A TYPOGRAPHIC EXPLORATION ANALYZING AND COMPARING TWO PHOTOS: HERB RITTS, "TONY WITH BLACK FACE" (1986) AND RICHARD AVEDON, "WILLIAM CASBY, BORN IN SLAVERY" (1963). INFORMATION WAS GATHERED THROUGH RESEARCH ON THE IMAGES, THE PHOTOGRAPHERS AND THE CONTEXT OF THE IMAGES. INFO-GRAPHICS WERE MADE TO STUDY COMPOSITION, COLOR, LIGHT AND SHADOW. BOTH PHOTOGRAPHS WERE RECREATED AS TYPOGRAPHIC COMPOSITIONS AND EVERY DESIGN CHOICE MADE IN THE PUBLICATION WAS A RESULT OF THE RESEARCH DONE ON EACH IMAGE. LASTLY, A SELF PORTRAIT COMBINATION OF BOTH RITT'S AND AVEDON'S PHOTOGRAPH WAS REQUIRED.
