Our Photographer isWynn Bullock

He is famous for :

His use of Symbolism in Photography

Relationships stabled between nature and humans

The fact that photo’s aremorethan reflections

Wynn Bullock was born on the 18th of April 1902 in Chicago America

His work is included in over 90 major museum collections in the world.

He has also published numerous books and mentioned in numerous standard histories.

He died November the 16th 1975- ages 73- Monterey California

1923 -a young Bullock:

This is our image:

The rule of thirds is not implemented as much , however the face is pointed out yet not emphasised enough.

There is no cropping , framing , leading lines or reading gravity.

This is an image on a exposed lady lying in a forest . It keeps the audience questioning weather she is dead or alive , many may question if this is a case of rape – and simply why she is doing this. It makes the audience question the photographers choice and want to see more. It is an inspiration for our own work as mixed messaged images are more creative and fun. This is also more realistic – it makes us want to show realistic pictures more realistically withought the editing ; yet through the power of staging.

The only technical change which seems to be shown is the fact that it is black and white as appose to its actual colour.

There is no convectional ways of seeing this , yet it shows realism and power ; something Bullock specialises in. – something which has inspired us all to try

The feel of this image is negativity , confusion and realism. As the colour – black and grey having negative connotations as colours - , positioning and staging suggests this - as the image is lower than everything suggesting the topic is not important or superior -; the photographer has achieved portraying his message and feel of the image– which is the negativity of such a situation - women who may be dead or raped in the middle of a forest.

Bullock has inspired me to take photos based on realism – and this links to my theme of seeing and believing – we see this image and we question what we believe . It is also a image based on interpretations of seeing – which is clever of the photographer also inspiring us to take photo’s with the same affect
