when you search for anime. manga photographers, nothing but cosplay comes up, perhaps this is because not very many photographers have explored these as a subject. People usually take it for what it is and move on. So i’m going to have to use a lot of loosely based inspirations.
Also i haven’t really looked into photographing the narrative of Anime/ Manga. Or interoperating it in a different way. I did this in a previous project based on peter pan, so maybe i could explore this before taking my finals. representing the story through other objects. Not using straight forward portraiture, because i’ve done this recently. maybe i could come back to this, but for the minute, lets focus on 1 page of an anime and photographing it in different ways.
