Talk by Viveca Koh FRPS
Viveca will discuss how she experimented with her phone camera and developed her practice to create photo illustrations to a book fo prose and poetry which then led to her being awarded a Fellowship by the RPS.
“The use of camera phones is on the rise, as the quality of cameras integrated into these devices improves exponentially, and this happened to coincide with my quest to find a new way to express myself from a photographic perspective. During this time I experimented with the phone camera, almost to the exclusion of my DSLR, and shot many photographs in the square format that I have always loved but using lo-fi/creative camera apps. Also in 2012 I was also commissioned to create photo illustrations for a book of poetry and prose written by my uncle Fergus Chadwick, who saw some of my previously published Blurb books and wanted the same for his latest work. The images from this book formed the basis of my FRPS panel, and I will discuss this Distinction in the talk.”
