ImageThe Simplest Story

Time limit: 15 minutes

Stories can be told with words or they can be told with pictures. They can even be told with pictures of words, a theory we are going to test today. Your task is to create a conceptual story made up of found words that you will photograph. An example would be if you found the word “birth” then found the word “live” then found the word “death.” This would tell a conceptual story of life in just three found words. Yours should be between 3 and 7 pictures. Take pictures of found words in your environment; words on walls, signs, wherever. Take shots of each and take them in the order of your story.
