Easter holidays – FINAL WIP / ALBUM LAYOUT 07.04.20
I have yesterday and today , after some last minuet hurdles and bumps, finalised my WIP, my text and album layout, and ordered my album which will be my final outcome for this module, and I am over the moon with it ! It felt like everything came together into one cohesive , and important story at the end, and I am so glad that I carried on shooting when I had been finished with my WIP earlier in the module. The many extra images I took, the few extra images I included , and most importantly I think, the unfolding story and the text finished off this modules WIP, and my project to a standard it just wouldn’t of been had I not done that.
In the end, circumstances meant that I included quotes from various educators, authors and government sources, and letters that I have been writing over the past couple of weeks trying to sort out the catastrophe that is this years exam season for home educating and private candidates. It includes very personal statements and reasons for how these new developments have been effecting our family, things that are only effecting home educators, and stories that will never be told otherwise.
I am going to do a separate write up and critical review of all of my images that I included in the album and an indepth look at how I sequenced them in the album, why some were big, some were small , some were more prominent and others weren’t, some were on a double page spread on their own, and some were sequences with other images. I will also be explaining the text I have included within the book more as well, as it is the text that glues everything together and tells the story of what happened to our family, and how in a few days my boys lives may of been altered forever.
This book has become a memory for my family. Something I never set it out to be at the start of the module, but it is something that evolved and came together almost instinctively and without any push from me at all in the end. It is a story that nobody else that I know can tell, and probably only a couple of hundred families across the UK can relate too, but a story that important for everyone to know !
