journeys Contextual Pages

I have used the photos above to symbolise journeys because they all link in their own way. The baby photo links by the journey of life and how there is so much ahead of him/her. Things like school, marriage and children. The car crash symbolises that one journey can lead to another. Such as that on the way somewhere can suddenly change  if you have an accident and it can make a new choice for life. The Picture of a destroyed houses is that you can drive through places and see wealth/poverty. The image of cancer is how it develops and leads to a journey of how the patient deteriates slowly and then can get better or worse. The image of death row is the journey of death and how you know you will die in the matter of hours or minutes. I chose this image because it suggests a path that was taken before they ended up there. I will try to do this in my images. The photo of the bus ride is that along a journey you can see new things and new faces. I like this image because you see new thing that you have never seen and it creates an environment where everyone is alien. The photo of the rebels is that its the journey of war and how people are effect over one man/women and there actions they take. This inspired me because of the current situations of Syria.

Street Photography
Diane ArbusDiane Arbus is known for her street photography around the world. She finds people with interesting personalities and features. All of her photos are in black and white this makes them look more realistic, like with all facial parts and blemishes being highlighted. I think soft light has been used in this photo but it’s her hair that gives the shadow on her eyes. Also I like the way that the lipstick stands out as it gives the photo a gothic feel and how her face looks so expressionless. From my research on Diane Arbus she lets the person she is taking the photo of relax and give a natural pose. I think the way she has her hair makes it look uncared for. I don’t like the way that the background is blurred out as it would of made the photo very interesting if you could she where she was, to find out more about her as a person. Another thing I admire is the way the black scarf is only slightly visible.
