This project was an introductory course on photography and image-processing during my study abroad year at BAU International Berlin. The brief involved the previous project, Word & Image’s content of Mark Twain’s The Chicago of Europe text. The photographs taken must create a connection to the text.
My concept for this was focused around street photography and housing/living residence of where I resided in Berlin. There were themes of no identity, silent, almost dystopian-like environment, that is contrasted against the lively and busy city life of Berlin. I chose to photograph in monochrome because this supports my concept’s themes, as well as the photographs muted in colour so I could focus on content, detail and layout.
