My yellow study has started to evolve into one level deeper in complication, working away from the single snap shots into more developed lyricism. These photos represent a deliberate staging (whereas I typically shoot found objects in found settings, leaving minimal footprint). I feel as though the yellow was permeated my creative mind such that I can start creating some artowrk from my pictures and work on more formal picture-taking. Here is a step in that direction.
This set is a slightly different, more literal take on street photography. While I love being on city streets and do some of my best work there (seen here on my Newark Phototripping series), I also challenge myself to explore new perspectives on a given theme or setting. Also, I’m inspired by yellow as a cautionary color because it is so vibrant and catches viewer attention, as in the demarcation of lanes on a roadway. I paired this thought with the banana peel as complimentary cultural humour: don’t slip and fall!
