Here's a few of my favourites from the series.
The idea of recreating scenes from memory fascinates me. I think its a combination of the personal memories that the photographs hold with the nostalgic feel they all have.
My childhood was all fields and playgrounds and spending hours on end just messing around in fields and only coming home for food and then i'm back out getting muddied up. I think I might recreate this now, but as I can't physically go home and back to the locations I spent time in, I plan to recreate the photographs here in Kingston.
So yeah, this work by Trish Morrissey will probably be my main influence during this project.
Szarkowski has photographed open space really well and I think that although he used B/W film rather than colour doesn't really matter because he's still managed to capture the space really effectively. However, I think that if he did use colour then the photographs would have a completely different feel to them. There's just something special about photographing the space in B/W that would be lost if he used colour, I think.
