Over the last few weeks I have been busy building up to live in a new house with my boyfriend and making it our own space... we have scouted out cheap furniture on Ebay and have also had it passed down through family, and I don't think we have done too badly! I decided to document how it came along as something for me to remember it by and so I thought I would share this with others as it is a place that I have grown to feel proud of...

Salisbury Plain

Today I visited Salisbury plain for the first time, where I assisted as a camera operator for Andrew cross. We were there to film Nik Turner of 'Hawkwind' playing the saxophone. This was a great opportunity to meet new people and once again learn to use some different equipment that I will hopefully be able to put to good use!

It is now the final run up to our final major hand in and I was starting to get into a sticky situation. That was until I got into the darkroom and started to print my prints up....panic over...I was able to look at them properly and was pleased with the results. A successful critique with my tutors and guest Patrick Myles and it has strengthened my confidence in the project and enabled me to push on in developing my final results. I am looking forward to the final results so keep an eye out for their soon to be appearance on here :)

Here is a sneaky peek into the kind of work I have been developing....

Different subject matters

For a day my chosen subject matter drastically changed, as I entered into a complete new territory... Colchester Zoo. Watching the animals and their habits became something that I was fascinated by, and being able to feed an elephant definitely topped my day off!

It was nice to be able to take photographs for fun, and not with a project in mind!

I felt it was high time I focused on the photographers that are constantly influencing me and the way in which I produce my work. This is the time to announce my absolute love of Nigel Shafran and just about every photograph he takes!
I am drawn to his photographs every time I start a new project, it's the calm domesticity of them all, the focus being on everyday occurrences that one can relate to no matter who they are. The objects that are seen to most as banal and everyday things, become something of beauty and importance.

Spring has hopefully finally arrived and I can start to enjoy the nice weather when I am not working or attempting to move forward with my FMP...which as of yet is slow off the mark. Here are some of my spring snapshots to get me into the swing of things.

Exhibition complete!

After a long week and a half the 'Landfalls' exhibition is finally up and running! Come and visit us! Southampton Bargate gallery, Wednesday- Sunday 12-5 until the 29th April :)

It has been a tiring but amazing experience and I am glad to have had the opportunity to help out.
