As part of my pre-module preparation I thought I would follow up on some of the recommendations of photographers I should research and links to work I might find helpful.

It was suggested that I look at Iain Sarjeant’s work The Pond. I think this should actually be The Pool and if that is so I wrote a blog in this Critical Research Journal in Week 4 of Sustainable Prospects entitled The Pool and finding ways of conveying my emotions to my audience   I also spoke about and included images from Iain Sarjeant’s work.  It was also suggested that I review the work of Crystel Lebas.  Similarly, I had written an entry in my blog in Week 9 entitled Crystal Lebas – More inspiration for the presentation of my work 

Rather than dwell on these irritations I decided to research some photographers recommended in my feedback that I had not previously considered. I started with “Robert Dench”. I searched endlessly to find a link. I found Peter French – an Irish landscape photographer that I don’t think was the intended research. Then Peter Dench who appeared to be largely recording images related to sport. Finally Robert French who is a portrait photographer. Whilst all of these links had some merit I am not sure any of them were the intended research for me.

The link in my feedback to Visit County Durham failed to open.

So, after a frustrating couple of hours I am no further forward and remain mystified as to whom it is I should be researching!
