The theme of this project is territories. To me the word comes across as quite menacing and alarming so for this project I wanted to steer clear of that definition and look at social groups and neighbourhoods – a more positive adaptation. I found an old Nunnery in the Woking area which had been converted into houses and apartments while still keeping its Victorian style architecture. My photographs portray the reconstruction of the Nunnery into a modern living space by combining the architecture with contemporary interiors of the houses.
As part of my photography course, I have to track my development on a blog. The posts from September 2011 until January 2012 are part of a module called Project Management, for which I was required to work in a group of eight students to create an exhibition. The blog followed every step we took in order to create a successful gallery. The blog posts starting from September 2012 follow my final year on the course. I'll be documenting my research and analysis of my final year projects, as well as include notes of my Professional Practice unit - which prepares us for a range of post graduate options. Finally it also looks at a project called New Creatives, where I'll be working alongside an artists to help college students get more involved with art.
