In this edition of Synesthesia, we are featuring a member of the Lomography community, Paul (@PMONROE), who has shared a wonderful collection of photographs and music recommendations.
The theme of this edition revolves around how music and photos can act as channels to help us reconnect with lost emotions and memories. In Paul’s opinion, photographs can remind us of our personal growth and how far we have come as individuals. Similarly, he believes that music has the power to bring back collective memories and that certain songs can signify the journey and relationships we share with others. When combined, these two mediums can create a powerful and enjoyable experience of the past. Here are Paul's photo and music selections!
After spending half the day wandering around Tongyeong, Michelle made a comfy pillow with her padded backpack and laid up on top of a wide wall that overlooked the marina. She looked at me and smiled before closing her eyes and dreaming the day away under the winter sun without a worry or care in the world.
Roaming around Noosa Heads, Australia, I came across this absolute classic. I was immediately reminded of the 1950s movies my dad and I would watch together after hearing his stories about going cruising and racing the strip without much worry about being caught by the police.
I was on my way back from shooting some film on a nearby street and I caught Michelle pondering and waiting for my return. I realized that I really began falling for her…
Seoul has a wide variety of random fun things amid its vast subway system, and this is one of them. I only had one chance to compose a quick shot before Michelle kissed me and dragged me away to get on the subway back home.
Texas sunsets are some of the most brilliant I’ve ever seen as the clouds look like they’ve been painted on the sky. This photo makes me miss my home country.
Looking over Prague was a magical moment, and the argument that Michelle and I had the night before was put aside forever. We realized that genuine love truly conquers fear.
The winds on Jeju Island can be quite fierce, but they sure do make for a lovely photo. Michelle was a good sport and understood that art was in the making. Her serene look made me not want to ever leave the shoreline we shared all alone that day.
