The brief for this task –
What makes you tick and where do you want to be in 5 years?
Students are asked to build their “fantasy portfolio” by clipping and copying photographs taken by photographers other than themselves.
The portfolio should contain a minimum of 12 and a maximum of 18 images that reflect:
a) the kind of work that first inspired them to become photographers
b) the kind of work they hope to be making in the years after they graduate
c) the images that have always been the most formative and influential to their own style as a photographer
The portfolio can be made up of single stand alone photographs and also series of images from picture stories.
Note for picture stories it is advisable not to include more than three or four from any one story.
Portfolios do not have to include series but they should all include individual images that represent a genre of photography and instances of well known or lesser known works by established photographers.
Please try and collect images that are at least 800 pixels in size at 72dpi for display on a computer screen
Any source is permissible: screen grabs, jpg files, phone camera copies of books or newspapers or magazines or exhibition photographs.
Each student will email a link to a zip file to Jon levy so he can review their selection and discuss with each photographer their choices and the thoughts and feelings behind these choices.
