Researching Jodi Taylor’s work (an OCA student) was recommended for my first assignment, ‘My Square Mile’. http://weareoca.com/photography/photography-and-nostalgia/ (accessed 9.3.15).
I found Jodi’s objective for her work interesting – building a better understanding of the places that defined her as a child and places that shaped her. As mentioned in the OCA blog, Jodi chose colour film and small prints for the project, to reflect the era of her childhood – a format to suit the work. The writer commented that Jodi has a good knowledge of photographers relevant to her work has helped position herself, while following her own path.
This work clearly demonstrates the importance of ‘intention’ when taking photographs as art.
