Photographic Fiction – An interesting concept.
Recently, on an episode of the LensWork podcast, I’ve come across the idea of photographic fiction and a work of creativity. I was intrigued.
The idea is to take a photograph, or a series of photographs, then write a story, long or short about that photo or series of photos. The story can be complete fiction or mixed with some truths about the photo(s). It doesn’t matter. The point is to create.
Looking back through my library of photos, I see lots of candidates for this type of story telling. I’m not going to use any of my clients portraits in these projects but I do have a lot of great ones that give me some ideas I can build on. I can see this as a project to carry me into the future.
Now, I’m not a writer but I do like telling stories. It’s going to be fun to work on this.
