Being: New Photography 2018 Review

The Being: New Photography 2018 exhbit featured at the Museum of Modern Art showcased a lot of interesting pieces. One of the pieces which appeared to be normal family photos had a very interesting back story. On display across two walls were over 2000 photographs of child birth and the process of going into labor. One photographer that stood out to me the most was Stephanie Syjuco. I like the use of patterns and how the subjects are wearing clothing that have the tags still attached which conveys a deeper message.

Homework 1

I was drawn to this photo because of its symmetry. The subject is framed by the the staircase on both sides of the picture. The focus is on the center where the subject is located. Although the subject is not perfectly centered, the size difference between the subject and the rest of the photo is what makes the subject the focal point.
