Weekly Photo Challenge: Dialogue

This week’s challenge from the Daily Post is ‘Dialogue’. A very interesting concept and one that I think is brilliant! I’m excited to keep playing with this idea of two images having a dialogue and inviting us to their discussion. Here’s what Frédéric Biver had to say about the concept of dialogue and how it is important in telling a story through your photographs:

Dialogue is an engaging conversational exchange.

When it comes to photography, dialogue can be perceived as a consensual interaction between two images.

Placed next to each other, each photograph opens up to meanings that weren’t there when viewed alone.

Each composition reveals the photographer’s specific sensitivity to certain content or visual elements.

I really love this idea of creating compositions that work well together to tell a story. I learned about this in one of my photography classes but hadn’t thought about it more until reading this post and thinking on how it can really enhance your photography if you shoot to tell a story and build that story with each image.

Here is my first example of dialogue between two images:

Hope you enjoyed my interpretation of dialogue! Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to go check out all the other submissions for this challenge and get inspired!
