February 15: #Publishing
Last month we covered different polishes of paper that you can get your photography printed on. This month, we are going to cover writing an Artist's Statement. An Artist's Statement is important if your work is being displayed, as it lets viewers know your intentions with the photograph and how you achieved creating the image.
Everyone has their own way of writing Artist's Statements, but I'm going to teach you my way, as I have found success in my method. I always start with the title of the work, then the name of the artist (me), and the date the artwork or photograph was created. Then I go into detail about my thought process behind the image, and detail the inspiring factors that went into the work. I then conclude with the physical specifications that made the image possible in camera.
Here is my artist's statement so you get the idea:
And that's all I have for you today! We will be starting a new challenge tomorrow! Yippee!
