A new candidate for my “narrative” photo assignment. I initially misunderstood what the goal of the assignment was, so I canned the previous idea and went back to the drawing board.
The photo’s supposed to be presenting an ambiguous narrative. The viewer’s not supposed to know exactly what is happening, or why. I thought the idea for this photo would therefore be appropriate. Even though there is implied aggression (the knocked over glass) it’s not exactly clear who is angry and why they’re angry, nor is it clear if the two people are making amends. Is the gesturing hand explaining or questioning?
(Thanks to Kyle for his hands and his patience, as well as my friend Chelsey for setting off my light bulb earlier with her mention of a knocked-over glass!)
