i'm trying to think very hard on what i can do for my third year project. what could be the least pretentious, but also something new and with meaning. who wants to just churn out something thats been done a million times before. so i thought maybe the best thing for me to do was to focus on what i know, my own culture. this insider outsider culture has been done often by people but i don't know anyone who has done it from my angle, a young adult member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in england. i have so many people who get quite shocked over the fact that i am religious and not just Christian but Mormon. i want to break down the stereotypes which are not negative or prejudice but just unknowing.
well i guess we'll see what this develops into but i'm going to start by photographing as many people as a possibly can at the ysa convention this year. surprisingly members if my church are extremely normal looking and have a huge variety of interests and talents. they all dress quite differently and are from lots of nationalities. right.
plus it's the easiest place to get photos like this, they'll all be coming to me.. maybe if i provide munchables.
