You are probably thinking how does John Hinde relate to my research towards my final project about macro Lego photography. Well, I am going to create mini film sets with my Lego and according to the book I am reading ‘Our True Intent is all for your Delight’ The John Hinde Butlin’s photographs, John set up the images for his postcards before he photographed them. So he is creating a set the same as I will be, just with real people instead of Lego. I really like John Hinde’s work, I first came across his book because Martin Parr (one of my favourite photographers) had written the introduction to his book. After looking through all the images I found I really loved Hinde’s work and I enjoyed reading how he created each image.
I know its going to take a lot of time and effort to set up my Lego scenes, but using Hinde as inspiration I know I can achieve what I want.
