New page – examples of my practice included in my thesis

I have added a page to this website that contains all the images in my thesis that are examples of my practice. https://insightimages.wordpress.com/thesis-illustrations-of-practice/

Transient figures

The blurring of passing people has proved an interesting challenge: to decide the right amount to anonymise people on private property, but still retain a degree of recognisability. I want to keep some character, to suggest who they are, what they look like, but with enough abstraction to allow sufficient scope for the viewer’s imagination. Images on the public street don’t have the same restrictions of privacy (in the U.K.), but I still prefer some blur to show movement, direction and temporality.IMG_0017_13det1.jpg

Introduction to The Flow of Life

My research is titled:

The flow of life: Photographing architecture as populated spaces.

This is the Blog of my practice led research that is located somewhere on the (indistinct) boundary between still and moving images.

There is a brief biog on the ‘about’ page if you are desperate to know about my background

I am a 2nd Year PhD student at MIRIAD (www.miriad.mmu.ac.uk/), Manchester Metropolitan University

AIM

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.
