The Week On EyeEm: Volume 31

By Jonathon Davison - 3 min read

Our weekly round-up of outstanding content uploaded onto EyeEm, each volume of The Week on EyeEm is unique - echoing certain details, social narratives, and creative techniques shaping our world. This week we are bringing you a thought-provoking curation and commentary from our Visual Lead, Jonathon Davison.

If you were to look at this life in the way you would a contract for, let’s say a mobile phone or a loan, would you still ignore all the small print?

You see, there are valuable insights within that small print that would provide priceless knowledge, but unchangeable nonetheless. For example, within this path that we call life and existence, it is more likely that we will lose more then we gain. Hurt more than we love. Fall more than we rise. But it is those exact notions that make us human and keep us moving. Life has a great enthusiasm for the unexpected, and there is so much virtue hidden within that.

So, this week I want to look at how the unexpected can affect space. Space not just as a physical perception bound to the exterior world, but additionally as a feeling within our human interior dimensions. As an emotion critical to the wonder of life.

“ A great silent space holds all of nature in its embrace. It also holds you.”

– Eckhart Tolle
