Typologies are all around us!

Posted on Updated on

A typology is a study of types or groups of similar thing. In a typology everything is the same, yet different.

A photographic typology is a series of images shot in a consistent, repetitive manner and presented in a grid. Every image has its own space, equal to that of the other photographs and there is great attention to composition. The subjects are often mundane.


The first typology I created was one of circles. The idea was to make the viewer think about the presence of circles in our lives. You may not realise this, but circles are all around us!

For our second typology we were placed in groups of 6 and the assignment was to create a typology of the group.


I chose to make one of the feet of the group members. The images are all appropriated as each member of the group took a selfie of their own feet.
