Final Project: Landscapes?

I am now entering the final phase of the MA in Photojournalism & Documentary Photography. The final project will run from now (April) until mid – end November. Thats roughly six and a half months. It seems like a lot of time, but this is no time to get complacent.

I have been thinking what subject to explore / investigate for the final project. Initially I thought I would like to do something along the lines of Alec Soth’s photography. Wikipedia describes his work as cinematic in feel with elements of folklore: Nice description.

There are so many things to think about: timeframe, cost, accessibility, equipment, to name a few.

Alternatively, I have been thinking of doing a set of landscapes on a particular stretch of land near where I live. I’m just wondering how I can tie in the two ideas together?

Answer: more research and much thinking.

  1. hi simon, i think you have a great “feel” (in the peter frasieran terms) for the landscape, and i’d love to see more – maybe more pathological, not sure, something like that, as i feel there’s something in your photos like that… .
