Our latest assignment was a photo essay on what “Home” means to us. Using what I have learned thus far, I traversed the city in search of settings, symbols, colors, and constructs that spoke to me of “Home”. I came up with a game plan. I decided on a compositional guideline that included horizon lines, vertical frameworks, strong figure/ground relationships and a spareness of layout. I stuck to a familiar color palette and took advantage of the solitary aspect of the assignment. I purposely excluded humans from the essay. I love them, but they can be hard to control in a formal setting. I believe this shows my current state of mood and how I view the beautiful world I live in. I hope you enjoy this essay as much as I have enjoyed creating it. Welcome to my Home.
