Final Major Project: 1:1 Summary Notes – 7th February 2018
Notes from my recent 1:1 with Wendy McMurdo – recorded here for reference.
We discussed my project proposal – it should be a road map to completing the project from concept to the end point. The idea is to convince people that I know what I am doing and not to continually refer and compare to other people – it is about ME and MY WORK not theirs. My journey.
Relationship of people to the background they are photographed in
Landscape format? Be consistent across the project
Sketch images before shoots (as I already do) and include these in evidence
Shoot images in black and white?
Consider use of grids / sequences of images – 4?
References to consider:
Andy Wiener – National Galleries of Scotland
Cindy Sherman’s early work when she was a student, 1976
Susan Bright – Auto Portrait
Discussed Eileen Agar’s Angel of Anarchy
Ensure the venue is the right one
At exhibition complete an artist talk and record it
Use of slide projector in exhibition?
Bring contact sheets to future discussions
