Charlie Ball MA Photography

Charlie Ball

My work combines analouge portrait photography with archive material, sound, film and found objects. My MA project explores the elements which make up a portrait of a person, in this case my Great Aunt Sheila Stiles. I wanted to emulate the same principles of a conversation, where the viewer chooses how much they learn about Sheila, it is a sensory biography of Sheila and her life relfected through the photographs, sound, objects and film. 

My other photography work explores moments of the people and enviroments i am surrounded by, i also wish to continue exploring the realtionship between archive material and photography through more long term portraits of one individual. - a link to the whole body of work is
