Photography, photojournalism

April 1st deadline for our Rethink documentary photography project is fast approaching, and I have decided to present my final edit in a book format. So, lately I have been thinking about editing, sequencing, layouts, font types, spacing, spreads, and the limitations of photography.

I found this interesting video of Christopher Anderson talking about his book Capitolio. In it he explains some of his sequencing choices, and attempts to demistify the book editing process for a group of photography students.

You can view more about Capitolio here on the Magnum Photos website.

Vernacular Unspectacular #2

Following on from my recent Vernacular Unpectacular posting, I was pointed – during a tutorial – in the direction of Raymond Moore, photographer; a man who in his own words tried to photograph “the magic that lies beneath the surface of things”.

The photographs below were taken prior to looking at Raymond Moore’s work, which is really interesting and challenging.

When I set out to document these rural vernacular buildings, I didn’t fully think about what exactly I was photographing. I guess there was some hidden desire to try and capture a sense of place, a sense of the history, some kind of resonant energy,  and its entirely probable that these images also reflect some inner state of being at the time of pushing the button.
