Rowdeford Topographical Portraits
Inspired by Drayton’s chorographical project, a series of thirty self-portraits were created by students at Rowdeford School in Devizes. Each work explores the profound connections between the individual and the land, images of self juxtaposed against places of great meaning and potency.
Fiveways Topographical Portraits
Fiveways school in Yeovil also explored ideas of drawing one’s identity from the landscape and topography around us. Students worked on intricate collages juxtaposing places important within their lives and histories with Hole maps. They also went into the countryside and local parkland to take self-portraits against the landscape: the first selfies many of them of them had ever taken. The result is powerful, cohesive groups of works
