From the photo essay thread:

Originally posted by daisydavid:

A journey of connectivity and continuity, reinforcing characters using different framing. I feel the journey and can extrapolate from the reality, probably what I'm hoping for in insteps essay

Originally posted by Cory:

A very clever photoset drawn together via a walk in third party - love the reversal, as it gives additional depth.

Originally posted by posthumous:

This is a good example of how following a pattern can create a strong, cohesive experience. First of all, every image has large, blurred foreground figures, blurred not just because of DOF, but because of motion. The motion starts off to the right, then an old lady in the background stops the momentum and turns all motion to the left, which is accomplished in a very simple way: simply flipping all the photos... Until an old man in the background puts a stop to that and sets the cycle in motion all over again.

As well as bringing up themes of pulse, rhythm, lack of progress, there is the simple fascination of seeing an image both ways. Some images feel different in each orientation, some images feel "wrong" or off-balance in one of the directions.

These simple "rules" or patterns combine for a complicated but coherent experience. It's also just plain fun.

The image of the girl on her father's shoulders is the only one where there is a lack of depth of field, it does not fit as well as the others.


Never mind if you're coming or going, we are all in a loop. Becomes more tragic with each passing. We are normally so focused on the movement to get to the destination, we miss the ones that are stationary.

Thank you all for your kind words and consideration.
