Second of the selections I'll be uploading from the Le Petit Prince
project, which you can read about more here: [link]
Part of my objectives for the photo series was not to just make accurate recreations of the illustrations, but also to present alternative takes on the characters. During the project presentation and defense, this was one of the panelists' favorites - a different look at the Geographer from Chapter XV.
I had long decided that my friend and fellow nighthawk Peter would make a great Geographer, but I wasn't able to get him to shoot with us at the studio. Luckily, ~b-e-c-k-y
had this photo of him in her stock account that fit my vision for this photomanipulation.
As I've mentioned previously, I've already finished the entire book but I won't be posting most of the other pictures online. My class will be having an exhibit of our works at The Podium, from the 24th to the 28th of March. I'll have the book there on display, and put up some large prints in the gallery as well. I'll update you guys with more exhibit details when I get them.
