First critique went really well last week! Been continuing to formulate ideas about interview questions as well as locations for finding new subjects to talk to and photograph. I think I have come up with the desired format for my images, of all the things I’ve tried out I like the idea of a diptych the most. I’ve also played around with some new ideas about last words on Facebook, since there are close to 30 million Facebook profiles belonging to those who have passed away, and looking at the last things people posted on their walls as a sort of unintended last words. Still testing this idea out.
I’ve started The Last Words Project Facebook page to spread the word, as well as posted announcements to Reddit, bulletin boards in my building and am in the process of making cards/flyers to hand out at this year’s SPE conference in Baltimore along with other places.
The Facebook page has already gotten me a number of local people to take part in the project, as well as a few people from New York, where I will be visiting over spring break, so things are looking up!
Stay tuned and spread the word!
