Whilst researching for information to complete Exercise 2.4, I came across Edward Ruscha's work 'Every Building on Sunset Strip'. Ruscha compiled a photo-book of continuous photographs of 2.5 miles of the Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles. The photographs were taken by using a camera fixed to his pick-up truck. Ruscha took a photograph of every building along the route and each was labelled with the building's number. By using the truck in this way, each photograph was equally spaced apart and the vehicle was in effect the 'photographer'. This technique meant that there could be none of the photographer's own preferences influencing the subject and composition of each shot.
I found Ruscha's unpredictable approach very inspiring. This is possibly something I would like to attempt for my second assignment.
