“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.
Out of all the shots I took while on the journey of telling a story, the 3 images above collaborate well. The eye being the main feature that grabs the attention of the viewer.
