- Flick through a photo album – yours or someone else’s. Pick out any photos that you consider to be ‘artistic’. In your learning log, note down what it is about these particular images that makes them more like artworks than some of the others.

Most of the photographs look as if they could be film stills, but I’d like to imagine them being really time life situations.
