This page is dedicated to my photographic work during my studies to receive my Masters in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography at University of the Arts London. Some of these projects will be minimally edited (or not at all) and all are responses to briefs given to me through my course. Some are small exercises, while some will be more large scale photographic works. I am posting all of this here as a visual journal of my educational experience and artistic journey.
MEDITATION | for this exercise we were told to meditate for twenty minutes and then immediately begin to take photos without thinking/preparing. It was an interesting experience and something I would like to revisit in the future.
SELF | for this weeks assignment I had to create work about myself. This could be by taking self portraits or by showing my personal items in my environment. My narrative starts by showing my background through a series of photos of me holding objects that are important to me interlaced with photos of me that show facial features that are genetic that I share with other members of my family. From there, I briefly show the process of putting on makeup, leading to images of me currently, as seen by people in London (where I reside). The last images are me stripping down from my background and my present self, pondering who I will become.
PLACE | This assignment was to document an interior and an exterior "public area." For the interior, I selected the Design Museum in Central London and focused on the geometry and details of the space. For the exterior, I captured a market in Angel, London. I chose this area because its variety of activity, from a daily market to restaurants and shops. There is zero post processing (including cropping and straightening) besides applying Fujifilm in camera colour profiles.
