Point of View
Point of View is an exploration of one moment and location, one position in space and time. This book incorporates the structural device of the dissection plate into a representation of one person’s relationship to their immediate surroundings. Each of four spreads is a photograph of groupings of people. These photos were taken from a central point, and each is a 90 degree rotation from the last. A series of gate folds allow the viewer to actively dissect this environment into translucent layers printed with diagrammatic imagery, color, and text. This layered imagery emphasizes our social anxieties and our need to understand our surroundings.
