Whilst being at home I’ve had two projects I’ve been working on, these projects are called touch and fragile and finally my third week of being home I have found stories that fit into both projects.
I’m super excited about photographing them and seeing the final out come. Part of my in design project rely’s on the photographs from touch and fragile so whilst taking these photographs Im looking for creating photographs that will work well on double page spreads!!
Whilst its all fun gallivanting off photographing new and interesting people, I do unfortunately have to write essays. The brief for this essay is a topic of your choice that adresses specifc issues within the context of press and editorial photography.
So for my essay I have decided to do it on conflict photography, looking deeply into the social pros and cons of taking Images. I want to concentrate on the morality of the photographer which leads me on to the chosen image I will analyse within this essay which is Nathan Weber‘s photograph taken of 15-year-old Fabienne Cherisma death in a nedrasat rooftops in Haiti’s capital Port au Prince.
So this week I plan to write this essay including Harvard referencing (which is beyond hard for me)
Wish me luck
So a change of events happened last week, I ended up getting the opportunity to meet up with Ray Tang from Rex’s Features and we went to the 25th anniversary of the NeXT cube computer.
I ended up being part of the press and honestly learnt so much that day and I’m very thankful Ray took time to answer all of my questions and provide me with so much useful information.
Here are some of the photographs I took whilst with Ray

The next day I went and work for Sarah Lee a photographer for the Guardian, where we photographed author Louisa Young. This was also an amazing learning opportunity, I honestly learnt so much in two day of work experience.
And Finally on Thursday was my 24 hour project. I photogrpahed Doreen the Pearly Queen of Bow Bells And Old Kent Road. I didn’t know what to expect really but when I entered her flat I was blown away by her front room or as she likes to call it “the museum room”. She was absolutely wonderful and so full of life.
Here is a few of the photographs I took for my 24 hour project
And now its time to travel back home to Yorkshire for the Easter break.
Part of our first year involves going to London to have see the second years gallery viewing (which will be us next year) and also to have the chance to meet some photographers that come into to talk to us.
This London Week finishes with a 24 hour project, the brief is titled “The city never sleeps”. A week before we were about to leave for London I still didn’t have a clue what to photograph for this 24 hour project, Originally I wanted to photograph soup kitchens but after talking to my tutor he told me to look at London in a different way, look for a story about the every day and then we started to talk about London’s cockney roots. After feeling inspired from my tutorial I decided to look at London’s root originally looking at Eel shop, which then lead me to looking at pubs in London ( many now have closed down) So I was thinking about doing my project on abandoned pubs in London until I came across an article on the internet about this one particular pub where many Pearly kings and Queens would meet. I rang up the pearly king and queen society and within half an hour I had my 24 hour project sorted.
Lets hope London is easy on us!!
The final shoot of the relationship brief.
