Saturday 12th Dec. One of the recommended reading books on PAP course arrived this morning, had a quick glance , looks very informative & interesting.

Weds 16th Dec

Read chapter 5 Intimate Life, particularly relevant to exercise 1 as I will be using family members. See exercise 1 .  Nan Goldin is perhaps the best known artist in this genre and someone whose work I greatly admire and get influence from. Her work is perhaps the antithesis to Jane Bown’s, using colour, and recording the lives of her circle of friends and lovers. Her work , although intimate, directs “the viewer to think beyond the specifics of her subject’s lives and about general narratives of universal experience” Pg 139.
