In this publication I wish to explore whether the subject of a photograph dictates its meaning, and with the subject removed, if the photo retains any substance. Using some of the 50 photos that I took on an analog camera, covering 50 different themes, I have removed the subject from each and placed it elsewhere in the publication. I am interested in whether negative space makes the viewer focus even more so on the subject, or whether the background is necessary to understand the overall meaning of the photograph. Through this, I hope to explore whether or not all meaning is removed by removing the subject.
