This proved to be a difficult project for me. I found the concept interesting, but quite hard to execute. The project was to spell out a word using our surroundings. It is called alphabet photography. I wanted to use my name. The first “A” are vines coming over a wall. The first “N” is the bottom half of a sign. This letter is my least favorite one as it is hard to depict what the letter is. The second “N” is the archway leading to the train tracks. The last “A” is the legs of a picnic table.
Although I found this project frustrating, I think it has helped train my visual eye to see my surroundings as something other than what they are.
