Street photography: week five

“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.

Street photography: week four

“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.

Street photography: week three

“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.
