Photographs inspired by literature.
Definition of literature: a body of written works. The name has traditionally been applied to those imaginative works of poetry and prose distinguished by the intentions of their authors and the perceived aesthetic excellence of their execution. (Britannica). Written works, especially those considered of superior or lasting artistic merit.
You could feature a literature genre such as, fantasy, romance and mystery, or a time period such as Victorian, Historic, SciFi – or types of literature such as novels and poetry.
Other literary photography examples could feature a bookish theme, by taking place in a library, featuring books themselves, or having typography back drops.
The human body is the structure of a human being. It comprises a head, neck, trunk (which includes the thorax and abdomen), arms and hands, legs and feet.
There may be ‘attachments’ to the human body that for that particular individual allows them to function to the best of their ability: eg leg prothesis, hearing aids, glasses. However the strength of the image and its story should come from the human part and not the mechanical addition.

The photograph is to be created from two or more images combined to create ONE finished image. There should be a cohesion in the combination, both from the narrative of the images to the technical skills used to create the photograph. The completed image should only use photographic source images taken by the photographer, but they could be combined and have post production in a software program, or could be created in-camera such as double exposures.
