Project 1 – Self Portrait Poster

For our first project in Process and Skills, we constructed black and white posters using only photobooth selfies and found typography for our initials. I really appreciated the strict parameters of this projects making it more about problem solving and the steps to the final image as opposed to the image itself. It is amazing what you can do with a photocopier and some scissors!



The image to the left is my original photograph. I was instantly drawn to the hands and the shape they made. I spent A LOT of time at the photocopier playing with contrast and scale of the hands, which you can see in the final image to the right. Seeing it in a small scale image, I really love the diagonal the hands form and the movement that happens with the different shades of grey and black!

P.S. Fun picture of everyone’s projects together!
