  5. 5. Photographs by John Hedgecoe Sir Stanley Spencer Factual method: This image is by John Hedgecoe and was taken in 1959 and was purchases in 1980. Technical method: I think this photo was created by John Hedgecoe in a room in one of there houses as it looks, without being edited, really dark and not very relaxed. Aesthetic Method: The look and style of this photograph from John Hedgecoe makes me think about the whole idea behind it. I like this photo as it gives out an understanding of what he feels like and what he is trying to show us. Context Method: In this photograph the context is in the body of Stanley Spencer, this is because the way
  6. 6. Henry Moore Factual Method: This image is taken from John Hedgecoe and was taken in the year 1966. Technical Method: In my opinion this photograph was taken in a studio without a patterned background. For the lighting it looks like it is coming from a window to the left. Aesthetic Method: The thing I like most about this photograph is the way his hands/arms are positioned, this is because it is soft of an outline of his head. So it stands out more. Context Method: I think the body of work is in the „model‟ I think this as it makes you think what the photo is meant to represent and also
  7. 7. Mary Quant Technical Method: In my opinion this photograph was taken in a studio that was set up in a certain way. For the lighting he used the lighting that was available, Factual method: This image is by John Hedgecoe and was taken between 24th March -18th June 2000. Aesthetic Method: The thing I like most about the image is the way John made it Black and white, however you can still see the places where it is light and the places where it is dark. The way he planned out the image is interesting even though you don't know what the purpose is behind it. Context Method: I think the context is that the pose she is doing in this image is the one that John thought would
  8. 8. Vita Sackville West Factual method: This image is by John Hedgecoe and was taken between 24th March -18th June 2000. Technical Method: In my opinion this image wasn‟t taken in a studio, this is because the background looks like it has worn down . Aesthetic Method: The thing I find most interesting about this image is the way she is positioned and the way we don‟t know why her facial expression is like that. This image makes you think what the photographer was meant to express. Context Method: I think the way she is standing and the way the broom/stick and basket are placed and the way she doesn‟t seem to be very happy, could be the context as it is like some of the other images he has captured.
  9. 9. John Betjeman Factual method: This image is by John Hedgecoe and was taken between 24th March -18th June 2000. Technical Method: I think this photograph was taken in „John Betjeman‟ bedroom or even was taken in a studio very well set up as a bedroom. For the lighting it looks like it is coming from a large window. Aesthetic Method: What I like about this photograph is the way John Betjeman looks so comfortable and relax also the way he isn't looking at the camera but isn‟t too far off. Another thing I like is the way the lamp isn‟t dead straight because most lamps are on a wonk. Context Method: The whole context is in the image because looking around you get a feeling of what the room is like and also the context is the way he looks and the way he is the props/ furniture is laid out as it isn‟t too cluttered.
  10. 10. John Mortimer, N.F. Simpson and Harold Pinter Factual method: This image is by John Hedgecoe and was taken between 24th March -18th June 2000. Technical Method: I think this was captured at a bar as if they are writers they may be talking about there work. However, I also think it may be down an alley way as it looks like walls behind them. The lighting is coming from either the lights inside the bar or coming from the sun if it is outside. Aesthetic Method: I like this image as it isn‟t too cramped also I think it looks natural. Your eyes don‟t just look at something straight away you look at them together not individually. Context Method: In my opinion the context is in the writers expression and body language.
  11. 11. How John Hedgecoe inspired me • • • John Hedgecoe has inspired me because his photos aren‟t too cluttered they aren‟t very busy also they all have a meaning that we may not know. He has also inspired me as he doesn‟t used the same model, he uses a variety e.g. male and female. As well as not using the same model he doesn‟t use the same arrangement, he uses different props, different sets, different backgrounds and different lighting. Lastly, he has inspired me because he was an award winning photographer and was able to take a profile of the queens head, this is inspiring as I think he tried really hard to become a great photographer and the hard work he must have done to have been able to get the chance to meet the queen and get to have the photo put on a stamp must be an amazing thing you could say you have done.
  12. 12. “However, I think in some ways photography has become too easy. Many people don't really know how to operate a camera and just let it make all the creative decisions. In the past, you had to work hard to get a really good image, but now it's so much easier and that makes it much more difficult to be unique. Technology has made it less of a challenge and I think that has taken some of the magic and mystery out of photography.”
