Create an Image Series: Repetition of place, objects or people

The use of repetition is an important technique in documentary photography. Portraits, self- portraits, buildings, landscapes, objects or possessions have all featured as subjects that work as series.

Explore this approach by finding and researching a subject to illustrate through a series. The subjects do not literally have to be the same but could be linked by their relationship to a theme or issue or experience. They could be buildings, objects or people. They could be linked by form or colour. You could be working in one location, across the city or in a studio. The brief is very open but the overall series must relate to or communicate something about an overall subject.

You are free to make all creative/technical choices. Think about what difference making photographs in B&W or colour make to the effect of the images and what the set conveys to an audience. Think about the relationship between repetition in an image series and formal or aesthetic choices concerning focal length, framing, distance, backdrop. Should these be uniform – or does variety add to the idea to be conveyed?

Love this collage of your street. And - I think I prefer the variety works better than uniformity does.
