This project is about creating a story with photographs. I feel that I have achieved that. My story is about the city life in Bank. I took some photos of Bank on Bank Holiday and I took photos of Bank on a normal busy day. I decided to have my photos start with the Bank Holiday and then go into the normal busy day.

My original idea was just to shoot Bank on Bank Holiday but I am glad that I did a normal day. This project was a bit hard for me because I don’t really like taking photos of people, I like architecture photography so it was a challenge but I think I did ok.

When it came to setting out the book on InDesign, I really enjoyed that. I really like the idea of printing out the images and creating a book. It is every different than looking at the image on a screen. When I saw it in the book form I felt that the photos flowed well, you can see the transition from quite city to people everywhere. I decided to go with a tape bound which I really liked.

Overall I am pleased with what I achieved, I really liked how it all turned out. At the beginning of the book there is a couple looking forwards the camera and at the end of the book the couple is looking away. I just liked the idea of starting off with this couple and ending with them, (even if it’s not really to do with Bank).

Here is the end results


Yesterday I went to pick up my Photobook from the printers at Holborn. Overall I am very happy with the way it looks. I think that they photo quality is really good and I am happy with the A4 size. In the past project (Fanzine) I did A2 and for this project I was going to do A3 but I’m glad that I went in the middle of those two sizes. I think that A4 is a good choice.

Here I have some photos of the book.
