This is going to be the first post of before and after. This post belongs with the previous beverage post. I am still reeling about how well that shoot went. I cannot wait for the feedback that I will recieve on those images. I had the idea of what I wanted to do for the images, then I went hunting on Pinterest for a little more push for inspiration. Upon scrolling through the massive amounts of pins, I found what I wanted.
For my assignment I had to recreate a piece of work on one of the artists that I was researching. The photographer that I picked was Abelardo Morell. The image was Dictionary 1994. The book above is a dictionary that I own that was given to me by my grandfather. I have had it for many years. This book holds personal value to me. It was such a challange trying to recreate this image. I know that I was not even close.
Abelardo Morell is a new inspiration to me, I am in absloutly in love with his book series. I want to do more with books. I have yet the heart to destroy my personal books for any projects, so I must go and buy some second hand. If you would like to view his work this is his site: http://www.abelardomorell.net/posts/books/
You will be SERIOUSLY impressed! He is an amazing photographer.
