Assignment 4 · rework

The changes made to the assignment and learning process are numerous. Based upon feedback from David there was a need to rewrite sections fo the essay as well as tighten up some of the arguments. I in fact changed more text and rewrote more sentences than I had initially planned but on the whole feel that the presentation is clearer and more coherent.

I chose a large topic. The nature of truth in photography is not an easy subject to address and in addition much has already been written about the theme in academia. I drew out various arguments that I feel were important to the debate and attempted to contrast these with other views of documentary photography.

The learning process here has been steep and rewarding. Academically I feel that I have gained more of a grasp on what I arguing for and how to hold those arguments more solidly. I also see the relevance to my photographic practice as this essay, or rather the producing of it has given rise to trains of thought that have manifested I believe in practice as adaptions to how I view subjects that I photography.  An example of this is my assignment 3 project rework and assignment 5 of documentary fact & fiction. My intentions on both occasions have been to portray visual narratives based on real issues but from a more creative standpoint, offering another point of view for reflection.

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.
