week eight: nighttime

Chris and I have been taking photographs and creating diptychs for our photomot project for two months now. We’re loving it and hope you are too. If you have any suggestions for words you think would inspire us please leave a comment.

the typography of new orleans

As you know I’m crazy about letters – typography, monograms, fonts, letterpress, you name it. In fact, my new diptych project, photomot, incorporates typography into photographs that my friend Chris and I take each week.

Maybe it’s because of photomot, but I feel my eyes have been implanted with magnets that can’t help but be drawn to a bold modern ‘a’ or an elusive cursive ‘z’. It doesn’t really matter what it says, I just look at the curves, the colors, the simplicity or complexity, the layout, and how they all work together. I’ve also been lamenting the scarcity of good fonts in my collection – it’s time for a few key acquisitions to spice things up.

Regardless, New Orleans, especially the signs in the French Quarter and engraved marble crypts in the cemeteries gave me a great deal to drool over. Any favorites from this collection?! Or any favorite fonts I should check out for my collection?!
