I began by outlining a plan of action for my project, mainly research based.

I then moved onto researching and discussing the potential mediums I could use within my project.

The Mamiya RB67 is seeming the most appealing to me currently. I am quite confident with it, and it would let me have very intimate control over the creation of my work.


I then moved onto looking into my previous work, and how it related and had influenced my idea for my Final Major Project. PHONAR was the first time I had discussed my rape in front of a audience, and is the primary influence for my Final Major Project Idea. I used both words and images for my PHONAR piece, and photographed objects relating to moments in my narrative. This is an idea I can potentially take forward with me through my FMP.

I also touched upon my PICBOD work, as this was the first time I had focused heavily on self portraits and looked at a subject that isn’t usually openly talked about.

The list of Artists I have currently researched are:
Project Unbreakable
Gillian Wearing
Sara Davidmann
Henry Hargreaves
Rosy Martin
John William Keedy
Jo Spence
Briony Campbell
Kirsty Mitchell
Sally Mann

Sally Mann and Sara Davidmann have been the most notably influential so far. They have given me the idea for physically scratching into my images to create a physical representation of something not viewable. Briony Campbell has also given me the idea for a combination of different types of images, such as self portraits and still lives.

I have started developing current ideas based on research, and will continue to develop them as I go along.
