The work needs to completed by this coming Monday (October 3rd) ready for the peer review lesson and assessment. Please ensure the work is finished and presented in your A3 folder in that lesson. It should comprise of 2 sides of A3. One side primarily images (Up to 8) featuring other associated images from the same series/period, images of the equipment used, the photographs in situ e.g. in a gallery and images of work that may have influenced the work. On the opposite page you should use one single A5 'Main image' that you write about and analyse in more depth using the prompts.
This week you need to start an additional page which is the start of your bibliography that you'll need to compile and add to on a weekly basis. This will need to be updated and printed off every two weeks or so. It is recommended that you copy the web-links as you do you research directly into a word file. It's also recommended that you prefix the web-link with a one word description of the type of research you've used as demonstrated and explained in class today.

As your work includes the necessity to identify different types of context in which photography exists looking at the differences in a range of approaches to photography, this week I want you to look at and analyse commissioned photography. You need to compare and contrast it with Art Photography and contemporary approaches to Landscape photography (Gursky) and discuss the influences of the David Noton work above.
The main focus of this work is the David Noton work.
The main things you need to write about (Use headings) to differentiate...
- Who or what is the work inspired by/similar to?
- What techniques and equipment are used?
- Also look for and discuss whether this photographer has been reviewed by National Newspapers, galleries, critics or academics, how many examples can you find?
- Also discuss whether and why his approach/equipment is appropriate?
- Discuss the work in comparison of that of Andreas Gursky (Use Gursky images).
For additional prompts to generate written content see the sidebar here on the blog or refer to the list on the wall in the classroom at college.
The work must be completed in full and presented on Monday 3rd October in Dave Thompson's session.
