Photo  Manipula8on   What  is  photo  manipula8on?  :  Photo  manipula8on  is  the  applica8on  of  image  edi8ng   techniques  to  photographs  in  order  to  create  an  illusion  or  decep8on  a@er  the  original   photographing  took  place.  Many  ar8sts  choose  to  pursue  lives  in  photo  manipula8on   because  of  its  very  accomplished  work  in  making  the  surreal  look  real.     •  Many  ar8sts  that  are  famous  because  of  there  work  in  photo  manipula8on  such  as  Kyle   Thompson  (le@  image),  Fiddle  Oak  (middle  image),  and  Lissy  Elle  (right  image).     •  The  images  that  are     Shown  on  the  right  are     Examples  of  the  three  ar8sts     Work  that  they  have  made     During  their  work  in  photo   Manipula8on.  I  have  chosen     Them  because  I  believe  that  each  one  is  unique  to  each  ar8st,  Kyle  Thompson  presents  a  large   variety  of  work  that  is  very  similar  to  this  one,  face  covered  completely  and  is  being  suspended   by  a  sheet.  This  love  for  that  style  can  tell  us  about  the  ar8st  and  how  he  may  feel  separate,  he   feels  there  is  something  controlling  him.  Or  the  love  may  come  from  just  pure  interest  of  that   style,  the  difference  to  other  styles  of  manipula8on  may  just  be  preferred.  The  work  of  fiddle  oak   is  again  work  that  can  be  seen  on  other  pieces  of  her  work,    she  enjoys  using  photo  manipula8on   to  put  people  into  smaller  situa8ons,  this  is  admirable  and  effec8ve  in  photo  manipula8on.  Lastly   Lissy  Elle,  her  work  isnt  massivly  represented  by  this  photo,  which  is  why  I  enjoy  her  work  so   much  as  it  is  all  very  different  with  no  direct  paTerns  or  styles.     •

Photo  manipula8on  is  achieved  by  the  tools  given  to  us  on  photo  shop  and   combining  images  together  to  end  up  with  a  surreal  looking  photo  that  looks  like  it   has  been  taken  with  just  a  camera.  The  use  of  Photo  manipula8on  can  range  from   modern  art  to  business  or  just  person  sa8sfac8on.  All  the  same  its  outcomes  are  to   be  admired  when  done  well  as  the  effects  that  people  can  make  via  photo   manipula8on  are  astonishing.     If  I  was  to  choose  photo  manipula8on  I  feel  that  I  would  try  and  look  into  different   effects  that  can  be  achieved  to  find  out  which  one  I  prefer,  by  this  I  mean  looking   at  examples  from  Kyle  Thompson,  Fiddle  oak  and  Lissy  Elle.  Once  I  have  thoroughly   seen  the  different  ways  of  manipula8ng  photo’s  I  will  choose  a  style  and  con8nue   down  that  path.  At  the  present  8me  I  enjoy  the  effects  of  having  a  small   environment  look  larger  than  it  is  and  seVng  myself  into  sed  environment,  this   effect  is  very  simple  but  if  set  up  well  the  outcomes  can  be  outstanding.  If  I  wasn’t   to  choose  that  path  then  I  would  choose  more  work  down  the  lines  of  Kyle   Thompson  where  the  images  are  surreal  in  a  normal  sized  environment.

There  are  a  variety  of  people  that  are  famous  because  of  a  par8cular  quote/saying.   The  quote  normally  revolves  around  what  that  person  does  or  did  at  the  8me  the   saying  was  started.  Some  of  the  biggest  famous  quotes  are     ‘All  the  world's  a  stage,   And  all  the  men  and  women  merely  players;  They  have  their  exits  and  their   entrances,  And  one  man  in  his  8me  plays  many  parts,His  acts  being  seven  ages.’  –   William  Shakespeare.     ‘Before  God  we  are  all  equally  wise  -­‐  and  equally  foolish.’  –  Albert  Einstein     ’I  am  the  punishment  of  God...If  you  had  not  commiTed  great  sins,  God  would  not   have  sent  a  punishment  like  me  upon  you.’  –  Genghis  Khan   Other  examples  are:     ‘Imagina8on  is  more  important  than  knowledge’-­‐  Einstein,   ‘Intelligence  is  the  ability  to  adapt  to  change’  -­‐Stephen  Hawkins,   ‘Be  the  change  you  want  to  see  in  the  world’  -­‐Gandhi  


