Common History

Two posts in one night?? Aren’t you all lucky people ;)

my major documentary photography project for my Documentary Practice module in college this semester was to make a book, so that’s what I did. It’s called Common History and it’s on myself and my best friend and I’ve wanted to do it for the longest time! It’s a personal exploration of how when we were babies, we were in the same hospital for the same amount of time (although a year apart), we were treated by the same doctor for visual impairment and yet we each turned out completely differently. The book uses archival images, self-portraits and portraits to tie us together visually.

These photos are from Jon Shireman’s “Broken Flowers“. He soaked the flowers in liquid nitrogen and then shattered them for his 2010 series.

What do you think of them? Is it too weird a concept?

Monday post series #8: photoshoots I’ve loved

 

Apologies for not posting on Friday. I was mega busy filming and I didn’t have a chance to sit down and write a post. Anyway, without further ado, here’s the eighth post in the “Photo shoots I’ve loved” series (can’t believe I’ve done this for two months already…). This week it’s “Calla Lily” by JP Terlizzi. This is a fine art photography series on a lily (obviously ;)) and it’s amazing. The photographs are lit by a single flash unit and are in black and white. They depict one single lily in a new, fresh, unfamiliar way.
