  1. 1. YR10 - PHOTOGRAPHY – TRANSFORMATION - PORTRAIT PROJECT DESTROY PORTRAIT - STARTING POINT Choose a photograph of yourself that has particular personal meaning. In your sketchbook, write about the photograph describing when it was taken and where. Describe the emotions you felt when the picture was taken and how you feel about it now. Using Rankin’s Destroy as inspiration transform the image. Add colour, text, collage with the aim of changing the photograph and creating some thing new and exciting. Initial Ideas Using your self-portrait as a starting point, develop a personal project, a mood board and a body of work that portrays your personality. Achieve this through the use of varying materials i.e. photography, collage, drawing, printing, software etc. Project development With reference to the work of Rankin, Ben Watts, and the other portrait photographers researched in your contextual studies, produce a set of portraits that reflect your background, surroundings, lifestyle, culture and environment. Using Rankins Destroy as inspiration take a photograph of your self, think about when it was taken where and how you were feeling at the time. Make changes to it that you feel change the picture and move it away from its original context. Make sure that the photo is noticabley different 1. Create a mood board describing and representing your persona, which will then be presented to the group. Your destroy portrait should be in the middle of the image and act as the starting point to the board. You must show evidence of development through sketchbook ideas. 2. Choose a theme that relates to your initial mood boards. Give yourself a title and write a paragraph explaining your theme. 3. You will start to take photographs based around your chosen theme. All prints, research material and evidence of experimentation are to be kept in your sketchbook. Your final presentation of photographs will be presented to the group. You must explain in your sketch how you have come to the final realisation and how you would improve the project. 4. You must write a concluding paragraph in your sketchbook explaining how you have come to the final realisation and how you would improve the project and develop it further if given more time CONTEXTUAL STUDIES Each week we will study a different photographer exploring their life work and learning about their visual practice. In turn you will use this knowledge to enhance and influence your own visual practice. Rankin - Destroy Benn Watts – Big up Peter Beard – Stress and density
