Panel reports which have been written by TJ are indicated as such next to the panel title.
We categorise instead the overall approach to practice; the sought out as opposed to the made. The Canadian photographer Jeff Wall, who has exhibited his work globally is credited with summarising these two poles as hunting or farming. The hunting opportunists tours, seeks, preys, to catch the moment whereas the farmer crafter cultivates, directs, positions, nurtures and poses.
So, are we seeing a hunted image? As we pause to analyse the view we apply the coded skill set to see that there are indexical devices. The title implies an approach, not a passing, but is it a helping hand, a dollar or just a moment of observation?
The woman herself is enigmatic; she may be homeless too, though she seems to have decent shoes, though little else belies wealth, so on balance we assume she is part of the disenfranchised. There is a water bowl but no dog; we assume there is a dog out of frame. There is a foot and what appears to be a peep hole in the box to the other end of the row of cardboard, but no eye to see.
A trolley sitting on the diagonal that drags the eye through the scene implies abandonment, but from what?

An initial view implies a balletic balance and movement as the Taylor-Johnson hallmark, like Wall, a highly controlled scene, but on more contemplation we see that the chair has not shadow, as indeed neither did the vampire, but the human shadow is singularly powerful.
Interrogating commentaries reveals that Taylor-Johnson was suspended by wires for a long period before achieving the suspended self portrait that perfected the angles.
But, returning to more settled territory, there is a more overt visual literacy known as meta pictures, the self referencing pictures about pictures. Often not subtle and indeed may be executed with some visual humour, here are three examples.
Number 19 on this link http: In poetic writing, meaning is not achieved by means of a consistent structure of controlled movements along lines made up of sentences.

Ikebukuro General Hospital—2nd & 3rd Floor Stairwell. He did it; it was done. Kida went up to one knee, momentarily heedless of cover, and watched with widening eyes as the (dead) man's falling body took out the man behind him.
