L3 Study Hangout – 16/12/2019

On the 16th December 2019, I attended a Level 3 specific study hangout aimed at showing how theory and practice sides of Level 3 are integrated by building upon what we had learnt in the first study hangout on 24th October 2019. The focus this time was sharing our particular case studies for our projects along with what we think are our grand narratives to the rest of the group.

Assignment 3 – Experimentation with the Arrrangement of People Making up the Composites

For this assignment, instead of working on the body of work as a whole, I’ve concentrated on experimenting with one aspect of the project. The aspect is the way I arrange people in the composites, focusing on two locations specifically. It draws on the factor of chance in photography and plays upon it, with my arrangement of people staging the scene and creating potential narrative for the viewer.

Assignment 1 – Body of Work – Gentrification in Deptford

Photograph 17 - Assignment 1 - Gentrification in Deptford

This collection of mainly ‘straight’ photography has all been photographed in my local area of Deptford. Drawing on influences from the likes of Chris Dorley-Brown and Zed Nelson who have photographed East London, I have decided to document my area. This area shares distinct traces of gentrification which I have photographed and put together in a series. The series is intended to be viewed in order (read from top to bottom on this blog). The last photograph strays away from the concept of ‘straight’ photography and instead plays with photography and reality and was influenced in large part by Noémie Goudal.
