351mc Photography and Narrative: Creative Workshop 5 : Transformative storytelling ‘Pete’s Story’

with 2 comments

Using only found personal images (ie images from family albums, online galleries [that you have permission to use] and local library archives, not published in magazines) research and construct a photo-artefact that weaves a narrative linking the archive population (a story of the people depicted within your chosen set of images).

Development : Build and include a soundscape relevant to your story. Include personal stories from the subjects depicted.

  1. Excellent stuff Dean. Most of the images fit the narrative well although the one with the girls backs is probably the weakest 🙂

  2. Thanks for the comment Rick. Yes, it’s early days but I always kept in mind that the images need to reflect the audio which I why I think this is a much better improvement on my previous pieces.

    I agree with the portrait image being the weakest though. Simple because the rest were landscape and seem to fit the screen better. Thanks again
