This week we were lucky enough to receive a video from Southwark-based photographer and community organiser Bella Okuya.
In the video Bella presents Southwark Rooms participants with a photographic challenge around the idea of...
YOUR ROOM AS A METAPHOR FOR YOURSELF
Questions to consider:
How do the rooms in your home reflect an interior part of you?
What room most represents an unseen part of you?
Are you going to photograph all of the room or just a part of it?
Are you going to approach it from a still life, interior lifestyle, portrait or any other genre of photography?
Will it be a series or a single photo?
Join us on instagram for a conversation about this challenge.
Or if you'd like to chat to someone about your work, you can text/call our project hotline +447896749760
This week, Rachel Sale, founder and co-director of Southwark based arts organisation F.A.T. Studio, made a short video for Southwark Rooms participants. In it she talks about her own approach to the project and how the way you choose to make a drawing can support the message within it.
