Week 5 1-2-2 Steph 20.02.20

Earlier today I had a really productive one to one with Steph. I showed her my work so far and we discussed possible ways of showing this work, the issues surrounding the ambiguous yet simultaneous specific readings of it , and the benefit of including text with the work to help viewers decipher my meanings. Steph put a number of recommendations up for photographers for me to look at -

I’ve had a brief look through all of these, and they are brilliant, and it’s really easy to see the connection to my work here.  I have to admit that I am starting to feel a little overwhelmed with all the artists and projects I have to look at, as the list stands in the 20′s already. I am going to take the weekend to sort through these and see which ones I am drawn too and which ones resonate with me, I need to start being more selective I think with what I am spending my time on viewing and reading, or rather how much time I spend on them. I need to give myself the space and permission needed to just look at things for the amount of time I need to, to make a decision on them, and then move on as there is so much to consume.

We discussed Kaylynn Deveney’s project, the day to day life of Albert Hastings ,

and how she had incorporated text of Aberts’ descriptions of the photographs, into the book of the work. This made me think of the artist at Arles , Anna Fox,  who showed her work ‘my mothers cupboards and my fathers words’ in the home sweet home exhibition in Arles. I was really drawn to this project when I saw it in Arles, and felt it was by far the strongest in that exhibition . The juxtaposition of the banality of the images, the prettiness of the visual language, next to the harshness of the words really draws you in. I am going to look at both of these projects in more detail as inspiration for an album.

We discussed these in reference to my work that I showed today lacking in a certain narrative without text , and the possibility of creating an album or zine as my WIP this module rather than a straight pdf of images as I have done in previous modules, enabling me to incorporate text with my images. Given that I plan on one of my outcomes from the FMP being an album, I think this would be a really good time to experiment with my delivery and presentation and how I can play with the way I convey the message I wish to show about our lives and educational philosophy.
