Emotional Spectrum in Pictures: Framing "Chrysalism"


Photography isn't just about the visuals, technicalities or equipment. To be a photographer, you have to capture the unseen and the abstract. And when you do, you grow one step empathetic. Here we review Lomographs that straight out speak of human emotions.

On a day of precipitation, one would find himself tucked in the sofa, feet comfortably up, coddled with a blanket, eyes tracing every droplet pitter-pattering on the window. There's a calm sensation washing over. This is the ambiance of chrysalism.

The English word "chrysalism" came from the editor of The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows, John Koenig. He defines the word as such:

There's nothing quite relaxing as one tugging out his dampened socks and shoes, having clean feet on the bed while the thunder roars outside. It's like a nice day for a cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate, a day to listen to that audiobook or read a tome, better yet, binge-watch a television series. Chrysalism for suspended classes and workdays, doing nothing but cherishing the stillness of being sheltered from the harsh realities and the rain.

It's chrysalism when you fall asleep on the lulls of the storm.
