The major printed part of my project, "Photography for publication" will be a small postcard book of approximately 20 images.
Going back to the early days of postcards, they were a form of social commentary. Barn fires, festivals, etc., were all covered by dedicated photographers, who created small runs of social events.
My intention is to do a similar thing, in an almost "anti-tourist" way, to highlight the barren nature of Weston Super Mare after the season closes.
Almost a quarter of the images associated with this project will be presented as "Postcards" ranging from the colourful, touristy images, to those of barren or derelict parts of Weston.
Linked into this, will be the ability to purchase any image from the associated website: (westonoutofseason.co.uk) as a postcard from mypostcard.com. This will not be limited to the firs tpage (The beaches part, but rather, any image the user sees fit, and they can then add their own personalised text.
Well. Here goes. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
