  11. 11. Collage / Photomontage: Lesson 3 Arden is perhaps most well known in the UK for his photographic work from the 1990s that depicted the changing urban landscape of Vancouver as the city was being transformed by re-development with the boom in real estate. Arden has described these photographs works “...as battle scenes, like war landscapes, but it’s the economic war,”. Arden delves into the trash heap of history for images that reveal something about how and why we arrived at our present predicament.
  12. 12. Roy Arden: Roy Arden’s ‘Sweeper’ (below left) is a collage made up from all of the remnants swept from the floor of his studio. Task: Create a collage using the remnants of the last two lessons.
  13. 13. Composition: The arrangement of the parts of an image. Imagine your picture area divided into thirds both horizontally and vertically. The intersections of these imaginary lines suggest four options for placing the centre of interest for good composition. The option you select depends upon the subject and how you would like that subject to be presented. Triangles are a great way of grouping together elements of an image and organising them so they portray a certain feeling such as stability, aggression, instability, etc. If you want to create an unstable feeling in a photograph then a quick and easy way to do this is to include an upside down triangle, or at least a triangle with a weird rotation.
