Constructing a series – 28.02.12

It occurred to me that creating a series of photographic works is similar in many ways to the process of composing an album of music. The pictures stand up as individual pieces but equally support and compliment each other as a collected work.

They may be encountered in a specific linear fashion (which may be ideal to the artist) meaning the series may have a beginning, middle and end; but also the audience may come across the works in any order and out of context. 

The artist may incorporate a variable dynamic across the series meaning that some pictures initially leap out being strong eye-catching and arresting, whilst others are less immediate but may prove to have longer lasting appeal.
