So its been a good few weeks since we began Phonar, and this is almost like a diary entry of how Phonar has been treating me so far.
We had to create a website for one of our modules, so we were able to sign up and create one basic page with our new domain name. However, I didn’t want it to stop there, I wanted to create a professional website that I can use on my business cards, social media and can give to anyone who is interested in what I do.
Task One- Initial thoughts and Tweets
My initial reactions to receiving Gerry Badger as my assignment author was pleased because he is a writer and I too enjoy his essays, but I had know clue about his photography. When reading into his assignment and his photography, its completely different and it doesn’t perhaps initially interest me. However, I love a challenge, and this will perhaps bring out a way of thought that I’ve never had before.
Hashtag Photography Magazine// ‘The Top Six Uk Photo Exhibitions Happening this Spring’ // March 2016
This post is something different that I haven’t done before; a whole post on a selection of exhibitions. It’s an exciting opportunity; I can really research and incorporate my own style in to it!
Pete Brooks is an independent writer and curator, mainly focusing on prisons, and he uses photography as a key way to talk, inform and debate the issues revolving around prisons. Coventry University were lucky enough to have him not only come in but to also give a workshop. I went to both the talk and the first workshop of the day.
So the Natural Collection is been given an exhibition space at Lancaster Library and I’m so excited to get started!
So everyone has to undertake an exhibition for their module in my class, as you may have known mine is Trace, but there are three others that are happening. For me this is a really important part of the whole thing, going to everyone else’s and comparing and seeing what I can take from there’s that I didn’t. It’s a good way to review progress, learn new things and broaden my knowledge in photography.
