This was an experiment I had been meaning to try out for some time but just hadn’t got around to. It again comprises of arranging people within the scene but this time relies on the relationship with another composite from the same location. My aim when making this composite is to have the people moving through the scene frozen at the same points other people were photographed in the other composite.
I went out on this occasion to experiment some more with the placement of people in the scene, making up each composite. I have had some inspiration for this topic when I was reading up on an artist who has inspired me to make composites called Chris Dorley-Brown.
Since developing a strategy for photographing change (specifically regeneration and everyday change in Deptford) in a documentary style, I have been aware of one way that chance is affecting my images. Therefore I am interested to address the factor of chance in photography and to see whether chance can or is affecting my work in any other way.
I revisited the same two locations as found in WIP #2. The reasoning behind this was so I could experiment with how I place people within the scene.
I have attached my tutor report for Assignment 2 - Body of Work. The reason for making this post is so readers can look at the attached report and gain insights into what I think of my tutor's comments and how I intend to improve or experiment with the Body of Work based on my tutor's suggestions.
I have made two more composites for my Body of Work. They follow the same strategy of putting people who were there in the same place but at different times into the same image. However, this time I have revisited scenes I’d already photographed at to see how the scenes (and the people within them) had changed.
I have decided to introduce a 'Work in Progress' to my Body of Work blog so that I can show what I'm working on more incrementally instead of just assignments and other major work/research.
