While I was shooting the below shots, all of the forced subjects seemed to have a wee one line quip to make, just before taking their mark. After the first two I started writing them down.
It dawned on me that maybe they should actually be a part of the images themselves. I know this might raise the good old text / no text debate but I wouldn't mind hearing what people think.
I am kinda thinking that the text should be a part, it links nicely with the micro relationships and the unease of human composure in front of the camera. I mean it's like they all had to throw a little excuse at me, to reassure themselves and to warn me.
I imagine the layout something like this. Obviously not looking as shit. I'd give the typeface more than 5seconds thought for a start.
