In this essay will be talking about Nana Fautine.I will be writing about her life in and expository paragraph which means to give you information about her childhood and how she became in art.The medium within which they produce and the themes her photos touch upon. Then I will be making a theme statement about one of her photograph as my claim and using evidence from arts like images ,color and etc.Then I will explain how your evidence rein forces your theme statement.In argumentative paragraph about her. Nona Faustine is from a beautiful city called the Big apple which is known has New York City she is from a very well known part called Brooklyn where she was born. Nona Faustine is a American photographer and visual artist and her most know work is a image of her called white shoes she focuses on history ,identity ,representation and what it means to be a enslaved women .She lived with her sister, father and uncle in Brooklyn and I think that she still leave in New York but maybe not Brooklyn. She also have some of her art work in museums in New York City. I say this because from the website "https://www.artsy.net/artist/nona-faustine"you see that these are some of the museums were her work is shown and people come to see what her photographs look like and try to figure out what is the message she is trying to get across. In her life her uncle and father were the photographers who took pictures of not just her and her sister but her family members in the south and the photograph in her house was treasure to her family.During her childhood growing photography was something use in her life photograph to bond with family members who were both near and far and she also viewed photography has a hobby for her .She spent her childhood flipping through heavy image books that was dedicated to Diane Arbus and Richard Avedon .She was drawn to photographs of Ernsst Hass the Austrian born photojournalist in these photographs they had a series of color and captured the riveting movements of the Spanish bullfight . Nona Faustine loves these bullfight photographs it was these images that gave her a way to realize that she could create a lot of things with a camera.Nona has been photographing since she was 4 years old her uncle gave her a camera has a gift this made her comfortable with the camera and the camera's instruments She learned that power was in these images that were been captured .This made her realize that their is a lot of things behind a picture and it is not just a image that is their put it has means behind these images . The way in which Nona Faustine produce art is in a very powerful way she wants her audience to know that her art is something that should be told in history and should be carry with you through out your life and she also want the audience to be to have a connection with it not just to look at it and say it just a naked lady she wants them to see that a story can be told from her world and that their is a lot of power in this image that she is showing to the world. I say this because in article from elle it say that "I like to think that every piece of art has an inciting incident, some happening or realization that plants the seed of its own creation". The themes that Nona Faustine art usually touches upon on slavery and how slavery is protracted in our life and she also use her photographs to touch upon how fat ,black ,naked women body are presented . The theme that I would say that are is use in one of her paints would be that slavery. In these images you could see that she is try to open the eye of people and show them that slavery is not just a thing that happen back then. But is still going on and how most of the places we go or visit are were slavery were their doing different thing facing a lot of harm and danger . The evidence to back is this image fromhttps://www.google.com/url?sa=i&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=images&cd=&ved=0ahUKEwjcz-W55bjYAhUjct8KHVKGAKMQjRwIBw&url=http%3A%2F%2Ffaceabidjan.com%2Finsolite-nona-faustine-pourquoi-elle-pose-nue-a-new-york%2F&psig=AOvVaw3a5JcBp3QBa4dKEWFEpYdJ&ust=1514965768955248. In her images you could see that what she does is very important to her in the photos she took that on the topic of slavery you could see that her facial expression . This image is reinforces my theme statements because it shows how a lot of our ancestor were treat and how they were dress or presented to the world also where they sold them has slave for money or goods it was like a market .It also tells use the a story that we may not have known that place we normal drive on in a taxi or with our parents. These are some of the place our ancestries stood with no clothes on their body no freedom and no freedom of speech. They had no one to help them out of the situation that they were put in and they had to just stand waiting for someone to purchased them no matter what type of weather it was. They were not treated like humans beings they were treated like items you would buy in a store today .She also shows that they didn't have no power that they had to do what they were told and they was no way out of it are you would be beating are the throw you off their ship and in to the ocean. This is not a part of it i just did it before and left it. In this article is about ancestors .It is talking about she is using her body to remake the pass of slavery .Here name is Nona Faustine she is using her body as an art to show the world what slavery was like and how it made them feel about it and how she wants it to be remark or put out to the world has .She use her body to represent how slaves were dress and how they were treat she use her body to show that black slaves when through in many hard times and had to make a lot of sacrifices so our futures would not be the same.She uses her body to tell a different story about our ancestors to people and show them that many of the streets and place we have been our ancestors were their. I like this article because it express the way that our ancestors were treated in a more free way like she shows her body the way that our ancestors were dress and do the things that they did to them to open up the worlds eyes to see what it was really like for slaves. Even today slavery is still going on but it is not in the places that she was stand it may be in a different country and it is probably the same way they are treat just with their clothes on .It brings back bring back memories of where they sold the slave for money that they weren't worth and they didn't have no say in it.
