I got interested in Sequences after reading a chapter in Tony Worobiec’s book Photo Art: In camera, Darkroom, Digital, Mixed Media. Although the name implies a progression in time – and indeed narrative or linear storytelling sequences have been popular since the late 19th century – they also include the juxtaposition of two or more images in a Series which can unite to create a a new meaning. Sequences/Series fall somewhere between an image being an entity in its own right and being part of a larger collection of images that tell a story in a more complete way.
Sequences are to me like haiku. Just moments. I was dissatisfied with the single photo since I was unable to bend it into a further statement. In a sequence it is the sum of the pictures which implies what a single photo cannot say. Duane Michals
Some of my sequences – which are really more series than narrative – follow.
