Crime? Project - The final cut... / by Neil Alexander

As part of the A-level I've been embarked on, I've been working on a project based around the theme "Boundaries". In light of the recent goings on with completely innocent photographers being tarnished with the "terrorist brush" (see numerous articles on the BJP for example - here, here or here), I chose to focus on the suspicious nature of people, and how often their snapshot vision of a scene is interpreted in a completely incorrect manner. So I decided that to try and highlight this flaw, I was going to shoot a series of potential crimes in progress, in various locations, with different models and lighting. I garnered a rather alarming looking list of possible offences, and tried to construct scenes in my head and then on paper for how I would like the result to look. These images are the final selection that I have submitted as part of my coursework.
