Reading List: A Sneak Peek

My birthday is fast approaching, and to make the most of it all I am asking for is books, over the last 6 months I’ve been working as an assistant for photographer Robbie Cooper but with no income – so my reading list on amazon is now miles long, my lack of funds is the main reason I haven’t written too many book related posts recently. These books are on the reading list for the MA at Kings College London I’m applying for next year and a few more that I’ve found – I can’t wait until mid may to sink my teeth into them all!

This post is just to give you guys a sneak peak of what’s to come in the book department over the next six months.

Become Someone Else

It seems what I previously wrote about, everyone finding their own ways to escape reality couldn’t be more true.

This campaign “Become Someone Else” by the Lithuanian Agency, Love for Mint Vinetu, is a great example of one way in which people escape reality. Although it might not relate directly to photography and escapism. It does make me think wether some people treat photographs like instant books. Without putting any effort in we are immersed into a place or a situation in which we escape, even if it’s for a few seconds.

WE <3 IT

i came across this site called We ❤ It. It’s basically an online site where you can create a portfolio of your favourite found image. It seems like a good idea to join in with. And I thought the images people collect could be of there outlets, there are a lot of camera, headphones, paintbrushes. It’s a very euphoric site with the mystical hazy themes. Here are some of the images which i regard as peoples escapes.

The only problem with it is most images are from tumbler and there are no links to the original artist, because tumblr has become this anonymous re-bloging system.

TEA..

MUSIC…

BOOKS…

PHOTOGRAPHY…

COSPLAY…

MANGA…

These are all really good examples of peoples loves and escapes. But not really my style. but a good research source, definitely be using WE ❤ IT more for research.
