In my latest artistic case study I plan to explore Obsession in psychological, visual and emotional depth. I've begun researching obsession- it's pivotal nature, as dipicted in literature and defined online, and whilst doing so i've discovered ample photographers who in their lifetimes became fixated on capturing every moment on film, whether it be of wives or children or of their surroundings. Here is my favourite, a photograph (untitled, 1960s- 80s) by Miroslav Tichý:
All of Tichý's photographs were taken by cameras he constructed himself, made from cardboard, paper and other materials which he went to great lengths to obtain; the result of this determination is beyond admirable, simultaneously making me more eager to try out the pinhole camera DIY kits i've accumulated from birthdays and Christmas.
Additionally, this photography by Alexander Rodchenko in the 30's, the master of severe angles:
-Simple says it all.
”I want to take some quite incredible photographs that have never been taken before… pictures which are simple and complex at the same time, which will amaze and overwhelm people. I must achieve this so that photography can begin to be considered a form of art.”
