Recently I've become infected by the Series virus. So I thought to start a thread named "series in 5" for posting of series of 5 photos that share a common theme (a color, an object, or whatever) where each photo and the combination tells a story. This makes it different from documentary work that tells a story that builds up. Besides, "documentary" is combined with "street" and series can cover a whole array of subjects, in color and BW. Feel free to use this thread to post your own series of 5. It may even get you out of a photographic slump. ;-) Here is my first attempt that was selected in the top-12 (but just outside the top-10) on a recent contest with appr. 60-80 applications. Not bad but I hardly got any feedback on how to improve the series. So I would to ask you how I could make such a series stronger and what to be aware of next time. This series is about people caught in reading, isolating themselves from what happens around them. Initially I wanted to take some photos of people using their phones in Manhattan without really thinking how to do it. In hindsight I should have prepared better. I had difficulty combining photos. In fact, most photos I liked did not particularly fit into the same series. So I ended up building some contradictions in the photos: you expect younger people using their phones and older people reading (a bit like the one in the middle) but this series shows otherwise. As said, C&C are welcome!
