EyV comparative analysis

Back -

In a post on the OCA student EyV chat page on 14Jan19, I offered the view that,

I have only completed two assignments so far, but my early conclusion is that you should abide by the Assignment Brief for the number of prints and the word count.
Other than that, as long as you submit photographs you are proud of and can explain your choice of subject and presentation cogently, you can do pretty much what you please. post

I thought I might put this to the test. I have built up a sizeable list of other students' web sites and intend to run a rudimentary analysis of their choices of subjects and approaches. I cannot see anything in the Regulations that would discourage this.

This snapshot of sites' content was started on 16Jan19. Once complete (if that happens) it is unlikely to be updated with work in progress. Note that the descriptions are usually mine not the artists' and I apologise in advance if any are considered inappropriate, inadequate or inaccurate (I added this sentence after describing Anthony's set for Asg. 3 as "dilapidation").

Once again, I am running the risk of being disrespectful. On 517401's depiction of his/her mother, I thought anything more descriptive than "old age" would be presumptuous on my part. In my defence, in the interests of full disclosure, my mother is currently (16Jan19) 98 and recently moved into a care home.
517401 refers to "my wife" while discussing Asg. 3.
