The photographer and university lecturer has released Visual Self-Help Volume 1: How to be Fun, the first in what he hopes will be a series of quirky guides that present some of life’s universal adages in pictures. Through the images, taken in locations such as Australia, Hong Kong, Essex and Italy, Rory DCS attempts to inject humour into what he considers to be an ‘aesthetically unpleasant’ genre. ‘For me, photographs are used to illustrate ideas,’ explains DCS. ‘Pictures and words are just tools to communicate concepts, and we use the tools that we are used to.’
