Feedback form

I plan to encourage feedback at the exhibitions I am holding for my Harena Now project. This project for me has much more longevity than the end of my MA, and I hope it will continue to develop and grow. To assist with this, hearing people's comments about the work and the shows will add … Continue reading Feedback form

Warning notice

I decided my warning notice in my previous blog post was perhaps a little strongly worded: https://josiepurcellphotographyma.wordpress.com/2018/06/17/final-elements-of-first-show/ I have now updated this (and corrected a spelling error) as below: This is more about making sure young children are not left alone in the cafe space and potentially reach for the small silver magnets and put them … Continue reading Warning notice

New pieces – new paper

Ilford kindly donated four boxes of expired paper a few years ago. Two are fibre-based and two are resin coated (see Fig. 1). For the majority of Harena Now I have used the Warm Tone Semi-Matt paper as it seems to create the most vivid blues, yellows and purples when auto-toned in Photoshop. I recently … Continue reading New pieces – new paper

Final elements of first show

With the first show for Harena Now taking place from June 22, I have been putting together a few final touches - paperwork mostly. The space I have is one wall that measures 6m x 2.5m (18ft x 7.5ft). The work will hung unframed with small magnets. I will hang it as high up as … Continue reading Final elements of first show

Photomonitor

I previously wrote about Photomonitor and its founding editor, Christiane Monarchi - https://josiepurcellphotographyma.wordpress.com/2018/04/20/christiane-monarchi/. Since then I contacted Christiane to ask her to take a look at my Harena Now project and provide feedback. I'm honoured to say that she has offered me the opportunity of an interview in the comings weeks. I truly hope this will … Continue reading Photomonitor

Lens Culture Art Photography Awards 2018

I took the plunge today and entered some of my Harena Now series into the Lens Culture Art Photography Awards. I decided to opt for the series category, which also enables me to receive a review of my work by an industry professional. And, still being a student I also received a discount on entry … Continue reading Lens Culture Art Photography Awards 2018

Exhibition prints collected

I have to say that I am incredibly pleased with the four more A1 images I collected from Falmouth University's Photolab. An excellent job. The paper, Premium Fine Art-Hahnemuhle Photo Rag, provides wonderful depth of colour. I just want to touch them, but must resist as they have the potential to easily scratch and mark. … Continue reading Exhibition prints collected

Further opportunity post MA

Although not necessarily part of my final MA project, I am keen to keep trying to share my Harena Now work into the future. As well as applying for opportunities outside of Cornwall, I am also applying for exhibition opportunities within county too. I have now applied for a three month show at Cornwall's major … Continue reading Further opportunity post MA

Initial stats from first exhibition promotion

Having created an event and posted my invite to the opening night of my first exhibition on May 27 to my Facebook page, ShutterPod, I wanted to see how it had faired a week later with no paid-for boost. I also shared the event in a new post on Saturday, June 22. The stats in … Continue reading Initial stats from first exhibition promotion

Fal Anchor

I have just sent off my info to the Falmouth Anchor, the student newspaper for Falmouth and Exeter Universities. Having already contacted the editor, Annissa, about my work, she kindly said she thought it was great and was happy to include me in the next possible Introducing article. This is a revived element of the … Continue reading Fal Anchor
