“Pick a spot, stay there for an hour and see what unfolds” – Polly Braden
A four-hour delay at Gatwick Airport…with my camera.
“Be aware of the way the camera compresses a three dimensional world into a two dimensional plane and use that to your advantage” – Nick Turpin
“Play photographic poker. Look for a pair, two pairs, or three of a kind.” – Siegfried Hansen.
I took this photograph while watching the Canada Day parade.
Here are two other images that work well for this assignment.
“Get lost in a thicket of signs and structures” Wolfgang Zurborn
I found this assignment hard. At first I thought of a typical street with lots of signs and structures, really busy to the eye. I found several images that were full of chaos; lots of lines, angles, colours, shapes, structures and signs. In the end I settled for an image that was relaying a lot of information to the viewer but was still calming to look at.
“Document some evidence of human ingenuity that would otherwise go unnoticed. Do it without including any humans in the picture” Michael Wolf
This is a simple photograph but one that stopped me in the street: contrasting and strong colours with a geometry.
“Take a bus. Do weekly shopping. Pop into a public loo” Nils Jorgensen
I like this image quite a lot. There are striking colours on a grey background and regular shapes and lines of the boxes and fish stall that are broken by the curves of the people. Most of all, it is a brief moment during a weekly shopping excursion.
