Note to assessors…

Please be aware that there is a lot of information on my blog.  I mention this here because I want to be certain that this will not be interpreted as a lack of discernment on my part.  My evolving personal practice involves a significant amount of research, experimentation, reflection and revision.  In writing these things down in my learning log, I can elucidate and solidify my own thinking, and return to ideas as and when I need them.  These records are not something that I expect the assessors to read in detail however.  Each of the six assignments is comprehensible on its own, without the need to review the background information.  Obviously, the assessors are very welcome to peruse this material if they wish to do so, but it should certainly not be viewed as essential reading.


Course evaluation

Photography 2: Landscape is my final level two (HE level 5) course unit.  Since the themes addressed by the Landscape course were the most appropriate fit for my background as an academic geologist, I decided that this was the course I should take before moving on to level three.

Landscape and Western art

This is another recommended course book that I have been dipping in and out of as I have progressed with the Landscape course.  The earlier chapters in this book provided some useful background and ideas but where this book really started to get interesting for me was in the last few chapters; Landscape and politics, Nature as picture or process?, and Landscape into land.

Final decision on output designs for assignment five

I spent an awful lot of time working out how I was going to present my images for assignment five.  In the end, I have come to the conclusion that my work requires two different, but complimentary, presentation methods; a large print and a small artist’s book.
