Think, Pair, Share: Elisa Chang
By Danni Ujimori and Sam Skinner
Her concept is mostly tourists, older ones with unusual looks and most likely an unusual personality. Their mannerisms and their outfits stand out between everyone. She finds people who ars the definition of tourism in Hawaii. The differences thematically are that she goes from the beach to the streets between the two projects. One project is on the streets, with the buildings and the Chinatown people.
I notice the sign, the people sitting in the corner give it a nice effect of a late night. I also notice the wall where you order your food. It’s the only really cool color in the photograph. They contrast because you have the nighttime background and then the cool interior colors that stand out from the roofline and the neon sin.
The two following pictures revolve around the rainy day. She uses the gray scale to create an environment and feeling for the viewer. The big picture is she likes to use people with the buildings, some sort of connection between the two, whether it’s the environment, a person with a house, etc. The images explain a narrative of a person’s expression to the expression of the location. The story changes because each picture holds its own little backstory.
