YOP – taking stock

November 11, 2013


The latest set of images and texts are included in a pdf file. Just click on the photograph below: The frustrating thing about distance learning is that you long to be able to present your work in a seminar so that others can critically appraise it… posts will have to do, but I hope to […]

Early Morning Shoot Spitalfields and Whitechapel

November 9, 2013


My idea for the urban landscapes for Always Follow Ur Dreams!! is to shoot urban scenes without people. People immediately attract a viewer’s attention and I want to avoid this. Rather I want the viewer to take the ideas put forward in the text and project these into the photograph. This is easier said than […]

Antique Black and White Version of Video

November 5, 2013


One of the projects I have to complete for YOP concerns using Photoshop’s channel mixer to alter the mood of a digital black and white image.

Having re-read the last post and also thought about Catherine’s comment I have recast two of the texts. The first concerns racially motivated murders. The text seems to propose that despite memorials such as Altab Ali Park racially motivated murders are still all too commonplace… The second text relates to the National Front and the […]

Always Follow Ur Dreams!! – More texts

November 2, 2013


I have been researching the history of immigration in the East End with a view to finding texts which direct me towards possible images for this project. This rather turns my normal approach upside down – I usually make the photographs and then think about the captions. I am not simply looking for captions in […]

YOP – Plan of Study

October 31, 2013


I prepared an outline plan of study or Learning Contract for discussion with my tutor Sharon. We discussed this the other day and this post sets out my plan of action as agreed with Sharon. Having recently completed the Advanced module that is in effect an open book my initial reaction to the course notes […]
