  4. 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…

    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…

    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…


  10. 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.

  17. 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…

  20. Show and Tell

    18 Oct 2018

    18 Oct 2018
