Major Project

Having received the grades for my recent exams it’s time to focus on the MP.

Just last week I began to think about the next step on my project which looks at my life as a profoundly Deaf artist.  I woke up one morning and had an idea which I thought was very relevant for the next step in telling my story. It involves shadows and reflections to illustrate things are not as they seem in many ways.

It was most interesting as I received the grade for re-think my tutor encouraged me to look at another artist which was most encouraging, as I looked at this work that I’d never seen before it just made me excited as yes it’s totally what I was thinking for my story.  See the link below for the artists website it’s fantastic and inspirational as well.  Not everyone will understand but I do I see things that speak without words the images tell me a story of someone lost and longing for home.

Please take a look at Laura’s work.

Time to move on and continue as Paul encouraged me to continue with this project on The Middle Land....

The story continues

Re-think unit

For the 're-think' unit I'm continuing with the 'middle land' a story which takes the viewer into not only my life as a profoundly deaf artist but simply I ask you to wear my shoes and see life from my perspective.

To live, walk and breathe my every day as a person to see what it's like first hand as a person who doesn't always catch what people are saying a person who can't always follow or do certain tasks.

Just this afternoon something caught my eye as I was looking at the British Journal of Photographers it was more a phrase which was mentioned in the article that moved me so much that I have to write about it as I feel it relates to what I'm doing for my 're-think'.

"Think about what you want to say, think about what you care about and then photograph that".
                                                                                                                             Abbie Trayler-Smith

Well to be honest I have rather a lot to say about my chosen documentary for re-think because I do care about it as it's my life the only life I've lived so far and yes I want to photograph it and to share my story with others so that you can try to understand people like myself.  As I feel when someone hears that I have a hearing impairment then first two things they do is exaggerate their lip movements and shout.
