So, I have finished my Foundation in Art and am now currently doing a degree in Photographic Art. I am going to be making this site a bit more personal, putting up more of my own work and thoughts as well as any influences I may have! I will still be adding reviews of artists work every now and again and also explaining how they are relevant to my work/what of their work influences me or makes me want to learn that technique, or just what I like about their work in general.
Anyway, I am now onto my 3rd project which is about physiognomy. (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Physiognomy for a definition). I have gone off on a bit of a tangent with this work and am looking at types of photo identification and if they represent the person whose photograph it is. I am also looking at facebook profile pictures which can be carefully constructed by the owner to promote how they want to be seen (or not) by society. I want to explore the question “Do you think that Facebook tries to get you to create a brand for yourself/gets you to market yourself in a certain way for others to see?” and show this in a comapre and contrast of “official photo I.D” and Facebook I.D. What do you think about Facebook as a form of representation?
