This is a multi exposure photograph with multiple elements stacked on one another and the images blended to show portions of all of them. In the top right there is a picture of Michael Jordan, mid-jump, rising towards the basket. This sits on the background of musical art for the rapper Logic that is painted and comprised of many colors. This blends in with a black and white photo of the Brooklyn Bridge in the bottom left corner and all of these components center around the subject of the photo who is looking off into the distance.
The items in the photo are spaced out but still overlap to give the see-through effect. Michael Jordan sits atop the photo more so than blends, while the Brooklyn Bridge is squared and not tapered off to blend as much. The viewers eyes follow the progression of the blends as the photo carries their eyes from one component to another. There are leading lines with the shirt of the background album art coming up to the subjects face. The photo is offish as well with what appears to be two subjects due to the subject of one of the background images. The main subject is very close and the pieces put together make every inch count.
I wanted to show the interests of the subject in the photo and spread the images out in a neat and pleasing way. He enjoys basketball so I put Michael Jordan dunking in the corner where the basket fit well. He also listens to Logic so I incorporated album art from this artist because it had a nice array of colors and could fit well into the picture. It also had a small second element in the same photo of the album that makes it seem like there is a whole other element in the project as a whole. The Brooklyn Bridge in the bottom corner is black and white and shows his love of New York City while also sticking to the urban vibe of the project.
This project is a success because it covers the elements that were necessary while still having a nice flare. The images and elements fit well together as there is an urban feel to the whole project. The colors fit well together and there is a nice mixture of elements throughout the project. Although the picture of Michael Jordan could have been blended better. The composition points of leading lines, offish, get close, and make every inch count flow well together to make a neat, but compact image.
