In 1942, Rene Magritte tried to make an improvement of photograph

technic with his master piece titled La Predication. He showed the side of
Belgium Culture with two women in this picture. This picture can be seen and
found in Brussel / Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York city. The size of this
photo is not too large but with 8 x 5.7 cm, this picture can show us the
emotions of this picture. This picture also presented in black and white color
printing which can drive our feeling to fall in 1942.
Rene Magritte used the different technic to take this picture. If we see
the detail of this picture, in below side of this picture has a different shape
with the other sides. The road in this picture have a concave shape that
make this picture so wide even the photographer took this photo not really
far from the object. It is un usual shape as we know which used before
1990s history of photograph. I am sure that Rene Magritte used a different
tool (lens) to take this picture. I was born in 1994 and as I know, the concave
lens or we also named it with fish eye lens is just found in now day (after
2000). Or maybe the fish eye lens which provided the wide picture is just an
innovation that refer to Renes technique in 1942.
This photo also taken in outdoor with roadway photograph concept. The
old lamp post, the vegetation behind the fence in this picture show us the
real situation of Brussel city in Belgium in 1942. Based on the caption on this
picture, two women in this picture are Geogette Magritte and her sister were
hanging on a lamp post. In my opinion, the focus point of this picture is two
women in it. This also a unique side that I found in this picture. Two women in
this picture show us their happinesss sister relationship. They both wear the
log dress with the different color. The different side between two color will
guide the audience to get much perspective. When I see this picture, two
women there have an opposite character with the light appear as a separator
between them. The opposite character also shown in their different pose. The
women with the dark dress look more attractive but the women with the light
dr ess look more calm. There is my perspective, I am sure you have your own
too. This picture also presented the unique side. The unusual pose in this
picture is on their stability when their hanging on the lamp. The stable pose
is the hard part being a model of photograph. In this picture the women with
the white dress look more stable than women with the dark dress beside
here even she just hung with one hand. Here in the picture we can see it
clearly that they are able to express their creativity to pose. Their cheerful
facial expressions indicate the free-spirit characteristic in which break the
stereotyping towards women who specifically wear formal attire who have
strict culture, stiff and do not have an idea to let loose. Magritte perfectly
captured of the picture that showing the real natural behavior on daily basis
of human being on how they interact one to another, engaging and merge as
social being. The iconic photo is factual and realistic.
The composition position of this picture not really proportional. The
focus point is in the center of the picture but if I see the below side, the road
isnt in a fit shape (not exactly in center). In my advice, better the
photograph know and notice the composition of the object of their photos.
The composition position also can be applied in any lens to get a better
picture. The brown dot stain on the left side of the picture shows that this is a
restored picture from an old negative film.
