Next week is my last Street Photography class, when we have to present our term project. After shooting over 1,000 photos of the streets of Vancouver, I am at a loss of what to present.
We need to pull together 6 to 8 photos representing “Vancouver, here and now”. There has to be some sort of thread, or theme, to the photos. They have to make a series, or a story. We are required to have these photos printed, and present them to the whole class.
The last time I sweated over a term project was probably over a decade ago when I was still in school. Oh school. I remember school. First it was Langara, then it was SFU. One time I had to write a term paper on some kind of economic theory, and I started on it so late that I cried the whole time writing it. I had no idea what I was doing, and didn’t have enough research material to put it together. I starred at the blank pages for hours and hours, hoping things will just magically come together.
I kind of feel this way right now, looking at my photos blankly, hoping some amazing series will magically come together.
Ha, nothing like some panic over a term project to make me feel young again!
