“Typology is the study of types, and a photographic typology is a suite of images or related forms, shot in a consistent, repetitive manner; to be fully understood, the images must be viewed as complete series.”
One thing that I took away from the lecture was “Typology is a series of images, that treat objects like objects” – What a great expression. This stuck in my head continuously through planning. I didn’t want to be repetitive with an object, it’s not edgy enough. I wanted to create something that really pins on the idea of something being displayed as an object. My images display a bruise that starts off small through little movements, gradually expanding and taking over the face. The model acting the object, allowing the glass to portray her image.
