Create a publication on a topic of your choice.
After a lot of decision making, I went with the topic of climate change, as it is crucial to discuss and debate this at this present moment in the world. I wanted my publication to be full of beautiful photography, but also to have a shocking impact on the reader. I created a “collectors edition” of the National Geographic, so that it would be my own interpretation of the publication. To add an extra touch of personalisation, I hand bound the spine with yellow thread to link it back to that recognised yellow of the National Geographic. This was also to allow me to be more experimental with paper size and choice. I used pages of acetate to reflect on the fact that much of the destruction we are doing to our planet is caused by littering with materials that struggle to decompose and a build up of toxins that are ruining our ozone layer, causing catastrophic effects on our planet.
