Photomonitor

I previously wrote about Photomonitor and its founding editor, Christiane Monarchi -¬†https://josiepurcellphotographyma.wordpress.com/2018/04/20/christiane-monarchi/. Since then I contacted Christiane to ask her to take a look at my Harena Now project and provide feedback. I'm honoured to say that she has offered me the opportunity of an interview in the comings weeks. I truly hope this will … Continue reading Photomonitor

Lia Halloran – more inspiration

I really thought I had written about Lia Halloran's work before this, particularly her project, Your Body is a Space that Sees. I adore her use of the cyanotype process in these large-scale images (see Figs. 1 and 2) that have been made to showcase the impact women have had in astronomy since the distant … Continue reading Lia Halloran – more inspiration

Lens Culture Art Photography Awards 2018

I took the plunge today and entered some of my Harena Now series into the Lens Culture Art Photography Awards. I decided to opt for the series category, which also enables me to receive a review of my work by an industry professional. And, still being a student I also received a discount on entry … Continue reading Lens Culture Art Photography Awards 2018

Exhibition prints collected

Initial stats from first exhibition promotion

Having created an event and posted my invite to the opening night of my first exhibition on May 27 to my Facebook page, ShutterPod, I wanted to see how it had faired a week later with no paid-for boost. I also shared the event in a new post on Saturday, June 22. The stats in … Continue reading Initial stats from first exhibition promotion

Fal Anchor

I have just sent off my info to the Falmouth Anchor, the student newspaper for Falmouth and Exeter Universities. Having already contacted the editor, Annissa, about my work, she kindly said she thought it was great and was happy to include me in the next possible Introducing article. This is a revived element of the … Continue reading Fal Anchor

Noemie Goudal and new ideas

One of the best things about taking this MA is learning about other artists; thank you Wendy (McMurdo, my module tutor) for introducing me to Noemie Goudal. Goudal's work at first glance, for me, was perhaps not the type of imagery that would make me want to linger. Perhaps that's because the first images I … Continue reading Noemie Goudal and new ideas
