To produce an alternative to conventional architectural photography: one that will show presence and movement within the built environment, over a period of time. It is intended that the resultant images will be of value for research within the architectural design process.
I anticipate that my research will investigate questions relating to:
The depiction of temporality in still photography.
The nature of ‘stills’ photography, i.e. the perception of movement in still images.
The reasons why architectural photography has altered little in the last eighty years.
The evidential value of images constructed over time and the viewer’s perception of their validity.
The assumption that record photography (e.g. within the fields of architecture, museums and archaeology) is produced without interpretation or creativity, with minimal input from the photographer.
I am interested in networking with other researchers who address similar debates, and/or those whose artistic practice aims to inform the design process of the built environment.
