Fast Photography is a response to a university assessment project part of a Photography-based practical unit.
The aim of the project according to the assessment brief was to create a ‘Secret Stories: Voyeurism, Surveillance and
Making the Private Public’ narrative. I was allowed to take photographs and/or use archive images, newspaper images or images from an archive or family album. I could also use text and audio, as long as the media chosen served appropriate to the intentions of the final piece.
"Taking pictures all the time turns you into an observer. It automatically takes you out of the moment." is a quote by the character Marion in Julie Delpy's film '2 Days In Paris', which was the inspiration behind Fast Photography, intended as a visual reflection on the pervasive role of photography in everyday life.
The piece received a mark A by Corinne Silva, the practitioner and academic leader of the unit.
