Project 2 – Exercise – Poem interpretation

Choose a poem that resonates with you then interpret it through photographs. Don’t attempt to describe the poem but instead give a sense of the feeling of the poem and he essence it exudes.

Start by reading the poem a few times and making a note of the feelings and ideas it promotes, how you respond to it, what it means to you and the mental images it raises in your mind. Next, think about how you’re going to interpret this visually.

Poem choice

After reading so many poems online, trying to find one that resonated to me, I finally found this one. This one hit me hard because of my Husband being in the Army. I therefore based the images around this and how I feel when he gets deployed.

4000 Miles

The lines stitched into highways;
the never-ending seams,
on roads that are less travelled,
dividing you and me.

I wish I could unravel,
the fabric in-between,
and tear away the distance,
to bring you close to me.

– Lang Leav
