Although my experience lies primarily in stills, I believe photo and video have very different, yet equally powerful, abilities in transporting a viewer into the story. Lately, I have been fascinated by bringing a combination of the two into my own work.
To explore this, I’ve been dabbling in creating vignettes of video packaged alongside photo in a collage-like format. This visual storytelling strategy can be packaged both for Web, on Instagram in a gallery post, or any platform with auto-play capability. By creating these cross-media vignettes, I hope to capture the actions, energies and feelings of an experience and the characters within it to bring the reader and story closer.
