Pg. 169 Nadav Kander & Irini Georgiades

Step 1: Step 2: Critical Rationale 20 – 21 April 2018 is a body of work created in response to Nadav’s Kander assignment Making, Not Taking. This body of work can easily confuse the audience, giving them the choice to choose if the photos are travel snapshots or a landscape. 20 – 21 April 2018 both consists of landscapes and snapshots captured by me, documenting my friend’s trip to the UK. Snapshots and landscapes are all mixed up within the book allowing the audience’s mind to travel within the book. This assignment was both focused on playing with the lighting … Continue reading

Pg. 169 Nadav Kander & Kamile Essi

Step One. Follow the steps of the assignment, interpreting and adapting as needed, focusing on the elements of visual language Step Two. Critical Rationale Nadav Kander’s task emphasises on the process of making, not taking and the validity of a photograph. I chose to take on this assignment as I was interested to see the results that followed when capturing a subject matter that I do not usually photograph. When it came to conducting the photo-shoot I took the measures to make sure that I was fully immersed in the task, with no rush in getting the pictures completed. I wanted … Continue reading

P.169 Nadav Kander & Olivia Harris

Task Three Step One: Complete the Assignment Step Two: Critical Rationale For task three I decided to use Nadav Kander’s assignment, Making, not Taking. For this assignment I immediately had an idea to mind, I felt that I had to include my background in art & design as I liked adding additional things to my photographs when I was in college, painting and sewing onto photographs. Tracing the image over the top gave me more visuals with the lines that were created by the buildings, with more detail in my images. This task made me think more about the difference between snapshots … Continue reading

Pg: 169: Nadav Kander & Kelly Bryan

Task three, option two: Nadav Kander ‘Making not taking’ Step One: Follow the steps of Kander’s assignment. Step Two: Critical Rationale. Nadav Kander implies that a landscape photograph must be made rather than taken for it to have validity. I considered this concept and captured a variety of photographs surrounding my residence. Photographic decorum played a large role during my interaction with my surroundings; a consideration of composition, viewpoint and subject matter, with key focus on natural lighting to encourage the sense of reality, took place throughout this photographic experience. However, these images appeared somewhat lifeless and did not encapsulate … Continue reading
