I was talking to my friend Stephen and he started talking about blockbuster images. It got me thinking about my photography, as from the beginning I have always had a Gestaltist approach to photography. (Gestaltist = "The whole is greater than the sum of the parts".)
I got interested in photography in the early eighties when the Australian Centre for Photography opened around the corner from my share house. From the start my photography has been homemade books, albums and slideshows. My present website is a collection of virtual exhibitions of usually fifteen images with attention put on the sequence of images. Even my blog "Second Chance Images" which features single images is as far from blockbuster as you can get. On this site I usually post 3-4 images and if I do post single images it is usually somewhere like Without Prejudice.
I regularly visit galleries and usually browse a photography book or two after doing my weekly shopping. I see exhibitions and books as a whole and if asked I would probably find it difficult to pick out favourites.
Reading posts and looking at images posted here, there are those that would appear to be on the other end of spectrum to me. People only post one image, they pick a favourite or they stake their reputation on an image.
I'm not a pro photographer, though I have taken hundreds of images for my work as an illustrator. I'm sure the pressure of earning a living based your work could result in a very different approach.
How do you approach your photography?
