 Hi everyone, on behalf of the IMG19 collective I am informing you of our exhibition next week in Coventry.
Thanks in advance, Joseph.

"On 30th May 2014 from 6pm, nineteen lens based artists will unveil the IMG19 exhibition at the Lanchester Gallery in Coventry. The collective was created by current third year BA students from the acclaimed Photography course at Coventry University. The exhibition aims to address photographic issues in the post-digital era.

This exhibition is a must see for anyone interested in social documentary, digital media, and cutting-edge photography.

The gallery will be open daily until Thursday 5th June."

Session 8 Alternative #BTF task – Reflection
This is the fourth and final of our alternative tasks which have be set by Professor and Author of Bending The Frame, Fred Ritchin. If you missed Fred’s talks then you’ll want to go back to the lectures from the start of the class – they’re well worth it. This iteration of Phonar has been re-written to draw on Fred’s Bending the Frame so if you do these tasks then please use both of the #phonar and #BTF hashtags.

 
Source an image of the Coventry blitz. Ask yourself “how would this have been presented in today’s social and multi media environment? In what ways would it difffer? Is it better or worse?”.
Blog a 250 word reflective account.

Session 6 Alternative #BTF task – Framing For The Future
This is the third and penultimate of our alternative tasks which have be set by Professor and Author of Bending The Frame, Fred Ritchin. If you missed Fred’s talks then you’ll want to goback to the lectures from the start of the class – they’re well worth it. This iteration of Phonar has been re-written to draw on Fred’s Bending the Frame so if you do these tasks then please use both of the #phonar and #BTF hashtags.
 
“Framing for the Future”
Make a series of images covering different events / locations / environments over a week for which you record all possible factual data alongside (names/dates/location/weather etc, keep the data clinical – facts only).
At the same time make a separate sets of notes on how you felt personally when making the images (your mood, physical state of being etc), use Chapter 1 of Bending the Frame for inspiration.
Additional: Share the images with other people, once with the facts and once with the your feelings and ask people to describe how this information changes their experience of the work. Reflect and blog your thoughts on their responses.
Combine the two into one final

Creative Task: Reframing the Present #BTF

Session 5 Alternative #BTF task – Re-framing The Present
This is the second of our alternative tasks which have be set by Professor and Author of Bending The Frame, Fred Ritchin. If you missed Fred’s talks then you’ll want to go backto the lectures from the start of the class – they’re well worth it. This iteration of Phonar has been re-written to draw on Fred’s Bending the Frame so if you do these tasks then please use both of the #phonar and #BTF hashtags.
Alt task: “Re-framing the Present”
Tell the story of a current news event. Use all of the available and appropriate perspectives at your disposal to make a version of the story which you feel is more accurate. It needn’t be a national news event it might be hyper local, perhaps you see a national narrative that doesn’t reflect your local/cultural reality etc
Development: Make alternative versions of differing publications/ broadcast channels, which reflect nationally and or culturally diverse perspectives.

#Phonar Session 8:
 Pt2 Interactive Media Director Matt Ford
You can listen to Matt Ford on this link
http://www.worldphoto.org/student-focus/phonar/lectures/
Really pleased to have pulled in this chat with Matt and very grateful to current #phonar student Alex for allowing us to sit in on his quasi-tutorial (even though the work is an early noodle rather than a rough-cut – he said I had to make that clear). There are links below to examples of Matt’s work which he mentions in the piece and don’t miss the awesome set of tips that just out in a big blob towards the end. This one’s a keeper.
Please tweet your notes and comments using the #phonar hashtag and Matt is @MattFordVI when quoting.
