Legacy Project — Sigmund Freud

Brief:

Combine images with text to create a poster representing the legacy left behind by a famous person. 

Thought Process:

I decided that a dream-like composition was most befitting of Dr. Sigmund Freud, most famous for his accomplishments in psychoanalysis, psychotherapy, and dream analysis. But because many photos of him at the time were in black and white, I was not left with many options. If I had done the poster in black and white, it would have been much too dreary, and so I decided on a brightened sepia tone contrasted with dark values to create a feeling of drama and history in the poster. I coupled the lighting with an almost ethereal handling of Dr. Freud’s portrait to really drive home that dream-like feeling.
