Leeds & Liverpool is my learning log in blog form for the final level of a BA (Hons) in Photography. It is about the work I am doing to prepare a body of photographic work (BoW) and a dissertation (CS), based around the Leeds & Liverpool canal in the north of England.
The original intention for this work was to use the 29¼ mile stretch of canal between Skipton and Leeds to explore how meaning is attached to place. However, following my dissertation research and initial discussions with my BoW tutor, I have refined the focus. The work will now follow the more poetic theme of Leeds & Liverpool: Worlds within a World, which is explained in the blog. The images will be taken from anywhere along the 127 mile length of the Leeds & Liverpool Canal.
The blog records assignments, as periodic touch points with my tutors; directed course work; self-directed practice-based research; and a reflective journal of my thoughts as the project progresses. Most of the academic research for the dissertation is kept in a separate digital research folder (Zotero).
I welcome any comments and suggestions on the blog and can be contacted here.
