  2. Philosphies of Photography as a Fine Art Form.

    07 Dec 2018

     [Fisher : 2008] writes, ‘As Scott Walden, the editor of this collection of essays notes, photography “has become the darling of the avant-garde.” It appears that photography has become trendier than painting. One reason for this may be that while the nature and scope of painting has been thoroughly investigated…

  4. 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…


  5. Lens Culture Competition Review

    01 Dec 2018

    This was my first feedback from entering a competition and an exploratory way of getting feedback.   I used previous images from another Module’s work, since I entered this too early to use the latest images.

    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.

    From a background of story telling and a documentary background, he felt that he was unable to spend as much time as he could getting into the projects as he could. Carrying C41 film with him including the chemicals for processing until digital form was available. It changed the way…


  12. Stronger Together and a look at Sussman.

    26 Oct 2018

    “What intrigues me is the seconds it takes to take picture of something that has lived for millions of years, in which man plays such a tiny part” Crawford Y. 2018. I have for many years worked in large corporations, later running my own businesses, so networking became an every day usual…


  13. Laura Hynd, Guest Lecture.

    24 Oct 2018

  14. 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…


  15. 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…

  17. Sissel Thastum, A Freedom in Photography.

    09 Oct 2018

    Sissel Thastum discusses her BA Project, and others. For me this initial work of the wonderful images she produced of her mother and father in her home Denmark. To produce these images, its clear it was really important that she had a project she could connect to in a large…


  18. 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…


  19. 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’…


  20. 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…


  21. 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.…

  24. Maija Tammi & Difficult Photographs

    13 Aug 2018

    I agree with Tammi in her book Sick Art, summary that ‘photographs can condense time, dramatise it or freeze what would otherwise be gone or fleeting. That photographs are compared and looked at in relation to our physical surroundings and we can choose to look or not look. Importantly photographs,…


  25. Phenomenology and Katrin Joost

    10 Aug 2018

    For me this guest lecture covers many aspects of my thinking. To have it described in terms of phenomenology we must visualise the world through photography. Illness creates a broad concept for phenomenology and an example that Katrin used to think about it through the practise of photography. Photography about illness…
