The second artist that my tutor suggested that I look at, in my feedback for assignment four, was Hiroshi Sugimoto. Specifically his exhibition for the 2014 Paris Photo show, On the beach and PPTRD.
In my written feedback for assignment four, my tutor suggested that I look at Yto Barrada’s exhibition Faux Guide.
I came across this photographic artist, whilst researching cyanotypes after completing my recent practical course.
Allan Sekula, and more specifically his project Fish Story, is the second artist that my tutor recommended I look at in my formative feedback for assignment 3, the critical essay.
In my formative feedback for assignment 3, my tutor suggested that I look at the work of Martha Rosler, specifically her 1974-5 series, The Bowery in two inadequate descriptive systems.
Richard Mosse’s Infra and Enclave projects, are beautiful examples of post-photojournalism.

The artist-photographer that I chose was Corinne Vionnet and her series Photo Opportunities.
