Phonar Task 0 – Pre Task

Tell the story of your journey to school

So this is our first Phonar task, and the first photography task I have been set in a long time, so I’m going to cut no corners, I have been waiting all summer to sink my teeth into a task.

Like all assignments I want to start by breaking down the sentence, so I don’t skip any essential aspects and start spiralling off into something completely different as I have done in the past.

Tell the story – One thing I am really bad at in my work is telling stories, I tend to focus on aesthetics and come up with the concept later which is a really bad way to work. Phonar is about narrative within photography so this is the key element i need to focus on, especially because it’s my weak point.

Journey to school – This is the part that confuses me the most, is it a mental journey or a physical journey? I know that the decision is down to my interpretation and my ideas, so maybe I will come back to this section once I have researched how to Tell a story through photographs.


Another day of trying to establish PHOTOSENSE as it’s own brand and we have all written at least one post on each of the senses we are exploring, sight, sound and touch. We have already gained one wordpress follower too, and our twitter is ever growing. We are going to treat the blog as a hub for all the information we gather, a collective research blog which will later be edited down and re-presented as a radio show/ a series of shows. Have a look at the new blog posts from today which explore a wide variety of topics.

Another feature we added was the category selection at the top, allowing readers to choose their area of interest.
