Too Early and Too Late

Too early refers to observational photography, where one might say that the actually thinking of the photograph happens before the idea, has been fully realised.

Too late refers to constructed, highly premeditated photographs made in a manner that has come to be defined as ‘directional’.

We were asked two photographs, one of which should be an observational photograph and the other had to be constructed.


This was the observational photograph I have taken, capturing a reality as it happened.


As you can see this is my constructed image, it portrays a created reality, manipulated for the photograph.
