    Remove the separation between yourself and your subject.
    — Graeme Williams

    Graeme adds...
    “Following the end of apartheid in 1994, I realized that I was no longer motivated by objective journalistic or documentary concepts. Rather, I wanted to find ways of expressing a feeling through a body of work. This involved letting go of the narrative and the idea of separation between myself and the subject.”

      I like this in bw; no one photograph competes for your attention. The lighting is lovely and has helped turn your piece into a beautiful work of art. Great take as ever Julia on the brief.

      This is such a cool idea, Julia. You often come up with the most interesting concepts. Nice!
      A thought: How might this image look if projected on your skin, Julia? What would that imply? How could one measure the distance of separation in that scenario?

      Very imaginative. Interesting concept.

      This is so good. Love seeing how you've developed this idea.

      David Emma Georgiou Katie Smith Martin Kelly Meredith Wilson Fred LePiere Thanks all for your lovely comments. Fred LePiere As you have seen, I have projected images onto skin, namely my partner Simon's. The issue is that the only way this would work would be to project onto my own front...and there may be an issue with distortion of the images(!) and also "modesty"... would almost certainly break the no nudity rule. But, for another place and another time could be a wonderful image! Thanks for the suggestion.

      I have seen your wonderfully creative work, which was the seed for this comment. I also considered the nudity thing. You wouldn't necessarily have to be nude - maybe wear a white sweater , And, with a change of scale, you could project an image on a thigh, side, back, hand or foot. I would go with the back or a hand or both hands, maybe. The hand, as a symbol, is perennially ripe for meaning. I must admit, Julia, that your image has changed the course of my thinking for this brief. The concept has not yet solidified, but the trajectory has made such a sharp left - it almost wrenched my neck! My thought processes at this point are trying to fit my idea into straight photography without the aid of Photoshop. My concept is fully rooted in Photoshop - its just how I think. Making the translation will require much more effort with less than ideal results.

      Fred LePiere It's quite a challenge to move from ideas and concepts rooted in Photoshop and make them by "traditional" photographic techniques. I hope you find a successful resolution to the problem and look forward to seeing the outcome.
