For a couple of years now, I have been taking pictures with an iPhone app called Hipstamatic. I currently have thousands of images and don’t know what to do with them. I wanted to create a book with them but there was no rhyme or reason to the images. Until now. It finally came to me—Nouns. Nouns can be people, places or things.
I have conceived a three-book set dividing the images into one of these three categories. Naturally, I wanted to start with the People book, but in the interest of a project I gave my class – produce a photo essay and a book to go along with that essay – I decided to start with Things simply because it was a more manageable number of photos to work with in the time frame of demonstrations and presentations.
Here I am providing a little-look see into both my process for creating the book and few images that hopefully will pique your interest to follow up on the progress of the book series.
Stayed tuned for more updates…
