I thought these 4 images, although very different in subject matter and colours, were similar in the sense of framing and the closeness of the camera to the subject. it brought to mind images such as Frederick Sommers “Glass”
A quote from Stephen Shore’s the nature of photographs that accompanies the image “glass” says:
"a photograph may have shallow depictive space, but deep mental space"
I feel that although these images are deliberately “flat” due to selective focusing and a shallow depth of field, meaning the space depicted in the image is shallow, the “mental space” is much deeper as it makes the viewer question why these images were taken and what they are part of in the wider scheme of the series.
