Many people argue about the boundaries of the music genres of artists. These boundaries pressures most artists to stick to one genre or perhaps a certain musical signature especially in their early releases or debut albums. I don’t believe that I can say the same for this smorgasbord of musical styles by, “Young The Giant”. A band with a fresh and energetic attitude through their songs pushing through all branches of rock n roll.
Their eponymous album, “Young the Giant” debuted in October of 2010 and has captured thousands of fans through the raw and arresting fervors of their songs. As mentioned before, the band practically embraced every corner of rock n roll by forming marriages of jarring drumbeats, rhythmic jazz slides on the electric guitars and most notable of all the smooth but intense vocals of Sameer Gadhia.
"Young the Giant" basically pulls off the debilitative myriad of musical fashion.
Russian photographer, Sergy Prokidin-Gorsky, perfected his technique for capturing coloured pictures over one hundred years ago. The images and color are truly remarkable. Most of the photos were taken in 1909/1910.
He used a three plate camera with black & white film, with each film exposed through either a red green or blue filter He then printed each film on a single piece of special color paper through the complementary fllters of cyan, magenta and yellow, creating a color image on the paper. This was obviously a very tedious process that produced a color image that is truly permanent and the black & white negatives have the same durability.
Below are just some of the pictures. It shows an interesting insight into Russian society before the revolution.