Quote   On  the  right  are  two  examples  where  quotes  have  been  used  and     Adapted  to  match  what  they  actually  say.  The  first  one  (top)  is   unique  to  itself  because  the  style  of  wri8ng  is  strange  which  is   exactly  what  the  quote  is  talking  about  making  it  very  effec8ve.   The  second  image  shows  a  different  way  on  how  the  words  can  be   changed  to  fit  the  quote,  by  having  the  faded  wri8ng  it  again   shows  the  uniqueness  of  the  image  by  the  double  quote  being   hidden  which  is  what  the  wording  is  about.       If  I  was  to  choose  quotes  I  would  use  examples  like  these  to  help   me  persue  a  very  effec8ve  outcome  of  a  final  piece.  I  feel  that   these  types  of  quotes  are  the  most  effec8ve  as  they  use  more   texture  to  further  explain  or  show  their  ul8mate  meaning,   because  of  the  way  the  present  this  I  feel  they  would  be  one  of   the  beTer  routes  to  follow  in  using  quotes.

Alzheimer's   Alzheimer’s  is  a  cause  of  Demen8a  and  is  a  disease  that  most  occurs  in  elderly  people  causing  them  to   loose  their  memory,  this  may  be  forgeVng  names  and  faces  of  well  known  people,  misplacing  or  keeping   items  in  strange  places  and  in  general  a  constant  confusion  throughout  the  day  making  normal  life  difficult   for  them  and  others  around  them.     •  From  the  image  on  the  right  you  can  see  how     Alzheimer’s  actually  affects  the  brain  physically.     this  happens  because  amyloid  plaques  start  to  build     up  all  over  the  brain  and  cause  problems  in  those     areas  for  which  that  part  of  the  brain  controls.   • 

•  Mild  Alzheimer’s  Disease   As  Alzheimer’s  disease  progresses,  memory  loss  worsens,  and  changes  in  other  cogni8ve  abili8es  are  evident.   Problems  can  include,  for  example,  geVng  lost,  trouble  handling  money  and  paying  bills,  repea8ng  ques8ons,   taking  longer  to  complete  normal  daily  tasks,  using  poor  judgment,  and  having  some  mood  and  personality   changes.  People  o@en  are  diagnosed  in  this  stage.   •  Moderate  Alzheimer’s  Disease   In  this  stage,  damage  occurs  in  areas  of  the  brain  that  control  language,  reasoning,  sensory  processing,  and   conscious  thought.  Memory  loss  and  confusion  grow  worse,  and  people  begin  to  have  problems  recognizing   family  and  friends.  They  may  be  unable  to  learn  new  things,  carry  out  tasks  that  involve  mul8ple  steps  (such  as   geVng  dressed),  or  cope  with  new  situa8ons.  They  may  have  hallucina8ons,  delusions,  and  paranoia,  and  may   behave  impulsively.   •  Severe  Alzheimer’s  Disease   By  the  final  stage,  plaques  and  tangles  have  spread  throughout  the  brain,  and  brain  8ssue  has  shrunk   significantly.  People  with  severe  Alzheimer’s  cannot  communicate  and  are  completely  dependent  on  others  for   their  care.  Near  the  end,  the  person  may  be  in  bed  most  or  all  of  the  8me  as  the  body  shuts  down.   Informa8on  from  (hTp://www.nia.nih.gov/alzheimers/publica8on/alzheimers-­‐disease-­‐fact-­‐sheet)    


Alzheimer’s   If  I  was  to  choose  to  base  my  project  on  Alzheimer’s  disease  then  I  would   concentrate  on  the  effects  of  Alzheimer’s  and  how  it  affects  the  brain  physically   rather  then  mentally,  I  believe  that  doing  so  would  be  effec8ve  as  it  would  clearly   show  how  each  stage  takes  place  and  what  parts  of  the  brain  are  affected  over   8me.  However  I  wouldn’t  completely  remove  the  mental  parts  of  the  disease,  but   the  focus  on  physical  change  is  a  different  approach  to  how  Alzheimer’s  is   normally  presented.     •  Gerhard  Richter  is  an  ar8st  that  has  worked  on  Alzheimer’s,  here  are  a  few   examples  of  his  work:     •  These  are  good  examples  of  Alzheimer’s  as  they   Show  how  people  are  forgoTen  and  how  faces  get   Mixed  up  in  photo’s.  Gerhard  Richter  has  edited  these   Two  photo’s  in  that  exact  way  as  the  faces  are  distort-­‐   ed  and  the  whole  of  the  boTom  image  is  covered     Showing  how  people  are  forgoTen  via  having     Alzheimer’s  Disease.   •
