Nigel Richards ARPS
I successfully completed an MA in Photography at DeMontfort University Leicester under Professor Paul Hill.
The set of work shown in the portfolio is the first of four sequences created for my MA project \\\"From Above\\\", which researched the concept of taking photographic images exclusively on the theme of looking down and the effect of this perspective on perception.
Initially appealing was the way an elevated viewpoint can isolate and expose an almost abstract quality to what are familiar objects; however the new perspective also revealed that there would often be a commonality of shape, pattern or form between very diverse objects that had previously been invisible from a more normal viewpoint. The desire to retain this relationship between the images in the final portfolio resulted in them being presented as non narrative sequences.
These sequences are referred to by myself as Transitions: - the act of passing from one state or place to the next.
The first and last image of the Transition could be said to be only related by the sum of the images in-between.
