As Spring is around the corner, the course is nearly over and things have been hectic as I need to finish by this April.

Part four: Photography – Project 3 – Photography – A sense of place – Exercise 3

In this exercise we’re viewing images from different vantage points and we analyze what information we can gather from them.

Part four: Photography – Project 2 – Photography – It’s about time – Exercise 4

Because it’s usually an artwork integrated in the environment, the artwork itself changes as the time passes. The artwork continues to evolve into… Read More Part four: Photography – Project 2 – Photography – It’s about time – Exercise 4
