Tableaux

Due next week, a photo-narrative, ten to fifteen well framed “still shots” that hold together as a narrative sequence (although the exact narrative can be ambiguous). It must be “inhabited space” as we defined it in class. Some examples follow:

The emphasis is on “tableaux.” Still camera, gravity line parallel to the sides of the frame. There is a weightiness to this sort of frame, and a stage like enclosure for the inhabitants within it.

This is the shot of the early films, the still and expectant camera of the Lumière Brothers.
