When I think back on the courses I have completed thus far, People-and-Place and Landscape were the standouts, I enjoyed the subjects and the process. Social Documentary has for me been a nightmare, I dislike the over-emphasis on people as the only subject and cannot find an angle that let's my own views come out in my work. I have lost any spark of me. Assignment 4 was disappointing, good learning, but clearly a suggestion that I am not getting along with the course direction
So I now make the decision to reverse direction and return to the comfort of landscape, but I hope using this as a way to document society. On Saturday I got out with my camera and started once again the process of documenting Richard-Strauss Strasse:
My problem is going to be the essay element, making the photographs hang together. I am not telling a temporal story, I am trying to paint a picture of a culture. I understand that as an essay, I hope my tutor does too?
Anyway, clock is ticking I now have 3 weeks left to finish this...
