The Last Photograph for Assignment 1 – Body of Work

Photograph 17 - Assignment 1 - Gentrification in Deptford

The last photograph for Assignment 1 - Body of Work was inspired by Mari Mahr and Noémie Goudal. I have looked at the work of Mari Mahr previously in Contextual Studies and I was appreciative of how realistically the object placed in front of the printed photograph looked, with just the slightest clue from shadows presumably deliberately placed alluding to the fact it was a fabrication of reality.

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.
