Once given the brief, my mind went blank. Coventry? All the areas are in Coventry? WHY? But upon further investigation I realised that certain areas of Coventry strike some highly personal chords within my family history and interests. I was born and raised here after all. The following posts outline ideas and thoughts I initiated when first viewing my three chosen locations.
But first, here is a timeline of a week from my life back in 2010:
Monday 22nd February 2010
I visited Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II-Birkenau
Tuesday 23rd February 2010
Meeting about our experiences of Auschwitz
Wednesday 24th February 2010
School, Skins Episode on E4, Effy attempts suicide
Thursday 25th February 2010
School, Father commits suicide 21.30pm
Friday 26th February 2010
Teacher training day, I learn of my Father’s death at 9.03am
These events have all formed a connection through this project and so the I chose the following three maps to research and ponder upon developing into a photography project.
