I’ve been re-assessing my aims for this project and have now come up with an effective way to achieve them. My actual aim was to demonstrate the way we experience photographs through memory which I chose to do with the aid of fairy tales. I have now decided to represent specific fairy tales through objects which appear in them. For example, for ‘Red Riding Hood’ I might choose to photograph a red cloak and a basket full of shopping.
By doing this, I won’t actually be creating scenes from fairy tales in, the audience will create them in their mind. The audience will draw on their memories to experience my photos.
The next step is to finalise which fairy tales to depict.
