You must get about 4 usable images from each turn in. I highly suggest you bring in much more then 4 for us to look at so we can narrow it down to the very best ESPECIALLY if you are doing lifestyle/documentary photography.
'Like an introduction to a book, your statement presents the fundamental underpinnings of your art; write it for people who like what they see and want to know more, not those who already know you and everything your art is about.'
- You will be writing a 1-2 paragraph artist statement about your plan for your future body of work. You will add to the statement and revise it when the series is complete. Please post in your shared period 2 folder. Consider: What do you plan to do and why is it interesting to you? Discuss your ideas and influences - artists, popular culture, personal experiences. Consider creativity - how will your project be original and yet also be understood by others? What do you imagine the end result will look like? How will you arrange the elements of your work to best convey your ideas?
- Find 8 images that inspire you (with your concentration in mind). Add them after your artist statement and write about how each image inspires you. Don't forget to add the photographer's name & date image was taken, also the title of the image if you can find it. You may find inspiration in theme, content, composition, color, technical aspects, genre, story, style etc
