Visual Storytelling is the most powerful way to tell a story. It presents images and scenes, which the audience will interpret into a story. Visual stories involve both the creator and the audience in a deeply personal way. This is what makes stories so powerful.
Wilde World, the new magazine, will explore the creation of visual stories in photography and film. It will also examine how stories work on audiences and how to create them.
You can access the first issue of the magazine “Wilde World” here (the word “World” is represented by a visual (earth seen from space)): https://www.robertwildephoto.com/WILDE-WORLD-MAGAZINE/1
This is the first issue of the magazine, focusing on still photography. It contains an article on the relationship of art and commerce and why stories are the only thing that companies will find useful to connect with audiences within the next 5 to 10 years. It also contains the story “Heroines”, photographed for an LA high fashion brand.
Visual, fictional worlds have a much clearer setting than the real world
The second issue, currently in the works, will contain a story on video and how sequences of scenes and cuts influence the visual impact of a story. It will also have an article on how visuals work and how they can work for you. The second issue will come out after the July 4th weekend.
The Magazine will cover how to build fictional worlds through visual storytelling. You will see the attractive force of fictional worlds – and why they are such strong attractors. Visual, fictional worlds have a much clearer setting than the real world, with its values defined better and a focus on the essential – leaving out all the non-essential.
A fictional, visual world is not full of clutter and things we do not relate to. All is interconnected, and all that doesn’t concern this world is edited out. This is why fictional worlds are so influential – for many people the fictional visual worlds are more important than the real world out there.
