This is my undergrad graphic design thesis project that started out as being a book capturing the likes of me, publisher and photographer, Clarese Grant. But as the project unfolded week by week and more photographs were taken, it essentially turned into a book of street photography. As a photographer sitting in the passenger side of a car, I was able to capture the different views that I found the most inspiring. The viewer will also find that some of the pictures in the book have been taken outside of a car’s perspective, enabling me to focus on the smaller details. While you’re glancing through the book, you may stumble upon a few questions as to why the book was developed the way it was. In response to majority of those questions, it was made for your pure aesthetic enjoyment.
A very important part of this project was my customized, hand-painted Polaroid photo album; the secondary media form that went hand-in-hand with my project. Because it was such an intense project that was never dormant for very long, the polaroid style media represented a yin-yang of captivating those instant humane and personal moments that you keep in your wallet to glance at every once in a while.
Inspired by the different colors of my book, a particular picture inside the book, & my love for cake, I decided to add a yummy giveaway to my gallery event. These cake pops were baked, dipped, sprinkled, wrapped and hand crafted by me for the special night in which I debuted Wanderer to the world. P.S. I never ate a cake pop again after that night.
