2nd year Documentary Photography Module
For my 2nd year Documentary Photography module, we were given free-rein in what we handed in and in what medium the final project was presented. For my project, I wanted to explore the idea of doors and the people who live behind them. My final submission was in a photographic book printed by Apple and a 10ft long print from the university print shop.
The final book displayed the image in a double page spread. In the book, the doors were displayed on the left hand page with the people living in the house on the right.
Here are some more example of the images:
Part of my initial focus with the project was to use members of my friends and family. With moving to university, there had been potential of losing contact with people, therefore this was a good project to also document the people who I had at home in Oxfordshire and housemates in Cardiff. I was still careful to have a range of ages, races and amounts of people to try to create a good range to the photos. If I was to do something similar again, I would perhaps photograph a street of people and look into their relationships seeing who might know who. The press has recently reported about communities losing touch and people not knowing who their neighbors are so this could be an interesting insight.
