Anna Gaskell

It's funny how things in life go fulls circle, earlier today Phil said to look up the artists on the sheet and said how he thought I liked Anna Gaskell. Once I googled her I realised that I used her photographs in my FMP for National Diploma when I was doing fairy tales. I love that fairy tale like quality these imahes have and how silent they all feel like they wanted to tell you a secret but have been told not to, therefore leaving us as an audience wondering and wanting more. I enjoy how she never really shows the person's face within the photograph either, (it's something I use in my personal art work), it leave the story telling to the body language instead.

  1. Hi everyone – hope you’re relaxing after your five weeks and crit…

    In preparation for your next unit, I thought it might be useful to introduce you all to a couple of third year students, whose projects are very environment-based (in different ways and with different emphases) and who are in the later stages of their respective projects; I’d like you to follow their progress – so introduce yourselves and don’t be shy!
