Abigail Solomon-Godeau – Inside/Out – Rebecca Woodall
In the text she looks at the various issues and arguments that could be made about these themes in photographers work as a whole, but also focuses on the work of the photographers Nan Goldin, Dan Graham, Larry Clark, Ed Rucha, and Dian Arbus.
The initial read of this text was difficult for me to get my head around.
I found the writing style rather complex, including a lot of terminology that was unfamiliar to me. These words can be found in my Dictionary post, which I feel will be beneficial to me not only in connection with this text, but also throughout the rest of my course.

I went over this Solomon — Godeau piece and looked at my dictionary as I read which instantly helped me to make sense of the daunting language. I then analysed the writing and changed some of it into simpler terms of what I understood the text to say.
Below shows my analysis. Looking at this text extract has really helped me with my understanding of the set project brief. I believe the new terms and phrases I have learnt will kut me in creating a strong idea and developing it leading up to shooting my final images.
This could arguably be an objective idea as the subject is unaware the photographs are being taken. This is one of the many ideas Soomon am excited to explore further in this project.
I definitely feel more comfortable and confident that I can produce work that fits the brief, and my next step is to conduct some artist research.
I feel this will give me more inspiration and allow me to further analyse the binary in photography. You are commenting using your WordPress. You are commenting qbigail your Twitter account.
