This page presents two outcomes of the project "The Things I See" on Film: a Photography Prompt book (above) & a book that collates participants' responses to it. The first booklet combines a warm and textured colour palette to reassure the audience of the safe space that ought to surround the discussion of its contents. From the number of topics of provided within it, participants are invited to select one and explore it through creative photography. Using analogue cameras, with the film developed by Care, the second booklet contains a selection of grain-heavy photo responses, taken by participants, that reflect the relationship between identity and space.
The project's potential in helping young adults to grow aware of their frame of reference and think more deeply when interacting with others, can be implemented in induction classes from Secondary School all the way to University. Furthermore, it can be adapted to suit the purposes of Arts-Based & Qualitative research, particularly in inquiries of Photo-Documentation & Photo-Elicitation.
Photography was taken using a 35mm film camera with layout design constructed through Adobe InDesign, and booklets: printed by a third party company.
