Brief

Look back at the themes we’ve examined relating to place and our presence within it. What areas inspired you most?
The culmination of this course is a self-directed assignment where you have free rein to choose a subject that relates to any of the material discussed in the course. You may have gathered skills and insights through the projects that you want to revisit or you may have been inspired by other ideas.
The only stipulation is that the final outcome must represent a notion of identity and place that you are personally inspired by. Make sure that your work is visually consistent, relevant to the subject matter you choose and holds together well as a set, both visually and conceptually.

Think carefully about your editing decisions.
● Which images need to be there?
● Which ones repeat other images?
● Are you holding on to a favourite that is no longer required?
● Do you need to re-shoot anything?
Aim for a coherent set of no more than 15 pictures, accompanied by a reflective commentary of no more than 500 words.

Reflection
Before you send your work to your tutor, check it against the assessment criteria listed in the introduction to this course guide and make sure that it meets all the criteria. Make your evaluation available to your tutor.

Reworking your assignment
Following feedback from your tutor, you may wish to rework some of your assignment, especially if you plan to submit your work for formal assessment. If you do this, make sure you reflect on what you’ve done, and why, in your learning log. I&P, pp.137

[10Mar21] Place is the key starting element here — various individual identities can be explored anywhere that is relevant to those particular identities, but if a piece is to speak to both 'sides' of the identity / place duality and the components of a series are to be coherent then the uniting feature should be place.

Living in Eltham, South-East London there are two notable elements of the place:
Firstly a less-than-famous palace, used by Henry VIII (check, note some features) and taken up by members of the Courtauld dynasty in the early C20th who built a large art deco extension onto the remaining Tudor barn. The multiple-building itself is a remarkable exercise in contrasts;
but
a far more resonant contrast arose on the evening of 22nd April 1993 when Eltham became more-than-famous when Stephen Lawrence was killed while waiting for a bus on a non-descript surburban road about a mile from the palace. The fallout from Stephen's death and the subsequent Macpherson enquiry are still affecting British daily life and, in my view at least, are far more relevant than the killing of he killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis in May 2020.

The juxtaposition of those two Eltham locations has fascinated me for the nearly thirty years since the death happened (I moved back to Eltham in 1992). This Assignment will probably be due in September, by which time Covid restrictions will probably be relaxed, but I am minded (in early March) to do something around Lawrence.

The idea that came to me this morning (10th March) was 'what difference does knowledge of the special relevance of a location make to a photograph'.

I have always been reluctant to photograph in the area, fearful of in some way taking advantage of its notoriety. Nevertheless, if I photograph a black person waiting at that bus stop, than what difference does it make when the viewer is made aware of it's relevance. (I am concerned about the terminology I use on this page and have consulted Ugochukwu, 2020.)

My main concern with the notion is that anything I get there will be a mundane, non-descript snap and knowledge of the location will fail to energise, enliven or eninterest it. Best run a parallel idea as backup
