I’ve spent a considerable amount of time thinking about how I can improve my photography blog over these past few days. I came to the conclusion that this blog should not only showcase my new photographic work, but be a place where I can share the things that inspire me and, hopefully, inspire you.
An important factor in the development of any creative practice is a willingness to critically engage and appreciate the work of other artists. I mentioned in my blog post last month that there are some fantastic artists who are producing truly inspirational work and so I thought it was about time to share and discuss what really inspires me.
Earlier today I had my first lecture teaching photojournalism to third year BA (Hons) International Journalism students at UCLAN and I really wanted to stress the importance of purism when working within that genre of photography.
