Molly Woodward is a photographer who took part in the photography project "Vernacular Typography", documenting disappearing lettering and text found on street signage and posters found in cities.
While the lettering on the signs is the main focus of photographs, the composition of the photographs is unique as it cuts off half of the original word and the scale is enlarged. Woodward also uses tilted angles to capture other parts of the building in the foreground, which helps to break up the image, for example the windows, bricks, or another sign. Woodward has used cropping and distorted angles to capture the words, to make the text in the image ambiguous to its viewers.
Personally I like the idea of capturing the text on signs which are falling apart, which Molly Woodward does in her images. I think the muted, undertone colours on the signs give the photographs a more relaxed, urban feel which I will try to capture in the colour scheme of my own images by taking similar content of old signs. Woodward's work is more realistic and a lot less edited than Ed Fella's because the context of her work is text from modern-day while Fella's is aspects of America in text through different time periods, so he has used warmer tones and filters to capture a vintage-style, which I will do in my own. I will also incorporate the distorted angles Molly uses in my own images to make the text more ambiguous.
