Speaking Without Words

by Disphotic

I consume a gross amount of images, and a large number of them end up gathering on my laptop like visual flotsam, clogging up the empty spaces on my desktop. Gradually they get relocated to a folder for possible recall or reference at a later date, although in practice most are never viewed again. With this in mind and searching for a way to revisit some of these images again I began a conversation with fellow ‘tog and documentary graduate Amin Musa using images alone. It’s a sort of free association, taking turns to respond to the other person’s chosen picture in any way we choose, thematically, aesthetically, matching like for like or replying with visual opposites or jokes. Here is a small sequence:
