Identity project

Posted in photography, photography studies by evitagoze on December 4, 2010

Lately I have been a bit lazy with updating my blog, but as we now have these sever weather conditions in England, hardly anything works and the world seems turning very slowly, this seems a perfect evening to do so.

Below you can see my final selection for Identity project. To remind you shortly – for this unit we had to make the photographic project in the widest possible sense and make a body of work. It had to be in b&w and handprinted. We were encouraged to consider social, personal, gender, ethnic, generational or family relationships, but overall we were free to do whatever we were interested in and our tutors would guide us during the process.

For this project I made portraits of several young women I met in Brighton. I wanted them to be tense and sensitive at the same time. I asked them to look into the camera to confront the viewer with their gaze. It was important for me to choose a certain location although instead of describing an environment there is just a suggestion of it. We would go to the parks or seaside, natural spaces within the city, I observed their appearance, slight movements, asked to take off their coats and scarfs to emphasise response to place and weather conditions.
