Sun Photography

Purely experimentation and play. While I was in London I found some Sun Photography paper at the Hayward. Anyway considering my experimentations to date and my considerations on distorting archive footage I decided to see how this might work as part of my project.

Camera-Less Photography

I decided to look further into the techniques of Camera-less photography. These techniques may have the potential to give me the essence of objects that once were there but no longer. They show an image that never really existed, from the light dark and shadows. Always an original and not made from a negative. “Encountered as fragments, traces, signs, memories or dreams, they leave room for the imagination, transforming the world of objects into a world of visions.” http://www.vam.ac.uk/content/articles/c/camera-less-photography-techniques/ Chemigram: made in direct light through the manipulation of the surface of photographs using varnishes, oils or photographic chemicals for creative…

Mid Point Review Reflection

All the comments offered have provided me with much opportunity for reflection and a deeper understanding on how this work is being perceived. This exercise of the Mid Point Review is really going to help me when I talk about this body of work in the future. I have left it a few weeks before reflecting on these comments, so that the experience of the Mid Point Review is not so fresh in my mind and I have had time to inwardly process the comments before I reflect on them further. I’m not sure what those living would think on…

Mid Point Review Presentation

Original Script Comment Audio File Video(s) When I was about eight, my mum took me to a local reservoir where a village had been destroyed and the community moved on. 22 Previous Tryweryn Work This memory that has stuck with me for over 40 years and has prompted me to consider these events further for my latest body of work. 23 Before I started this course I reflected on the construction of the Reservoir and the effects on the displaced community of the time and the domesticity of the situation. 25 I became aware that in fact Tryweryn was not…
