Comments & Targets
The pictures that you have taken in this task show a real sense of discovery. The abandoned house shots are
particularly interesting the subject matter is particularly intriguing. The dull derelict images of the house placed
alongside the rich vivid tones of the Cornish flowers create a real juxtaposition of colour and theme. Draw the
viewer in however I would have liked to of seen a few more close up images demonstrating a willingness to
develop and refine your ideas.
The strength of your visual images is let down by the total lack of contextual study that would have formed the
second part of the Holiday tasks where is this work?
Strand 1 - Force of nature – (T)
Some interesting images You have thought through the images well and demonstrated a good understanding of the brief.
However I would like you to use contact sheets and then edits rather than showing all your images in one go.
Strand 2 - Applied Force – (T)
.A good selections of images but again you need to have some detailed analysis of a relevant artist that you can link to your
Strand 3 - Force of transformation – (T)
This section is strong and is starting to show a real sense of development. I think the ideas shown particularly around the
portrait have the potential to be explored in a lot more depth. I would really like to see you moving away from the computer
and get involved using a lot more manual forms of transformation. Also where you have done some substantial digital work
please make sure to show your print screens of how you created the image. Please keeps up the investigation and you must
continue to put detailed analysis of other photographers work.
Well done Martha some excellent work here I think that you should continue to be experimental in your process and try out
more ways of capturing and distorting the portrait. Remember to keep up the contextual links throughout and fill in the
sections that I have spoken about.
Continue to develop your ideas and look at the following ways of development
Continue to develop the idea of the figure in the water.
Experiment with milk in the water
Create images in the style of Alexa Sheila
More refinement is needed befor you get to your final prints. You could use the speaker in class and try and recreate the
work of Martin Klinass using paint and sound. Print out final pieces the larger they are printed the greater the impact that
they will have
