1. Introduction to assignment

This work is what I have termed ‘protest documentary’ which comes to some extent from the ideas of Stott in his discussion about exposé documentary. By means of staging narratives mixed with found narratives I aim to give a perspective that has come from my contextual and textual research on the coronavirus that attempts to illustrate a larger problem than just the virus itself. With this project I endeavour to show something of a backstory to the pandemic based in human behaviour.

I follow the lead of a number of the specialists in their field that give evidence that covid-19 is not simply a virus but a deeper malady expressing that things are out of balance within our society and this current manifestation is simply another expression of that.

I aim to explore creatively something of my own responses to the situation thus presenting something of a personal document about an issue that has touched my own life and others very deeply.

I'm a student photographer studying through the OCA a UK based arts university. I'm in the foundation year of my studies and enjoying it immensely. I'm also a yoga teacher and co-founder of Bodhiyoga a buddhism based yoga teacher training program that runs in the UK and Spain each year. As a photographer I'm interested in all forms of fine art. I find the arts really important in my life. I love nature and aim to be in the outdoors as much as I can. Generally I think that all the different strands of my life are flowing to towards self development in the greatest sense of the term. The arts, buddhist practice yoga and meditation are all tools to that end. I feel committed to communication the these values in the world both through the visual arts as well as teaching.
