Exercises in graphic and photographic composition take place in the studio everyday – these two mediums are constantly interacting and supporting one another.
This continuous series of graphic sketches that we’ve entitled ‘Graphic Language’, engages the perspective of the photographer and the interpretive eye of the graphic designer, moving from photograph to graphic representation. The process is less about creating abstraction, but about asking what is truly lending visual impact and interest – what happens to our sense of reality when certain elements in the photo are removed or are made the focal point? How does the eye interact with the page? What does it follow? How is atmosphere and space represented? These drawings are quick, instinctual, reduced, and often unexpected, and it’s such a fun way to access and play with our endless photographic library.
