At the start of September I embarked on my first 52 week photographic project. This was instigated by photographer Joel Robinson on Facebook. The idea behind the project was that he would issue a different theme every week, that all the participants could interpret, and create an image/artwork as they saw fit. I don’t usually do this sort of thing, but felt it would be a good way to challenge my creativity, some weeks have been harder than others, some have required collaborating with fellow photographers to create an image. I have had to challenge myself either to shoot something unique for the challenges, or to learn new editing skills to transform existing images to match the breif.
The images below are from the first 10 weeks, along with any relevant information, or conceptual description.
We have just been through 10 years of family photo’s to produce a large wall collage of our kids from birth to now, it’s amazing how they change over time, and the photo’s, many not seen for years, bring back so many memories.
Collaboration between my self and Sybille Sterk a fellow Arcangel Photographer. We supplied each other with several shots of our left or right arm to be used with our own to create an image.
This took my brain all over the place from HR Gieger (which didnt work) through to Terminator, a political battle between Trump and Kim Jong and then around to Blade Runner, which I think is where it ended. It was always going to be based on Michaelangelo’s Sistine Chapel.
Arms: mine and Sybille’s
Background: Fly Paper Textures plus a scene from Bladerunner
Spark: my own shot from a lightpainting experiment.
This is an acrylic window on a childs fort in a local playpark.
It has cracked and lost clarity and transparency over the years. In a way this could be a metaphor for life, when young, things were clear and perfect, but over the years things can become cracked and lose clarity.
