Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
I am undertaking a part-time MA in Digital Media [September 2010 to 2012] at the School of Media, University of Lincoln. I have completed my first year creative project - phew! - and welcome feedback.
Click on Storytelling Snaps to see my original online interactive project where you pick through the photos and hear stories that span a lifetime of memories over one man’s eighty years. They are spontaneous stories triggered the moment I showed him family archives that were stored away. Now they have been given a digital life to a new audience whereby each snapshot shares its tale.
I was curious about how a shot captures a moment that can trigger a memory and release a story. In Sontag’s essay Plato’s Cave (1977) for me she accurately described photographs as “experience captured” and that, in essence, conceptually inspired my project.
