To widen my idea range I have been looking at work from different photographers and artists, I feel that by researching what is already out there I can have a good understanding to what makes images about human presence interesting.
I started off by researching the most famous artists and photographers so I could see what an audience enjoy the most.
Brassai – Graffiti
Richard Long – England 1968
Walker Evans – Stamped Tin Relic
Irving Penn – Cigarette
John Gossage – The pond
These artists/photographers have given me a good insight to what I could produce for classic imagery, I have learnt about their works in a deeper way relating to human presence.
I continued researching more artists and photographer as I wanted a huge bank of ideas and thoughts that I can trial and error. I feel that by researching this way it will help me to gather great ideas and thoughts.
Sophie Calle – From The Gotham Handbook
Rut Blees Luxeberg – Sofa
Peter Fraser – Untitled
Henk Van Rensbergen – Abandoned Places
I feel now that I have a wide bank of references to refer to for ideas and concepts, having this research completed has helped me to narrow my ideas down to particular ideas. I am now going to concentrate on 3 of my main ideas, develop them and see which idea has the best outcome to become my exhibition pieces.
