic principles of photography, students learned the history of photography, composition and personal expression.  Exercises taught them to go deeper into self-portrait by representing their emotions. They also learned to be an active part of a collective blog and to open and curate their own personal photographic blogs. We achieved a lot, I must say!

.

Luminesia online ends with this post but, what has started well before 2012 and found here a suitable window online, will keep on living through different channels and locations. It will be my pleasure to inform you of future developments and projects or you can visit my blog for any news.

.

It’s my desire to thank all of my students of the Photography Course 2012-13 at the Acme Academy in Milan – Italy, and all the readers who faithfully followed us. My gratitude goes out especially to the Operative Team who diligently worked on the posts. Thank you Anna Facchinetti,  Mattia Terribile, Mirela Burcà, Cesare Pasquali. These students mentioned were always present and active in the vision I carried of Luminesia online and we spent long extra hours at school and on line to achieve what you have seen. They are also bringing forth some very interesting personal photographic projects on their own blogs. I invite you to check them out.

I remind you here that if you click on each name, the ones just mentioned as the ones showing in all the previous posts, you will be redirected to each personal blog of every student. It’s my wish that the personal blogs started with this project by my students will not stop breathing and that they may be followed with the same enthusiasm we felt from you for Luminesia.

Wishing my students and all of you readers to grow in every project you undertake,

my appreciation and sincere thanks,

Prof. Anna Mosca
