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 and wanting to take photography further, I enrolled on the Open College of the Arts BA (Hons) starting with 'The Art of Photography' which I thoroughly enjoyed. Next came Digital Photographic Practice followed by People and Place. In April 2016 I progressed to level two with Documentary and in June 2018 enrolled on my latest OCA course, Landscape.
