This assignment was to pick a song and express it in the form of a poster by using typography and images. Music is a language and everyone translates it in different ways. Some may laugh, some may cry. Sometimes beautiful melodies can tell terrible things, while sad songs can be cheerful. We were encouraged to explore different photography techniques by using various materials, shapes, objects and colors.
I choose the song Lust sung by a famous Danish indie rock band The Raveonettes. The song itself is slightly dark, but from my understanding it is talking about an insane love and there is still some hope. Photography can be very personal in the way one shoots a single image. I am taking this chance to express my true feelings about this song through images. By using a projector and combining photos, I wanted to express the idea of hope in the dark.
