CLOUDS FOR COMMENT
In her series Clouds for Comment Diane Rosenblum makes dramatic photographs of clouds. Posting her photographs in social media such as the Comment Comment Comment group on Flickr, she invites interaction. Viewers post their thoughts on the photos, sometimes profound, insightful, and erudite, sometimes flippant or banal. Comments range from, “like the idea, but the sky is slightly uninspiring...keep an eye out for a more interesting sky :)”, to “I like the colors, but composition is ordinary”, “this is so pretty I want to lick it”, and “I'm not sure there really is a crop that can rescue this photo.” Rosenblum superimposes the text comments directly on her large prints.
