My previous post covered some of the basic ideas my fellow workshoppers and I considered on the University of Chicago campus last month. I wanted today to share with you some of the images that came from my efforts.
If you go back to my previous post and think about the rules I listed and then tried to sum those up in a single expression it might go something like this: make images with a narrative.
The story you are telling is inevitably a mix of your photographic experience and the subject, but by creating images that give the viewer someplace to go, you can invite the audience to inhabit your photo as well and populate it with their own stories. In these images I want you to come along and see the beauty of this campus as I see it.
As Ansel Adams famously said, “There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.”
