I think a title panel is necessary in the grid. If I was walking past this, I would be a little confused and assume this was a piece on camping. Tonight I am going to work on the title panel. It needs to blend into the grid, but I think a pop of color is good.
Adrianne and I spent some time today talking about which images work best for the gallery & the whole homeless experience. I have edited it down to these.
"Walking home from Whole Foods- I live just past the horizon": the establishing image; sets the tone, mood, and gives the tent community context.
"My stately home and storage tent": Shows the tents and his ironic captions off the bat.
"Inside my tent looking out": The most important photo, and my favorite. Love the caption, too.
"Organization is Key": Gives you an insider's perspective of the inside of his tent, details in this photo important
"The Essentials": Another insider's peek into the communal tent kitchen.
"Yes, I have to wash all these, but not in the fire pit." Great perspective, not an image we see often.
"Snow Crushed the Tent": Highlights the drama, struggle, and it's a strong image.
"My new place- had to downsize": Shows his sarcasm and most importantly, his determination to move on.
All photographs will be printed on matte paper, 22x17, and hung with thin silver pins.
