Photography archives turned illustration project

These pictures started out life as a set in the context of a photography school assignment. They later got used in an illustration project that happened during my graphic design course.

These pictures started out life as a set in the context of a photography school assignment. They later got used in an illustration project that happened during my graphic design course.

On the back cover of the booklet, I wrote:

If I am to convey and communicate ideas through this book, artistic or not, I should consider this object as a platform through which to suggest thoughts, thoughts that I wish to conjoin with some of my values, some of my morals. By writing this text, I am doing just this and bringing together the literature and images to illustrate some of my concerns. In addition, I am embedding some morals that are dear to me, by exposing self-doubt for example.

I needed to inject some honesty to the way this project came to be, and came to have this shape, by explaining my process in the intro- duction. But this is not finished. This book is not a guide to listed answers. This is merely a way to further question subjects that I spend a lot of time thinking about but in a different manner. Trying to make sense out of it all, trying to act and react upon everything, and eventually— to go forth.

Bringing together pictures and text to make a point. The printed format, and the photographs married well into something I was able to push much further than I expected to initially. I ended up writing an introduction and some conclusions, and including them into the book. I designed for print as the exercise required, but here is a PDF version.
