Create > The Gross Album

Create > The Gross Album

Goal:  Create 5 images that evoke a disturbing and repulsive response.

Studio Activity:
  • Set-up or locate a scene or subject inspired by the idea of grotesque..
  • Emphasize good composition (use the rule of thirds and simplified background)
  • Use grunge filters or color effects that amplify a gross tone or mood to the image
  • Get close up details and textures of cuts, scabs, rotting fruit, roadkill etc...


Trigger Mechanisms:  Gross, Details, Repulsive, “I just threw up in my mouth,”

Visual Examples:
The Grotesque in Photography >
The Macabre and Grotesque >
Un chien Andalou de Luis Buñuel >
