  1. Messum’s, Tif Hunter & Tin-Types

    16 Oct 2018

    Drawn to an exhibition ‘Images’ which runs till 21st Oct 2018 at Wiltshire’s Messum’s wonderful art and multi-purpose galleries, I was lucky enough to experience both the exhibition and the wonderful production of tin-types with Tif Hunter.  The Exhibition ‘Image’ is definitely worth a visit if you have the time. Wonderful…


  2. 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…


  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. 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. 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. 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. On David Salle, Ideas for Curation and my future work.

    23 Aug 2018

    After speaking to my tutors and colleagues and thinking about future exhibitions and installations I am referred to David Salle by one of my peers. David Salle is an American painter, printmaker and stage designer who helped design post modern sensibility. I am looking at his paintings presented in diptychs…


  8. Aurel Kolnai on Double Intentionality

    13 Aug 2018

    How do we face, understand and create imagery of emotions integral to illness, as part of the journey of recovery or just in order to understand our illness better?  Aurel Kolnai, a 20th Century philosopher and political theorist, writes on disgust and our aversion to it.  ‘But for all of its…


  9. 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,…


  10. 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…


  11. 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…


  12. 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…


  13. 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…

  15. 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…


  16. Ethics, Aesthetics and Artistic ends

    22 Jul 2018

    Working through development of my workshop and exhibitions, I become more aware of my audience. What will they get out of it? How will they respond? Will they anticipate the communication of ME/CFS or chronic illness? Will they relate to the images? Will I offend them in any way? Will I do…


  17. 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…


  18. 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…


  19. 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…

  23. Sichy on Sebastiao Salgado & Aesthetics.

    14 Mar 2018

    My immediate reaction to these images, and before I had read anything on Salgado, was one of a strong religious reflection. One of iconic images and symbols we associate with Christianity; Jesus on the cross, labourers, the masses, the use of wood or sticks, the clothing.. His photographs take on a…


  24. A Sea of Images

    06 Mar 2018

    A Sea of Images, Spencer Tunick Photographer During this week’s coursework, I am struck by the following two quotes from Grundberg. Grundberg (1999), p216, ”No longer are photographic images regarded as ‘mirrors with a memory’ merely reflecting the world back at us in a simple one-to-one translation. Rather they construct
