Focusing on composition and geometry, I created a set a pieces that work at multiple scales. Each piece works by itself, as well as with its neighboring pieces, and all together as a complete composition. Composition and geometry are considered not only in a spatial sense, but also with color and contrast in mind. While working with the idea of scale for the composition of the project, I wanted to remove a sense of scale and depth from each individual piece, thus creating more graphically oriented, or “flat”, images.
This project incorporates multiple attempts. A series of simple geometric compositions focus on negative space and contrast. The scaleless photographs use texture, pattern, and color to compose a piece. I was also interested in showing the city’s architecture. However, I was more drawn to its architectural details. For me, the architecture is strongest at these moments. Architecture lives within the individual details; they are what make up the whole.
