Daily Inspirations no. 173

Many people believe that the true purpose of art is to show only the brightest and the most positive emotions and feelings, and to glorify beauty, perfectness, harmony, happiness, joy, and love. However, the truth is that art is and should always be equally devoted to another type of human emotions as well: sorrow, melancholy, nostalgia, grief, and even pain. Without such alternative colors, the picture of life, created by photographers, painters, and illustrators, would be incomplete and lopsided. That is why, among the images, displayed within our daily showcases, you can see the pictures of shabby houses, dead trees, poverty, or human indifference towards issues, which do call for our attention and adequate response.
