Whether you’re nostalgic for a past era or inspired by traditions that stand the test of time, share what classic means to you:Look for local scenes that conjure up familiar feelings — like a family picnic, a cozy coffee shop or a commuter dashing through the city.To make details ageless, be deliberate about what you do (and don’t) show.Don’t take any gesture or expression for granted. Instead, pull out the patterns in how people and animals interact.PROJECT RULES: Please add the #whpclassichashtag only to photos and videos taken over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. If you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. Any tagged photo or video taken over the weekend is eligible to be featured next week.
Video by @made_by_helgaVisual artist Helga Stentzel (@made_by_helga ) believes in the beauty of imperfections. “All these ‘alleged’ defects give subjects their uniqueness and, often, transform them into objects of art,” says Helga, who lives in London. Since childhood, she’s been a creative thinker and an artist, and her account reflects her out-of-the-box ideas. She names simplicity as her top inspiration and calls herself a minimalist. “With the help of just a few lines, I manage to turn an ordinary object into something unexpected. In my work, there are no complex textures or shapes; I consciously try to avoid them, so as not to distract the viewer’s attention from the beauty of ordinary things.” Watch today’s story to see more of Helga’s creations.
