Symbols

No photographs for this exercise, just ideas of symbols that might be used to depict a subject:

  • Growth: buds, shoots, new leaves, stubble on a man’s chin
  • Excess: fat, alcohol, a picture of a drunk, scales showing 12 stone
  • Crime: policeman, handcuffs, knife, gun, tough looking thug
  • Silence: baby sleeping, inside an empty church
  • Poverty: homeless person, neglected child

About Anne Bryson

I live in Gloucestershire with my husband Iain and West Highland Terrier, Isla. I enjoy golf, photography and my grandchildren, not necessarily in that order! Having completed a 10 week digital photography course with the Open University in 2010, I decided I wanted to take my photography further and enrolled for the Open College of the Arts BA (Hons) starting with 'The Art of Photography' which I enjoyed so much that I went gone on to do Digital Photographic Practice and People and Place. In April 2016 I enrolled on my fourth OCA photography course, Documentary. This blog is my Learning Log for this course.
