'Toto'





In this photograph, I've chosen a retro look for a retro motif. An old sentence for an ancient movie surely deserves that kind of treatment. For you who haven't seen Wizard Of Oz, go see it. It was a huge thing when it came out in 1939, still awesome for kids even in the eighties when I've seen it for the first time. Well, when I think about it there are those timeless films and it is one of them.

So as I mentioned, the retro look in this one is defined by lowered contrast, heavily desaturated use of colour and all the little dots and scratches that define worn out negative. It all falls nicely together to define the first, black and white part of the film while the action is happening in Kansas. Later on, when Dorothy and her dog Toto arrive in Oz, everything turns to a heavily saturated colour and super expensive sets for the time.

Well, what to add? :) See the film if you haven't. It is naive and emotional from today's perspective but if you 're able to look past that and enjoy times long gone, you'll have fun. For you older folks, enjoy it just like you did when you were a kid. Those were different times.

In any case,

Enjoy! :)
