During the face to face event at Falmouth I arranged a number of portfolio reviews. For my review with Mandy Jandrell I shared the portfolio of images from the different projects I have developed during the MA http://fineart.photography/fine-art-portfolio-18th-february-2018/. Michelle was provided useful feedback plus an number of contemporary photographers to consider.
Mandy identified the following themes when review the portfolio:
The images have a strong industrial feel to the work especially those from the ‘Last person to leave’ and ‘Points of departure’.
The images were all post Victorian in style though a number of the pier structures pre-date the Victorian era especially Ha’penny Pier in Harwich.
The images capture the decay evident within the subjects.
Mandy suggested I look at the following artists to help with the development of my project
