Home Diptych – More Research Needed

I think part of what we are dealing with the Home Diptych and a lack of ideas, can be traced to a lack of research on the issue. Here then, are a few bits of research from the AP Packet I included on the original assignment post.

Exhibit A.

home_1

Exhibit B.

home_2

How are your feelings different now that you know this?

How is art used to combat a real problem in the video above?

How about Documentary Photography

Think about the problem above. How would be able to use photography to shine light on this problem? If you cannot photograph homeless people or homeless camps, how can you symbolically show this issue?

Brainstorming Session: HOME

So I noticed that some of you seem to be having problems coming up with ideas for this photo challenge.

I googled “Photo Series Homeless” and right away found some inspiration. Especially in the 2nd link, which ties in nicely with our diptych format:

http://www.stevehuffphoto.com/who-am-i/my-homeless-project/

https://petapixel.com/2016/08/19/portraits-homeless-people-dreams-old/

Expanding the theme a bit, I found this:

https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/a-look-into-the-bedrooms-of-20-somethings-still-living-at-home

Notice the difference between the two, that difference can be the difference between the two images featured in your Home Diptychs.

What do you think of when you think of Home? What do you think of when you think of homeless? Whats the difference? Photograph that difference.

How is your brainstorming session similar or different? Which ideas did you come up with based on your research?
