Peter & The Wolf for exhibition, No. 20s Wine Bar, Penryn. Now – May

Having talked in my last Peter & The Wolf post about liking the idea of sequencing the series of portraits for an exhibition space alongside the written narrative, I was given the opportunity about 5 minutes after writing out the blog post (!) by Celine from Cartel Photos, to submit one image based on the subject of ‘Movement’ for the new Cartel Photos exhibition (which is now up and running until May!).

It was great to be able to share my new idea with Celine, who was immediately on board and within three days it was up in the No. 20s Wine Bar alongside twenty other great pieces of very varied work across the Institute of Photography at Falmouth University.

It’s all still there so all you Falmouth/Penryn people, go see the work…over a glass of wine.

After a morning of some bog-standard portraits whilst we both warmed up into our roles as photographer and subject and followed by a well deserved coffee break, I thought it might be interesting to photograph something that Dad is currently doing, which is rehearsing as the narrator to the composition and children story, Peter and the Wolf.

We’d discussed the moral and ethics of the story in the pub the previous evening and having had a recent lecture in narrative, music and storytelling, I was keen to listen to Prokofiev’s classic orchestral narrative and thought it might be interesting to photograph Dad reading it as we listened to it through loud speakers on YouTube.

I came to realise that I was creating a narrative with each picture I took, told through my Dad’s expression. My idea is to make an edit of the portraits I took throughout the 30 minute composition and caption each with the part of the narrative Dad is reading. You could even have the music playing if it were in an exhibition space.

It’s a bit artsy for me but I can’t help but like the idea.
