Photo Essay: Letters


Photo Essay


It took me a while to come up with a topic for this assignment.  I wanted something that would look cohesive, but the photos were connected in a more abstract, not-so-obvious way.  At first glance, the subject is not easy to distinguish, but it becomes apparent after looking through all of the photographs.

I walked around campus and my dorm room looking for letters of any kind, and I attempted to capture them in a unique way: from a different angle, zoomed-in, etc.

Illustrate a Word: Repetition


American Apparel T-shirts

American Apparel T-shirts

While I was in Georgetown this weekend, I saw this row of tshirts in the window of the American Apparel store on M street. The store was closed so I couldn’t go inside, but I decided to take a picture through the window anyway and see how it came out. Luckily, I was able to focus it well, and the lights reflected in the window make the photo more interesting.

The photograph demonstrates repetition without being boring because the different colored tshirts make the visual more appealing. The lighting underneath the rack of shirts makes them seem to glow.
