Photography of Jacob F. Lucas
A single image can very rarely stand on its own, and tell a story. A set of images however, that is another thing entirely, and is one aspect of photography that makes it so unique. When images are placed together, arranged in a way that so vividly conveys the vision of the author, it's almost as though the story has been narrated before your eyes. Sometimes these stories are composed during a very short period of time; others are more long form. At the end of it all, is a coherent, flowing, visually engaging piece that challenges the viewer, and opens a conversation with them on the subject matter. It's a very powerful facet of the art form of photography.
Presented here, are some of my own stories, on topics which I found interesting, which I invite you to experience with me.
