Thirsty for Typography #7

The First 47 is the creative footprint of Dublin-based photographer, filmmaker and designer Alex Synge and the seventh "Thirsty for Typography." Not only has Alex's work been exhibited in Dublin, London, Chicago and LA, it has also appeared in publications such as Semi-Permanent, Pencil Fight and Art Prostitute. I wasn't as impressed by the shape of the letters or the playful inconsistencies of the repeating letters as I was touched by the strong concept behind this piece. The link between the image and the words is undeniable and infinite, creating a different emotion for each viewer, may it be happiness or sadness or anything in between. To see all of The First 47's portfolio — which actually focuses on photography, make sure to visit their website.
