  1. Prioritising M.E/CFS Research for a photoshoot.

    21 Jan 2019

    After searching for some time for UK funded research, I made an appointment to speak to Dr. Charles Shepherd, Head of M.E Association. He kindly agreed to talk me through the research, 21 Jan 2019, for M.E/CFS associated with the M.E Association and help me to prioritise where I might look for…


  2. Aline Smithson Mentoring Session I

    07 Jan 2019

    I have covered Aline Smithson in a couple of blogs before, here and here, and mentioned that I planned a review with her for the 7th January 2019, during the last module. She was relatively easy to approach, her work has some similarities to my own but the main drawing…


  3. Final Major Project, Planning and Mapping.

    05 Jan 2019

    Over the Christmas break, I started to really think about what I really wanted to achieve out of my Final Major Project 1) What am I interested in? 2) What’s personal to me that I can make Universal for everyone?  3) What is practical for me to do and still manage pacing myself in order…

    08 Dec 2018

    Here you will find a short video which has been designed to sit alongside a series of 18 images for my Work in Progress, which Can be found here.  It is in essence the 18th image.  Work in Progress Assignment Brief_PH0704_Module IV_2018. Brief Submit a portfolio of practical work completed during the…


  5. Colour, Texture and My Peers

    06 Dec 2018

    Throughout this Module, I have been keenly aware of the great images produced by my peers, perhaps more so than in other Modules, both new people into this Module IV for me and development of skills of those around me in the same module.  I have watched with interest work…


  6. My work, ‘From one dimension to another’.

    03 Dec 2018

    This Module I, decided to move from the more literal 3D of photography and the literal use of photographic visual communication,  to a 2D art form that sits within a 3D form, (Or the other way around!). This is both about progressing my work and about researching contextually where I feel…


  7. Paris Portfolio Review II.

    01 Dec 2018

    Continuing on from my Portfolio Review in Paris in November and the suggestions and constructive advice I received, I decided I would develop a short video to go with my Work In Progress submission of 17 Images, making this video the 18th image. (Paris Photo Portfolio Review I) Earlier in the…


  8. Paris Photo Fair, Portfolio Review I.

    19 Nov 2018

    Creating images is one thing, showing images is another, whether that be for an exhibition, installation or simply a portfolio review. How you present your work matters in each case. Narrating your project, your journey with your images is key to getting the maximum from each.  Crawford Y. 2018. Series :…


  9. Pictures of Reference.

    05 Nov 2018

    This Module I thought I would record my work through contact sheets.  Managing a lot of ideas and learning that experimentation is great but focusing on work thats good and discarding whats not essential is equally as important.  So with 35 shoots this Module, minus the edits and re-shoots. Then on average…


  10. Aline Smithson I, Another View.

    23 Oct 2018

    Most intriguing, different and the same in many ways as my own work I discover more about Aline Smithson’s photography. For me this work makes me question my own, how I plan to story tell? How I plan to create and construct my images? What ultimate effect do I want…


  11. Strange Fire, Robert Calafiore

    23 Oct 2018

    I am definitely a little obsessed with X-ray and reverse images as a way of expressing human form in an abstract way. I have been inverting images since I started on the course and mainly applied this to my ‘absent landscape’ series with some success. Recently, however, I came across…


  12. Finding the beauty in the image.

    18 Oct 2018

    Finding the beauty in the images, somehow finds the beauty in the illness.   Having a little more time in this Module, due to me being a little more familiar with setting up a business, I have been able to free up more time for thinking about and creating my…


  13. Progress, Both Surreal and Abstract.

    14 Oct 2018

    Crawford Y. 2018. Series : Human Form. Hands Strangely this weeks activity on social media and my ultimate series of abstract images created for the purpose of seeing what creates interest, really got me thinking more abstractly and metaphorically about my work. How to best represent a journey of chronic…


  14. Helen Sear at Hestercombe.

    05 Oct 2018

    I have followed Helen Sear’s work since I started on the MA at Falmouth as much of the way in which she works with her ideas and post-editing are similar to my working technique. For example, Helen’s  reference to ’absent body’s’ and my ’absent landscapes’. Her Series ’Inside the View’…

  16. Concrete or Abstract ? Historical or Contemporary?

    28 Sep 2018

    If we consider that illness can be identifiable in the abstract, such as we might use art as a metaphor in education, it might be possible to describe through visual communication, emotions and symptoms such as pain, confusion and fatigue successfully, where the literal communication does not.  Yas Crawford Photography.…

  18. 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…

  21. C. A Book Binding Course and a second publication.

    06 Aug 2018

    As an extra-curricular activity for this module I decided to do a book binding course. To create a book that I will use for my second ‘Dummy Book’ and one that could later be developed into a more professional finished Photobook.  My first book is the original sketchbook ‘Sick Art’ from…


  22. In ‘Around’ and “Afterthoughts’ (on Participation)

    03 Aug 2018

    Further research into ethics, politics and documentary photography seemed appropriate to consider for a workshop, exhibition space and publication, to encompasses all the work that I am developing during this Module.  Martha Rosler in her work ’Homeward Bound’ and ’If you lived here…, an exhibition at the Dia Foundation in…

    So finally the workshop is complete for the day, but the ongoing and online Summer Workshop will continue as and when anyone with M.E/CFS or a long term chronic illness feels like being creative. I hope to run a winter series on-line only for the M.E Association as a way of…

    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…
