In the recorded video interview in the last room at the Tate show,  Daido Moriyama said he  prefers his work to be displayed in a book, as opposed to hung on the wall. When visiting The Photographer’s Gallery, earlier this year, there was a room devoted to Japanese photobooks. Here below  is one of the many books that you could purchase at the Tate. It is interesting how he compiles the books, with no particular order and no particular beginning. You could open the book in the middle and flick back and forth and this would be ok.20121229-233721.jpg

EMBRACE PHOTOGRAPHY at Ruskin Park

I went to Ruskin Park today in Brixton on a photo shoot with Embrace workshops. Here is a link to their website.

So I borrowed my boyfriend’s DSLR camera for the third time and spent a good few hours taking shots of the models who had come along. Here are some of the results.

The digital shots were on a 20mm lens so it was hard to get close- ups. I also shot a roll of black and white on a 50-100mm lens which I still need to process. I am really enjoying all the workshops and courses London has to offer this summer. The session today,  involved a brief introduction, followed by a shoot on location with two tutors and a handful of photographers from different backgrounds. The tutors were on hand to guide us with technical issues. Then we each finished up by selecting 6 interesting photographs and discussing them collectively back at the studio.
