Where to from now? How do you feel about our workings?

... we have already been responding more or less to each others photos as they were posted. It would be great to keep the phot0 blog running. Who knows, perhaps we could have a photo show, a photo book etc? I am learning lots about looking and imaging the world with a camera.
I saw two shows about photography on the trip, one in San Diego at MOPA, Museum of Photographic Arts, the other at the Getty in LA. At MOPA the exhibition running currently is on photomontage called 'New Realities': Jerry Uelsmann and Maggie Taylor. Surreal, fantastic, allusions to dreams and stories. The one at the Getty is illustrating the history of photography 'In Focus: Still life', how it has been and still is greatly influencing and influenced by painting (now large scale, Ori Gerscht, Marion Drew etc.) This is also evident in Jeff Wall's work.

Today is the end of November, the time I originally suggested for downloading our images. We have of course done this already in the blog, but maybe there are more you want to contribute as Juli said (in blog, DropBox?) We then each pick some to respond to in any medium (film, photography, painting, sculpture, whatever). Then posting images of that (with maybe a short text) with the idea of making further work in response to others. This could connect with a more word based take on the project that Michael suggested recently.

Do you want to do this? Or some variation?

so far...

Watching the blog posts mount up over the last few weeks has been extremely good. Seeing the unique and individual ways we each respond to our environments, what we find important, what we each focus on and how we manipulate the ways in which we use the medium to capture the images.

I feel that it will be hard to begin to take these images and re-render them in other ways, in other mediums, but it is essential that we all begin to let this happen. it need not be solely digital, nor contiguous with each other.

The photblog is beginning the process and the project that is running at present is working ok.

Maybe the next project is a literature based one?

Maybe we each describe a scene/setting/idea/story/reference to an art work/reference to an emotion/reference to an experience, and give the project over to another to fulfill in any wy they see fit, in any medium.

I say that a month would be optimum for this, and the photoblog continue during this time, as i feel that I am learning more and more about each member by what and how they image their world.
