‘missing buildings’

  • use your imagination – doesn’t have to be true
  • what are you really interested in?
  • if you like a photographer – chase them – (photography assistants)
  • make time for your own photography  – that you enjoy
  • pictures don’t always have to make sense
  • start with feelings/ get to the ideas later
  • say things with pictures not words
  • don’t have to understand your projects / work / do it on feelings and just because you want to…
  • do something that years ago would have been drawn – do it years later your own way… e.g. – drawing a bomb / damaged buildings after an air raid – years later doing the same things except with a camera.
