Above, David Campbell discusses the importance of context in relation to Photography.
After listening to this a number of times now, it really is clear that the more research you conduct your work will be much stronger and well informed as well as the below being considered:
Who? – Who the work is aimed at
What? – What the work is trying to achieve
Where? Is the intention evident in my work
When? When/ In which era or time frame is my work set, are issues surrounding this considered and related back to my work.
How? How I believe I am being successful/ How am I controlling intent. How am I gaining interaction – by how its disseminated/printed/edited.
Why? Why does my work have meaning/ What isn’t coming across to others.. Why is this.
