  7. SS - 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,…

  8. SS - 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…

  15. SS - 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…

  21. SS - 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…

    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.
