Time Travel

My presentation for DSDN 144 (Photographics) Project 2.
It investigates the idea of photography being a means for time travel. I have taken photos of my closest family members and united them with my daughter. It has been at times a very emotional process but one from which I have learnt a lot about successful design and execution.

Time Travel Time Travel Presentation Transcript

  • time travel noun [mass noun] (in science fiction) travel through time into the past or the future
  • Fra Angelico Figure 1: The Annunciation of Cortona, Fra Angelico, 1433 - 1434, tempura on panel, 175 cm x 180 cm, Museo del Prado, Madrid Fra Angelico was an Early Italian Renaissance painter. His work, The Annunciation of Cortona,(fig 1) was what I had in mind when I started working on the photo-montage concept. In fact, his work is characterised by this ‘flat’ appearance not dissimilar to collages. The lack of depth of field is one of the contributing factors to the childlike naivety I wanted to achieve in my own work. Studying his work resulted in my creating an homage to Fra Angelico in the first image of my series.
  • Ava Seymour Figure 2: Enema Nurse from Health, Happiness, Housing, Ava Seymour, ?, vintage colour hand-print on Agfa paper, 69cm x 86cm, unknown My second precedent is by Ava Seymour, a contemporary New Zealand photographer specialising in photo-montage. The look of her work is hard-edged, jagged and reminiscent of Dadaism however she in fact rejects politics in her work and instead seeks to create moods rather than messages. (The Physics Room, 1998) Some of her work can be quite disturbing however it is the inherent humour of her work that I have been drawn to. I have also been influenced by the sense of nostalgia that can found in Seymour’s work which is especially appropriate for a time focussed project. The Physics Room. (1998). The Physics Room.
