  1. 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…

    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…


  3. 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'…

  5. Concrete or Abstract ?

    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.…

  7. 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. 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…


  11. 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…

    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…

  15. Esther Teichmann

    15 Jul 2018

    Ester Teichmann is an artist whose practice includes writing and curation. As I develop my work and my images I am drawn to Teichmann’s work as a way of narrating a story in one image. Her carefully constructed images, open up several projects within a project, enabling the audience to…


  16. 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…


  17. 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…

  19. 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…


  20. Wired and Tired.

    28 Jun 2018

    For my ongoing photographic work on M.E/CFS and chronic illness, I am interested in the overactivity of the body responding to stimuli it seems of almost any sort! The confusion the brain gets itself into, the mix up in central sensitivity causing the body to think it is awake at night and…

  22. 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…


  23. Biomarkers & Spatial Vision

    20 Jun 2018

    Since I have had a couple of not-so-good days, I thought I would revert to writing about M.E/CFS. Its important for me to have a scientific element to my photography and so I thought it would be a useful exercise to refresh myself on the science and see how I…


  24. Portes et Textures de Toulouse

    10 Jun 2018

    Portes et Textures de Toulouse Photobook. I wanted to keep this project simple and of my own design and in recognition of the simplicity in which Ed Rushca produced his small photobooks.

  25. 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…
