#Task3: Connecting Communities - How a photographer connects and/or engages with community.

'Katy Grannan
Brian, b. 1976, 2004
pigment print , 31-1/4 x 38-1/2 inches (framed)'

Grannan leaves advertisements in local newspapers to find her subjects which have then spiraled off into many of her projects. Grannan's aim is to "empower the sitters", they are given almost complete control of the image from how much they wear, to their pose and where the photograph is to be taken - "a chance to act out their fantasies.".

#Task2: Visualising Histories - Responding to Archives

For this task of creating a new narrative for our family photographs, I decided to recreate a day in the garden and my Nan's house. Me and my brother spent a vast amount of time there as children with neighbours, friends and other family members were always joining in all the fun. As there are many photographs of us playing in the garden, I decided to merge different photographs from different days together to make one happy playful day!

(Second post but on behalf of Emily Jones as she is still waiting to be accepted into the online group)
Journey to uni - I chose to focus on photographing the geographical location of the streets I pass every time I walk to uni. I'm so used to the walk to uni with my housemates that I don't really pay attention to where I'm walking so I decided to pay more attention to my surroundings and observe the streets of where I​ live.

#Task1 - The Lure of the Local - My journey to college:
Mornings are a blur to me. I wake up with minimal time to spare, no matter what the day and no matter where I am going. My journey to university usually involves me scurrying pass lots of people who are potentially making similar journeys to uni, work or school. I am aware of that there are people around me on my journey but I realised that all these people are strangers which potentially pass me everyday but I do not notice them or recognise them. With this thought in mind, I decided to express this through my photographs by photographing these passers-by but intentionally not having them in focus/central part of the image.

Body positive article featuring men instead of women.
Even though we are so used to seeing "perfect" women in the media we are now subjected to a lot more body positive images of women too. Are we forgetting to be body positive for men too? In this article men of different race's, abilities and size's are photographed and also describe growing up as a male seeing what a "perfect" man is within the media.

#Picbod Weekly Task 4: Whilst walking my German Shepard back at home we bumped into this German Shepard puppy and her owner, Vicky. We chatted about each of our dogs, where in the village are good spots for walking and me being at university. Luckily I had my camera on me and I ask politely if I could take a photograph. I decided to not include Vicky's face as her focus is her dogs - she has a few more at home. I wanted to capture what she enjoys and what she loves within the photograph and I feel I have captured her love for dog walking here. I have since become friends with Vicky on facebook and have shared with her the photographs I have taken as I took some nice shots of her puppy Flo after this photograph.

#Picbod Weekly Task 3: For this task I battled with many idea's again as I struggled with how I would represent myself through a photograph. Eventually I re-visited some old work of mine in which I believe fulfills the task.
I am told regularly that I come across as a confident, fiery, strong person. Although I am rather pleased this is the way I come across there is another side to me where I can be shy and as we all do I have my own insecurities. I have always been fascinated about drama and performing arts and have used this as a way to hide my insecurities and fears. Always making sure to put on the smile and the brave face no matter what!

#Picbod Weekly Task 2: For this task of creating a photograph that explore's the space in a personal relationship I decided to post a photograph of my boyfriend. This is my strongest relationship currently in my life. I live with him and I spend the majority of my day with him. Despite this I still have this Polaroid of him under the light switch adjacent to my bed. I initially considered capturing a photograph of us together but I have never posted a photograph of us together before and I like to keep our personal time and memories between us therefore I felt this fitted the task more appropriately and more personally for me. 
Rather than just scan the photograph in I decided to photograph the polaroid so others could view it as I would. Each day regardless of if my boyfriend is there or not (some mornings he has left to work before I have awoken) one of the first things I see is him smiling at me and giving me something to make me happy about to start my day. He is a really strong foundation in my life and has really made a difference. Even though at first it does not seem like an intimate photograph for me it is, its a small glance into our lives which not a lot of people get to see.
