“The Legographer” Project: LEGOgrapher Travels The World In 365-Day.
[sc:text1 ]UK-based photographer Andrew Whyte has documented the adventures of a brave lone LEGO photographer in his “The Legographer” photo series.
This little Lego man, dubbed the Legographer, has spent a year travelling around Britain and shooting photos. Unfortunately, the pictures he took were fictional, but his big brother, human photographer Andrew Whyte, followed the little plastic guy around and documented his endeavour on an iPhone 4S.[sc:text2 ]
“The Legographer” was part of a 365-day project, which seems to be more and more popular among the artistically-inclined these days. It means that Whyte pledged to create an image a day for a year, and it’s the reason why he chose to use a smart phone to create the images – using his more expensive camera equipment would have made taking those everyday photos far more time-consuming and far less convenient.
For my first attempt at a 365 series I knew it had to be portable and spontaneous — my commercial photography, long exposures at night, is rarely either of these. My mobile phone fitted this agenda perfectly and had the added bonus of having a much closer minimum focusing distance than any of my Nikon gear. That’s how I get up close to the figure and force the perspective to make him look life-sized.
