CJ Clarke - Magic Party Place: Fragments of a New Town

Born and raised in Basildon (25miles outside London), Clarke aimed to challenge the misconceptions surrounding the community. He avoided the extreme violent stereotypes normally associated with Basildon, despite the fact these images would have granted him many newspaper publications.

Instead, he worked with the community to engage and empower them because they could feel in control of their own representation.

Here I wanted to show the differences and similarities between generations.

The first two images show similar people within my immediate family 50 years apart. I found the change in expressions and formality interesting which I think mirrors the style of photos in each era.

It seems to be a tradition in my family to have 2 daughters and so the next images show the similarities between sisters across 3 generations. My mum was a bit of an anomaly as she was born 9 years after her sister and 11 after her brother. This meant there weren't as many with her playing with her siblings and rather seemed to be looked after by them instead. However, the family bonds were still there which can be seen clearly in all of these images which ties them all together.

My journey to uni is three times longer this year and so to keep myself entertained I look for details and patterns on the way. I love the diverse architecture within Coventry which are shown through my images ranging from the modern 'Chi Bar' to more traditional buildings such as the 'Bears and Doll Houses' shop and Weatherspoons.

Many of the images may not mean the same to others as they do to me, such as thinking "phew, I'm half way" at the fountain, or checking the time in the square to make sure I will arrive on time. However, these images show iconic places within the city that are familiar to all that live here. Whereas at the same time, they could also have a more personal meaning specific to the individual.

Task 4

I found this task incredibly hard. Just the thought of approaching someone makes my stress levels rise uncontrollably. However, I thought that by having my phone on me at all time I could just do it whenever I saw someone interesting, instead of planning to go out with my camera and then being disappointed if I could not do it.

After approaching 3 people and receiving a 'no. I'm busy.' I resorted to finding a friend of a friend named Jasmine. That way I was sure not to get a negative response.

I asked her what part of her body was her favourite as this is a positive question and should help her relax.

After saying her hair was her favourite, we talked some more about photography and how she does not really like being in front of the camera. That is why I decided to position her in this way, not only to make her feel more comfortable but also to show off her favourite asset. I chose to edit the image in black and white because I feel it shows the detail in the texture of her hair better, drawing your attention to it.

Task 3 

For years now I've been in recovery for many things (I wont go into detail) but the cracks here represent the piecing together of my mental stability that has made huge progress yet is not quite complete. I regularly feel exposed due to a society that does not fully understand but also physical marks on my body that act as a reminder and cannot be ignored.

Task 2

Since Jake's parents split up when he was 14, he's had a fear of separation. I've tried to symbolise this here with entwining and merging fingers between him and his partner.

Task 1

Liam's favourite past time is collecting anything that catches his eye. He believes that small items, perhaps broken ones, are often seen an insignificant to others. Whereas, when all put together, he sees the group as far more impressive with each form and shape interacting with each other.
