  1. 4. Show and Tell

    18 Oct 2018

    I wondered what is that stimulated my interest in Photography and it was down to two things. My father was an amateur photographer enthusiast who captured mainly, our numerous holidays on slide, that we were able to watch over and over at slide show evenings. I loved the slides and…

    Crawford Y. 2018. ‘Millions Missing’ Campaign Crawford Y. 2018.

  3. Vikki Forrest and Book Publication

    05 Oct 2018

    Vikki’s guest lecture consolidated a lot of questions I have been trying to think through in relation to possibly producing a book. Completing the Book-Binding course in May was really helpful in understand this lecture. You can find a link here to the reference in my CRJ from the last…


  4. 2. You are a business.

    03 Oct 2018

    This week we focus on the early parts of developing a business plan and I am grateful for this as it starts to focus me down on potential areas for my work. You will see below I am keen to have a multi-disciplinary approach to my work and start discussion…


  5. 1.From Here to There.

    30 Sep 2018

    This week 1 of work has been a week of trying to position myself amongst reading that is both a little unfamiliar and all too familiar. References given to work about the photography industry is new to me, but references on setting up a business or working in the commercial…


  6. Where am I now? - Module IV

    27 Sep 2018

    After a challenging Module III, which took us through three different presentation surfaces (a publication, an exhibition and a workshop) and a range of camera techniques and exploration, I found myself a little exhausted and no room for free thought! So the break was welcome and I managed to squeeze in…

  10. Welby Ings on Heruistics and being Immersive!

    30 Jul 2018

    With all the activities I have to do this week, I am starting on with writing up the Guest Lecture, by Welby Ings, Professor of Art and Design, AUT University, New Zealand, as this talk has turned my attention in the most dramatic fashion. It has not just supported my thoughts on…


  11. A. A view on Phototherapy as a Workshop

    22 Jul 2018

    HOW TO? is my big question.  Yas Crawford. 2018. The Art of Chronic Illness. Chance C. 2018. Soul apothecary I am hugely aware that the lack of a way of managing the workshop will result in no focus and so have created abstract images on which the participant is free to…


  12. Three Surfaces, My Overall View

    15 Jul 2018

    For more detailed information, see individual blogs entitled ‘A Workshop, B Exhibition & C Publication ’.  This week has been great in pulling my ideas together, for the Exhibition, Workshop and Publication. Having been a little more involved with the organisation of these three projects in isolation, I now realise, the importance…


  13. C. Publication. A photographers Sketchbook.

    10 Jul 2018

    I will probably develop this blog or write a follow up,  in a little while and over a period of time and as my publication develops. I have planned and started a ‘Photographers sketchbook’ as sketching out my ideas and writing notes has been one of the biggest stimulations for my work…

  15. A. Workshop. ‘The Art of Chronic Illness’ Workshop.

    05 Jul 2018

    I guess, this weeks work has enabled me to think more globally about my work. When considering the three elements of surfaces and strategies,  A) a publication, B) a second exhibition and C) a workshop. I have really had to think about my audience and what they might get from each of…

  17. Strategies of Freedom

    28 Jun 2018

    In this weeks activities we have looked at ’freedom’ as a photographer. How much freedom do we have, what we can induce, how much we can trick the camera and how much we are confined by that same camera and this type of apparatus.  A.Yas Crawford, 2018. My daughters travels…


  18. Strategies of Sharing, cont….

    21 Jun 2018

    I really wanted to add my thoughts on how this weeks activity has really challenged me and my way of thinking through my photographic work, particularly for workshops and exhibitions.  The biggest issue I realise is about my own assumptions. Thinking I am fairly open to flexible thought processes, I…


  19. Global Breakfasts.

    21 Jun 2018

    This week activity was to produce a Zine. This meant working collaboratively with a group of people from the course, on a subject of our choice.  The task of choice 'Global Breakfasts' was to conduct a collective call for images over three days, gathering images from others from all over the…


  20. Strategies of Sharing

    20 Jun 2018

    The activity of sharing, collaborating, participating, if it is collective and co-operative has many differing views. Here is a little that I have gleamed. It extends to much more than I describe below from this weeks activity. There is also the requirement or voluntary participation which has many different connotations…


  21. Strategies of Remediation

    14 Jun 2018

    This weeks work, is about ‘Remediation’ and ‘Appropriation’ of images. Remediation being the refashioning of one medium into another, whilst Appropriation being the sourcing and using all or parts of images from other sources for work of your own. This could be from commercial sources, personal archives, navigable or found…


  22. Strategies of Looking

    14 Jun 2018

    For me, Week 1 work on ‘Repeat Photography’ and ‘Re-photography’, and I am still considering the actual difference, is curious. It mainly enticed me into thinking about time and place; where my M.E sufferers are now compared to where they might have been, where they are now compared to a place…


  23. Enter the Academy & Professional Location.

    22 Apr 2018

    Art in Unusual Places Paintings roughly reflecting on humans and human habits, but mostly viewed by cows! This is probably not a place I would exhibit my images, although it raises questions on where to and how to attract my audience to view.  Questions I ask myself? Will the venue…


  24. Peer Review and Video Presentations.

    08 Apr 2018

    This weeks activity was to prepare a video that critically reflects and contextualises my own practice. This is in preparation for the final critical review and to be reflective on my CRJ to date Since I was already preparing work for my critical review, this wasn’t too onerous a task as it…

    Daniel Gustav Cramer, Woodlands_Trilogy Daniel Gustav Cramer, Underwater_Trilogy Daniel Gustav Cramer, Mountain_Trilogy Reflections on David Gustav Cramer’s ’Trilogy’. Woodland, Underwater and Mountain Themes.  This weeks activity really highlighted for me the importance of contextualising my work.
