Step 4: My response to this assignment

Step 5: Critical Rationale

Unintended Consequences assignment gave me an idea that we actually can build up a body of work from existing work. It surprised me how many good images we all do have on our phones. I never thought of making a body of work using a phone camera, always seemed not professional to me. I am using my phone camera to freeze everyday, private moments. I would say that these images are very personal to me. However, for my professional career, I always use a proper camera. While I was flicking through phone images, I though these images are like a journey. If someone could look through these images they would know me better, as it is part of my identity. Photographs of places, of my family, of myself, of things I love, of food I like. One frame has repeated several times – my feet in different places. I decided this is going to be my body of work. As also I have noticed that I owe this phone since a year now, and haven’t deleted any images. I would title this body of work One-year journey. This body of work contains 6 images; all taken in different time spaces and never were intended to be a body of work.
