I am currently looking for a job, and if you have been paying attention to the news of late, you will know its near impossible at the moment for young people. So because of this I have decided to keep at my blog as it has been neglected recently. I have always thought that I wanted to get into gallery work, I have always dreamed of owning my own art gallery in Paris, though I not planning on giving up on that dream anytime soon, I feel I need to concentrate on what I want to do with my life right now. It suddenly occured to me that I have been missing obvious clues to what I what to do with my career. At university I used my photography to explore social and enviromental issues effecting our lives and in my dissertation I addressed the issues of the way photography is presented in the mass media. Taking this into consideration I have decided that I want to get into photojournalism. At the moment I am starting a project on the protests against a incinerator being built in my community, I am using a documentary approach but as it is a current issue I think it borders the line between documentary and journalism.

Anyone that has any ideas on how to approach a career like this and get a foot in the door, your comments are welcome.

On a different note, At christmas I was lucky enough to get a copy of ‘A Year In Photography’, for those that haven’t seen the book, it contains 365 photography, each one taken on a different day of the year. Today was Chris Steele-Perkins:

Just purchased the book Instant Light Tarkovsky’s Polaroids. Here are a few images from the film maker. They all have a cinematic quality, really reflects Tarkovsky’s talent.

This is not a biscuit.
