The third task of #phonar is to create a multimedia narrative video with our own photos and soundtrack of one of the unphotographable serie from Michael David Murphy.
Each text refers to a photography which does not exist but could have been. They all start by the caption ” this is a picture I did not take”. Have a look or instead a read they are very nice.
I choose the woman with kleenex:
“This is a picture I did not take of a rain-soaked woman with white hair in a white jogging suit with red stripes down the legs, walking toward me in a downpour, carefully pressing a white kleenex against her bloody nose.”
It evoked me a symphony of red and white. Having taken several shots of rain in Thailand for a project of time-lapse, I knew I had some of the material. the rest are shots made for this project.
The first version includes a personification at one point, The second is all suggestion making it easier for the viewer to construct his/her own image.
