This is the kind of grid I am looking to put up for my show. I think each picture will be the normal 8 1/2 X 11 size, so I can make a giant grid of these. I will also be incorporating the text I write. I'm still not sure how I want to mesh the text in....don't know if I want to write on the actual images, print on them, write on something aside from the images....any suggestions?
Once I finish printing all of the images I will really figure out my arrangement, looking at how the compositions of each connect with and compliment or contrast each other. There is some color variation in the images, due to variations in skin color, which I think will add to the grid, giving it a different depth than what the images already have to offer.

There was something about the way he touched her curves, that she couldn't understand. In a bed ,they lay, in his sleep, a hand gravitates to her girth. The ignorance he held was pitiful. His eyes like those of a puppy dog haunted her as she slept. The ins and outs raced through her lop sided mind, she disrupted his sleep with a jerk of nerves, they doubled in her sleep, because she kept them so well hidden in the light of faces. He told her once he couldn't figure out what was going on in her mind. Truthfully- It was intriguing he said....Sarcastically- a mystery she said.

There once was a time in her life where no one could find her. She retracted so far inside, the look on her face scared people away from asking what was wrong, because they could see that she knew what pain was and unsettlement.. and no words could cure that. Everything about her body screamed anger, but she couldn't create sound to deal with it, and she just wanted the satisfaction of telling him, like speaking in tongue, his mouth was full of sweets, rotting his teeth. What a horrible person you are.

I like the composition of this image, the lines and angles have my eye floating along. Ethan and I talked about taking the images of humans and maybe making them look more like mannequins and vise versa... Not that I necessarily think I made the body (in this image) look more plastic, but I started to manipulate the skin in a different way. There is a mysterious feel to this image that I'm attracted to, usual a theme in my past photo projects.

So there are a couple things going on here, Ron and I have been talking about taking an abundant of tight shots, Mannequin vs Human, but printing them out rather small. It would over be a collection of well thought out, rich compositions.
The second image of the purple mannequin is a bit more traditional, Its almost an extension of what I was doing in Digital with the Mannequins. The two images left, I am exploring more with
photoshop, as I did in Digital, which I really enjoyed the process and the outcome. Like, I said these images are still in the process of being worked on, I will add more as I begin new ones, and as others get closer to a finished state.
