Artists reasearch in response to the word ‘Sequence’
Sequence in photography is largely associated with extreme/action sports such as BMX, Skateboarding and Parkour. I was initially drawn to this piece as I am a BMX rider myself so I could instantly relate to the narrative. I was also drawn to the loose symmetry of the composition, the simplistic geometric shapes of the architecture against the organic shapes of the person, and also the fact that the person is almost silhouetted against the building which sort of causes intricately detailed negative spaces throughout the image, similar to the piece; long exposure by Omur Khaveci, which I have looked at previously. This image has been created using post production editing software to superimpose the person from seven or eight initial images into just one, this is something which I would be interested in looking at and experimenting with in my own work.
