For this assignment I had to emulate a photographer’s style and I chose Louis Porter’s Signs of A Struggle. This is a collection of images within Porter’s Small Conflict Archive where he travels around the world to find traces of a minor conflict found on the surface of our environment. These are always man made conflicts where he sees a city as a legible surface that absorbs and reflects the essence of our actions. He observes the remnants left from daily life and try to understand why? or what happened here?
So in order to emulate his style I went around the neighborhood looking for small incidents that made me laugh or wonder how it got there. Wondering what events led to what I was witnessing.
