Instructor: Carin Goldberg

This proposal for Black and White Magazine, a magazine dedicated to only black and white photography, is visually inspired by the copyright photo credits. The proposal explores several features using the photography of: Alexander Rodchenko, Elliott Erwitt, Bill Brandt, and Ray K. Metzker. Each feature establishes a connective thread between the image and typography: Rodchenko's photographs of pioneers is juxtaposed against a list of russian names. Erwitt's photographs of animals from different countries is tied to souvenir postcard view folders popular during his time. Brandt's photographs of Daily Life in England during the second World War is explored with the vernacular of British ration books. And Finally, Metzker's composite photographs of his everyday men in urban cities is associated with punch-card typography that tells the story that inspired his photography.
