Site Specific Project- Final Selection of Images

After collecting a wide range of photographs as I travelled along the River Sherbourne, I began editing down my photographs into a smaller selection. I wanted a range of photographs for each location, taking influence from John Gossage and Paul Gaffney’s work, not only do I want to focus on the river as a subject, but I also want to to look at the surrounding area. I want to give my viewers a true experience of the river and my journey down the river, hopefully resulting in my viewers having their own journey down the river. As well as showing my journey, I also want to show the idea of human presence and the change from the natural environment at the source following the river through to the city centre showing the increase of human’s effect on the landscape.

For each location I spent time editing down my images into a reasonable number ranging from 1-10, I could then begin to think what would work in a photobook; after deciding my idea for my photobook, I revisited my edited selection of images to make the final decision as to which images to include.

Due to the restriction of my project and wanting to show the locations true to how I experienced them and true to the river’s journey, I have to keep my images in order of the river, for this reason some pairings do not work as well together as others do.

Here are my final selection of photographs, some locations have more images than others, however I feel that this doesn’t matter as some of the places I photographed more as I walked along the river  and captured more of my journey. Furthermore by having a random number of photographs I feel that it echoes the changing landscape and the randomness that can be seen in the natural environment.
