I have realised my practice is being pushed and pulled between the conceptual and the commercial. Sometimes working on projects investigating memory through artistic endeavour, and other times, I am developing my personal style towards editorial commissions. This constant state of flux in reaching separate outcomes through my work has a negative effect on both practices and has stifled the development of my own photographic style. However, using aesthetic influence from Spinks, as well as being informed about the editing and ordering of images by Soth, I have compiled a series of images that are both aesthetically pleasing and critically engaging. Badger defines the aspects of Southam’s knowledge as that of “…connection, memory and history” (Badger, 2005)which are now interlaced into the development of my own photographic voice. Letinsky (CRJ, 12.03.2018)has led me to realise I have too greater focus on photographers for aesthetic influence and I should take more from text-based sources.
Dr Emily Orley talks about how, “JamesJoyce scribbled the words 'places remember events' in the margin of his notes for Ulysses.”(Orley, 2012:1)I hope to explore in the future the intriguing notion that the places I have photographed could have multiple memories.
