Your mom is overweight, and your dad is starting to forget things
Great post by photographer, Peter Blanchard that talks about evidence-based art research – research that demonstrates how certain kinds of art can have a true positive impact on health and quality of life.
No, this isn’t a “your mom” joke, and my blog has not been hacked and taken over by teenage pranksters. I chose the title because these things are inevitable. Aging, illness, injury . . . they happen to everyone.
I made a statement in my recent video that everyone will end up in the hospital sooner or later, either for yourself or attending a loved one. Yes, even you.
Why am I talking about this on a photography blog? I’m talking about it because several years ago I learned that I, a simple nature photographer, had at my fingertips the tools to make a difference. I learned that much of the art I was already creating was in alignment with the principles of Evidence-Based Art research – research demonstrating that art with specific elements can have a very real and tangible positive impact on the quality of life.
