I chose 'Edges' because I like the way you can change angles of the shoots to either make it look obscured or clear, also i like taking pictures up close and in focus to the object blurring whatever is out of focus. I really like this aspect of photography and pretty much everything has either a edge or curved angle to it which give a wide variety of what I can do.
First photo shoot: Edges in school
I think that most of these pictures are good and I like the lighting of my pictures. The second picture is taken looking straight up and is my favourite out of all of them because I love the the shading of the objects and the vents in the background. I did this because its at a weird angle and also looked impressive.
I love this picture and like the use of black and white, I like the detail and textures of the wall. This is a experiment on corners, edges of walls and trying different angles to make it more interesting. Loads of lines. You can see that the picture is three dimensional and the left side is brighter than the right. The picture is abstract and is the skin of the building. There is a expansion joint is in the wall and helps the building move when the building heats ups and it contracts when its cooling down.
My inspiration is Carl Andre, an American minimalist artist. His work is grid-like and to most people his work would mean nothing. Andre has a piece of work at the Tate which is a rectangle of different individual bricks, it was made in 1966 and called 'Equivalent VIII'. Another piece of art work would be Stone Field sculpture, 1977 in Hartford CT. Lament For The Children is another great public piece of artwork that was made in 1976 in Long Island City NY. He moved to New York in 1957 and started to create wood sculptures influenced by Brancusi. Andre then started to use materials like granite, limestone, steal, lead, and copper.
Stone Field is made of 36 boulders in eight rows, starting with the largest stone eventually ending in the smallest stone. Its setup like a triangle. This is the only piece of work that is publicly permanent. They're positioned in an unnatural way, next to a church.
Second photo shoot
I loved the image that I took and wanted to refine it to make the edges look parallel so I dragged it into Photoshop and pressed command A, to select all and change the perspective of my picture using the Transform tool.
Here I stretched the image to make it parallel and without this I could not have made it look as if I took it from straight down.
Conversion to black and white
Born in Venice 1980, lives and works between London and Millan. He uses photography to set the scene of thoughts and ideas through the manipulation of space.
The precarious condition of life
Lorenzo's pictures are very colourful and have a theme of disguise and he uses many things to disguise them. For example he puts yellow chalk onto a face next to a imaginative sculpture. The images are very tropical and use fruit like bananas and coconuts.
These are the routes we took through the day on the Photography trip.
The images I took on the day. Some are out of focus and i like that in some ways but some are not on purpose but I thought I would use them as they still are quite good. I wanted to take more but I am pretty happy with what came out of it.
I am going to recreate this image by using bricks and make the wall of bricks rip and have red wood behind it and have a street name at the bottom right of the picture. By using these three images I will try and make something creative.
How I would like my project to be presented
I like this image because it seems different and is simple but inspired me to have something like this in my project.
This also inspired me to make my project look warn and ripped up, i like that aspect of things not being brand new in photography.
First final outcome
I decided to create a collage of 4 images of the same stretch of wall, tearing holes in each one. I like the edges between all the bricks and the damaged edges of each photograph.
Second final outcome
I have edited these images in Photoshop using Threshold adjustments to make the images more abstract.
