Light became discovery, discovering became journey, and journey ultimately has become story. Where Next? is a photographic book which literally asks a question. Originally it is a project that branched off from a study of light; it aims to tell a message alongside the imagery. It is to remind us that things can escalate quickly, that they are easily missed if we blink for a moment too long, and that memory is such an important thing. Photography is a physical form of memory. Cherish it, and reflect on it. And never stop moving forward.
Apologies for the slow in photos, I’ve been busy.
I officially graduate university next week, last week was a degree show that was blessed with the most humid weather one could ask for, and so! I’m just in a short cool down period.
This book was my main product of my final year, and was on show last week. I’ll likely post a few photos of it, as I did have a few prints up and I’ll be throwing these photos at anyone who cares to look.
Blurb is expensive, sorry. I’m currently looking into cheaper production methods of books, though with Blurb, I might produce a pocketbook edition of this book with the cheapest paper they offer while I source another method. I feel like my book deserves to look a bit battered and worn, seeing how it’s about a journey and nothing comes out of a journey looking perfect.
On that final thought, I’m going to look into learning how to bind my own books while I try to get a job that pays. It’s all well and good being told Don’t work for free! but alas, it’s the most effective way to build experience and credibility in the field. I just pictured myself in the middle of an empty field… That might be a fitting analogy to how I’m feeling right now. People aren’t going to come if you just wait around.
Regular photos will be publishing again from next week. Thanks for following.
