Peter Mansell’s work was recommended research for my first project, ‘My Square Mile’. His photographs of the every-day particularly influenced my assignment. He is an OCA student and there is a video discussion of his work on the OCA website – http://weareoca.com/photography/peter-mansell/(accessed 9.3.15).
The images are from low viewpoints and high viewpoints and reflect the story of Peter’s journey in a wheel chair. I find the image below powerful – it say’s wheelchair, but leaves out the person, separating the ‘user’ from the wheelchair-‘user’ (a term that unfortunately is used to define individuals and take away their uniqueness).
