Monday started off with Heather giving us a brief, the project was to create a five page spread using typology and text. We then had a lecture about photography and the use of typology, showing photographers that use format well.
We then went to the library to look at magazines for inspiration on the layout for our spread, and to discuss our ideas for the project. I had decided on doing a series of photos documenting the six to eight churches designed by Nicholas Hawksmoor.
After lunch I did some research on the exact location of each of the churches, printed it out and then set off for ChristChurch in Spitalfields, taking photos of any interesting details, and mainly trying to capture the height and power of the church, taking shots standing underneath the front and looking up at the spire. This I would carry through to all the churches. Next I made my way up to Old Street to find St Lukes. Then onto Wapping for St George in the East, and finally St Annes in Limehouse. By this point the evening was setting in and the light was fading so I called it a day and planned to resume on Wednesday.
