Trying to reduce the 415 photos I took on the shoot for this event has not been straightforward, particularly as many fall into a number of different potential themes. The three I have identified as possibilities so far are community, children and aloneness in a crowd. Below I have attached contact sheets to illustrate some of the photos for each.
Alone in a crowd
My inclination is to go with a series on the theme of Alone in a Crowd, as that fits in with the assignment guidelines. However, there seem to be a better selection of images in Children, particularly P1610959, P1610968, P1620084, P1620177, P1620227 and P1620253. I also need to consider how I will ground the selected images within the event itself, and think that a sprinkling of crowd images will be necessary to provide context. Finally, my current inclination is to make the series monochrome, to reference the timelessness of these events. Sadly, I am not sure that any of the individual adult portraits I made (and which I showed in my previous post) will fit the themes.
Time to throw it open to my fellow students now, for critique.
