Homage to Icons
This is a game of "Spot the Icon". The premise was to combine a series of well-known iconic nude photographs and paintings like a collection.
There is no pretence to make the boxes photo-realistic, though their shape and angles are defined. It is meant to be seen as a construction.
The regularity of the grid sets the whole presentation as of a collection, rather than a montage for example. At its extreme it could be classed as a "dodecaptych" (that's a 12 panel diptych!).
Removal of all setting and possible distractions focuses down each panel into its core representation.
There is not attempt to copy the setting of each individual original, but to abstract the pose from each.
Maintaining a consistent camera position, focal length and focus point throughout the series is crucial here.
Each figure needs to be sized consistently against the others.
The camera height is adjusted for each row. The top row has a camera height lower to the floor. The central row is at tummy height, the bottom row is above head height.
Shifting the camera height like this gives the sense of faux perspective looking into the collection, but also allows the bottom row images, which are predominantly on the floor images to work.
Challenge for you is to identify all twelve images.
