Shots from the 3rd shoot in Odiham
This is my final major project which i am currently working on. It is a scoial documentary featuring the north Hampshire village of Odiham. It is about sense of place and discusses the idea of a particular scenery or location within a rural landscape/village which on the surface could be seen in any other similar place in the country or on the planet, however in exploring a place thoroughly enough, particular chracterisitcs and individualities begin to define the place and make each picture specific in this case, to Odiham. Odiham is 'twinned' with the French town of Sordeval, and the second part of this project, which i aim to work on as a post graduate, will be to go to explore this place over a number of days/weeks and look at what Odiham's twin village has to offer photographically, dealing with the same themes as those in Odiham half of the series. The project is influenced by work such as Alec Soth's: Sleeping By The Mississippi, Jem Southam's: Landscape Stories and Richard Billingham's: Black Country.
This project was done in the 2nd period of 2nd year. It is about childhood memory and a sence of place and space in the domestic place which are linked with images in the memory, in this case, my grandparent's house of which i spend many days of my childhood in.
This project began in the 2nd period of 2nd year, post christmas. It is about Depression and using a forest or 'wooded' scene as a metaphor to represent the illness and the symptoms it creates for different people.
