Photographs as Objects
For my Realism Project I have decided to go about looking at a photograph as a real physical object itself. We always look into the content of an image, if it is real or not, fact or fantasy but I wanted to look at it as something you can hold and manipulate. I want to look into 3 key areas for this project:
Mass Production of imagery and how artist uses this in their work
Found imagery and archival pictures
Physical manipulation and wear and tear which reminds us it is an object in itself.
I’m really looking forward to this because my last project was quite theory and subject based where this is more objective in a way!
