I wasn’t really sure about this assignment since I took a risk and tried to create a non-linear narrative that also takes into account my own narrative as well as the viewers, so I put it out there on the forum and I received some helpful feedback.
At first I posted the images in black and white and people liked them using words like ‘strong’ ‘effective’ etc., but when I re-posted them in colour, they received much more feedback and enthusiasm, so I decided to stick with the colour images.
It was also interesting to see what people thought of my concept as well as their reactions. I wasn’t planning on putting this image in:
Because there isn’t a sense of anything really. However, a couple of people in the forum said that when looking at his image in correlation with the context I provided, they liked that this was his response and because it was his choice to pose this way, it was a valid image. So I kept it in the series. It does actually reflect the way he is dealing with the university exam entrance process, but as a person who knows him, I can see it, so I was concerned it wasn’t strong enough, but I will take the advice of my classmates and add it. We will see how it goes over.
