Following on from the comments from my tutor for Assignment 3, I have created a photo book in which I have paid special attention to formatting and text layouts. I feel I have learnt from the comments my tutor made regarding the formatting of the original (photo book) version of Assignment 5 where the photos felt too cramped on the pages.
Additionally I have removed any captioning of the photographs in the book so that the viewer can let themselves find the narrative occurring within the photographs. I also added a section to the book to show more images of the gentrification process in Deptford.
Lastly I removed one of the images from the project – the one I originally captioned ‘A Vibrant Scene’ as I agreed with my tutor it was a somewhat redundant image.
Having lived near Deptford for many years now, I have witnessed massive changes in the area. Some of this has been quite gradual while recently there has been a more drastic change in appearance. The changes have, continue to and will affect Deptford and its people in profound ways and I believe it is important to document some of this changing Deptford from the perspective of a local inhabitant. In this project I aim to show the development from my point of view and how I perceive a gentrification process occurring.
Below I have attached the PDF version of the cover of the book:
