Advanced Studio Practice 2B: Evaluation of Final Images

My final images can be found in the white envelope labelled “Advanced Studio Practice 2B – Final Images, by Olivia Wilford”.

I have chosen these images based on my proposal and exploration of identity within the portrait photograph. I have photographed people on locations that are either symbolic to their personality, have meaning in their life e.g memories or places they thrive by ‘doing’ or ‘expressing’. By no means are my studies on “identity” finished – because I think it will be a lifetime journey, and not a ‘simple’ answer that can be defined. I have chosen 2/3 images for each person, because along the way throughout this project I have come to the conclusion that a persons whole identity cannot be contained within one photograph. People are so intricate and complex. The identity is formed by so many things – upbringing, life experiences, expectations of them from others, society, culture, faith, emotions, thoughts and much more. I have also observed that men and women see/express themselves in slightly different ways. Men, by outward things (e.g Tom – clothing, Dwain & Phil – physical activity) and women inward things e.g qualities/emotions they possess expressed through e.g Adele – music, Aida – creativity etc. But one thing I have learnt through this is that identity is intrinsic to the person. It is something within that is expressed through outward things.

Here are my final images
