Understanding figure-ground using 2D photography and photographic
manipulation to explore textures in the landscape, described by syntax and narrative.
In the chosen photos, the figure-ground is evident, as well as contrasting textures. In the first set of photos, the railing of a boat creates a “salt shaker” figure with the white wood, and with the ground, a torch-like character is noticeable. In the first three photos, a minor disruption is prominent above the designs, a rail had detached and was hanging over the designs. However, as the images were zoomed in the rail vanished, and the focus becomes the figure-ground relationship. The contrasting textures would include the wood from the boat and the metal surrounding it as a frame.
