    Can relate to that. I have a friend who is a decent photographer, but specialises in extracting graphic images from parts of what others have created. Not surprisingly, he's a great rust man and fan of the latest in polar coordinates. But he never sees the bigger picture......him in action:

    I keep going back to Sinziana Velicescu's website. Not keen on her "humans" as most are too staged, but the rest really hit the spot. I have seen similar work in the past and each time I go to the US (and certainly CA, where a lot of her stuff appears to be) I long to see and take such images. You would think some of those images are from decades ago (she was only born in 1989, so clearly not). The US is so backwards looking in places!

    Many of the aspects of Graphic design translate directly to photography.
    Especially in relation to the way space is used and the various elements that form a two dimensional design with in that space.
    Both use shapes, tones, colours, textures and representations of three dimensional depth to form the image.
    However Graphic design is mainly concerned with the Printed surface and consists of a balance between text, image and plain space as elements in those designs.
    This relationship, perhaps had a greater relationship when "Print" was king, and was emphasised in all photographic colleges in the 50's and 60's perhaps far more than than to day. I studied photography at was then called the "London School of Printing and Graphic Art" now known as the London College of communication. ( it was previously the London School of Printing and Graphic Arts, then the London College of Printing, and briefly the London College of Printing and Distributive Trades. and earlier still as Boult Court) These various names represent the relative importance of the various technologies and arts through time)

    Needless to say I have always been highly influenced by the relationship between Photography of all genres, and graphic design. it is the bed rock of Photographic composition.

    I was at College for the Distributive Trades on day release from my company. First in Charing X Rd then Leicester Sq. Was offshoot of the StMartin's School of Art, which produced many famous designers. Same place?

    Not at that time, but they later came together at Elephant and Castle, they are all now part of London Uni.. I did a three year full time course, much earlier at the original Back Hill site, Clerkenwell. I later did an advertising day release course at at St.Martin's. Which was a waste of time, for me anyway. Packed it in after the first year, as I already knew and doing, more than we were being taught.

    Still waiting for that light to shine

    ap macleans back door.jpg ap harris tweed.jpg From my walk today. Miserable weather so sheltered for a moment in the back doorway of Macleans department store, a shop which had been in Stornoway from the early 1900s or even earlier (must check). Anyway as I sheltered I noticed the now dark windows at the back door had interesting reflections. So here's one or two.
