Working title "short photos"
The idea of "Short Photography" is to create a photo that has minimal visual information
to tell a story of its own.
Pin sharp focus, perfect lighting, textbook composition and processing aren't a requirement when it comes to photography. In fact it is surprising how much can be said with so little actually captured within the frame.
This is something that has actually run through my work over the years but I never reallyput the idea into words until recently when I was presented with short poems. Poems use "aesthetic and rhythmic qualities of language—such as phonaesthetics, sound symbolism, and metre—to evoke meanings in addition to, or in place of, the prosaic ostensible meaning."
Short poems distil these ideas down to a very simple yet idea filled product
It’s a kind of minimalism
Poetry is a form of literature that uses aesthetic and rhythmic qualities of language—such as phonaesthetics, sound symbolism, and metre—to evoke meanings in addition to, or in place of, the prosaic ostensible meaning.
