General Thoughts

I’m starting to struggle with this project now, even though it is on my home town.  I saw my lecturer last week for a 1-2-1 which wasn’t the best meeting about my work that I have had.  The project I was doing, my lecturer wasn’t keen on for a load of reasons and he didn’t seem keen on me continuing with it.  After a long talk and a look through images I had taken, an idea started to form that I could roll with.  My problem with this, and probably what has caused me to become dis-interested and start struggling is how far we are now into the project, we are about 7 weeks in and I’ve been steered away from the idea I had and ‘given’ a new idea.  I have now got 7 weeks (approx) of work to catch up with, photos, research etc… and this is causing me to struggle.  I don’t really know what to do or where to start, just that I have a great load of stuff to do and a lack of motivation for it.

How do you regain motivation?  And how do you start a project that you don’t feel engaged with?

Struggling…

As I posted last time, I am trying to make this blog a bit more personal.  As you know I am now embarking on a new project which is about Physiognomy.  Originally I wanted to do something about identity and facebook but I am not too keen on that idea.  I am struggling to put any meaning into my work or make anything seem coherent.  My ideas and thoughts do not seem to be coming through in what I want to photograph and my explanation of what I would like to produce.  I think I am making this project a bit too complicated.  I have decided to take a step back and look at other things that may be more relevant and easier to explain in photographic mediums.  I guess I am just finding the meaning behind the pictures the hardest to convey…
