Sound of Silence

Essay 69 • Jul 25th 2016

Sound implies a duration. Sound needs time. Photography, as a visual medium, is a capture of fixed moments. Photography is silent. How can you translate sound on an image? How can you show the inner music, the screams of emotions, the background noises? How can you be heard on a photograph? What do your face, your eyes, your body say?

Dwam Ipomée
I’m a 31 year-old queer artist from France, trying to do all trades (usually too much). Life is too small! Beside tattooing, when I’m not gallivanting on the world’s rooftops, I keep creating in various art fields: photography, illustration, video, and comics.
