Susan Sontag's 'On Photography' - first reflections

Doing an MA in photography is not just about completing a series of projects, it is about trying to communicate the power of photography to an audience, and showing what it can mean, even to those who do not have a full understanding of art and its uses. 538 more words

The attraction for photographers to show fantastical images, pictures which prompt the viewer to ask questions other than the obvious, is something one often sees. None more so than with the photographs of Martin Parr. 463 more words

Joel Sternfeld - dream world visualisations of America

It was recommended to me that I should look at the work of Joel Sternfeld to inform my project on fantasies, dreams, fairytales and gardens. I understand why, as the first impression of his work was of having an ‘otherworldly’ quality. 392 more words

Pictures from Essex, and Piccadilly/Hyde Park Corner in London

Through my survey and through other discussions I have had with people about what, for them, conjures up ideas of fairytales, what has struck me the most is that they will often first, before anything else, look straight to their gardens. 426 more words

Following my discovery that for many people I had discussed it with, or asked, fairytales for them meant their gardens, I decided to start up a Facebook page aimed at encouraging people to tell me about gardens they knew of which made them think of either beauty and the good elements of fairytales, or gardens which were strange, unusual and creepy; basically gardens which touched their emotions. 406 more words

The fairytale and the broken heart - England/The World Cup/The Sports Bar in Haymarket

Attending a central London bar (Jetlag, Cleveland Street) on the first day of the football World Cup to watch Brazil v Croatia

I was very pleased that I attended this bar to watch the first football match of the World Cup. Of course, I was happy because it was Brazil playing and I was supporting them, but what I really got from the occasion was the way that fairytale principles and concepts can infiltrate into many areas of our lives and affect our behaviours and thinking. 226 more words
