So I can say that I have been struck with a lightning bolt of inspiration after yesterday’s critique from 6 – 9 and I discovered 2 photographers, Ralph Gibson (whose aesthetic I’m trying to emulate) as well as Duane Michals whose narrative collage structure I am trying to copy.
I made some photographs of my friends William and Liza in Goddard yesterday when the sunlight was incredibly evocative. (I think it was around 2pm or 3pm). I cropped out close-ups on specific features and arranged them in a grid. I think I am going to try and experiment with the whole photo narrative concept for a bit and see how I like it.
If you notice closely, the crops that I have made on the portraits highlight the parts of the face that make that portrait important to me.
Here are the photos I made.
