Now we Ergo the Ego

In late 2013 I asked a number a participants to visit my studio to participate in a shoot themed around them, only when asked what about them I wanted, I told participants “it is up to you”. The only overall explanation was along the lines of it had to be expressive, very outward and glamorously engaging (and occasionally my response was “I don’t know.. dress up or something, this is about what you want”).

Is it any wonder people thought I could not articulate myself?

The idea was to try and get a feel of Ego, and people’s outward portrayal of themselves given a chance to do anything as long as it was impressive.

What followed was an adventure though peoples ideas and expressions in a foil lined room lit to resemble the inside of some sort of science fiction film set.

None the less we captured some very interesting ideas from the absurd to the subtle.

Here are the highlights

This has been a fantastic experience and something I’d love to look into doing again in the future.

New Names Large Frames Exhibition

Excerpt from newnameslargeframes.com (with images added)

“We enjoyed great success on the opening night with both sides of THE MUSE fully packed,Drinks were enjoyed and the calibre of work was absolutely breathtaking, Combine this with the great food & atmosphere (not to mention the grand piano) and one would easily come to the conclusion that the night was a smashing success.

After 4 long years (give or take a few depending on each students background) of study everyone came together and produced something amazing.

After so much hard time and preperation the final year students a few days earlier had their portfolios evaluated by some of the industries best and brightest, including: Moshe Rosenzveig, Penelope Beveridge & Robert  Cameriere

From their evaluations combined with those of the great photographers who taught us,  they came up with results that would not only determine an academic outcome but also effectivly judge who would win a number of prizes for their achievments on the evening

 

Those prizes were awarded for:

Best portfolio Stephanie Georgia Jury

We as a group would love to thank everyone who showed up and all those who supported us, Including friends, teachers, families & sponsers alike.”
