This set is weird. I like it and absolutely hate it at the same time. Some shots I am fond of and some of them are **** and I know it. I am posting this set for critique to try to bump this into a proper direction as I think I am going with the vintage residential life in spokane. I want to make images that tell a story, within a photo essay. This project is routed in Walker Evans-ness but I will agree with plato in saying the things I can make are only shadows of the real thing. So yeah, if that last sentence confused you, I just need direction with this. I want to do an essay on residential life. Tear these photos (but more just the concept) apart so I can rebuild it into something stronger. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. Adding this one only because it fits. Shot a long time ago. So, a little more background. Spokane is just starting to get into the 1980's. I want to document that in terms of residential stuff. I dont know what I need to do differently quite yet, but I know this isn't successful work. I shot this all though in about an hour, so this is all preliminary "blueprinting." Should I include people? Maybe knock on the doors and ask them to pose on the porch? Can I do that without looking or sounding like a child molester? Yeah, your input would be much appreciated.'
