Task 1- Taking Stock Step 1: Synopsis. Step 2: Artist portrait. John Chiara focuses his work on landscapes, mainly in America.

I took a photo of London which is mainly where I photograph to create a connection. Step 3: Photograph in the style of the Artist. Step 4: Complete task. “Only photography has been able to divide human life into a series of moments, each of them has the value of complete existence” This quote … Continue reading

p158 Jessica Ingram and Szymon Bielikowski

1: Synopsis 2: Portrait Jessica Ingram is an analyst. Her images prove that she is curious and fascinated by people, social environments and the surroundings. Her work, although full of empathy, also feels scientific. 3: In the style of the artist. Jessica takes photographs of people, but she also recognises (with images) that the surroundings of those people are integral parts in context of analysis. Her process does not alter vital parts of landscapes or portraits and with that has a documentary feeling to it. I tried to shoot in a similar style. 4: Complete assignment – ‘ Roll a … Continue reading

P. 194 Jason Lazarus and Shannon Dillon

Task 4- Impossible Pictures Step 1: Synopsis. Step 2: Artist portrait. To me, Lazarus is a perfectionist. I have determined this through his style of photography. To create this Artist portrait, I physically manipulated a self-portrait of Lazarus’ using makeup products. I did this because makeup is often used to hide flaws and create ‘perfection’, thus using it to manipulate the image emphasises Lazarus’ strive for perfection. Step 3: Photograph in the style of the Artist. Step 4: Complete task.   Step 5: Critical Rationale. When first reading this task I looked at interpreting it literally, to me this translated to ‘form or devise (a … Continue reading
