Formalism: prioritisation of concern with form rather than content. Focus on composition and the material nature of any specific medium. (Wells, 2009, p.347)
A series of images taken around Blenheim Palace – a formal place in itself. I focused on using the strong diagonals to lead the eye through the frame in many of the images. Where people are present, I consciously placed them as a focal point (images 3 and 5). Image 1 (a cliché) is arranged to show the shadow of the grand archway, with the lighted gate leading to the outer courtyard.
