Through class discussions, practical tasks and exhibition visits, the group have explored a combination of architectural, portrait, documentary and reportage photography, to develop a collection of images that depict their individual views and interpretations of the building, its inhabitants, and activities and events that take place there.
During the final week of the course, the group compiled the images into a single ‘portrait’ that combines the physical layering of the photographs, with a conceptual layering of the different approaches and processes explored throughout the course, and an in-depth exploration into the layers of history found in the museum.
