You might currently be isolating or shielding at home like many of our patients. It is a very strange time where the usual liberties we enjoy, and perhaps take for granted, are impacted by the unprecedented lock-down we are all experiencing.
Here at the hospice, Stevan, our Artist-in-Residence has been working on different ways you can be creative whilst at home. One of the projects he has started which is intended to encourage both creativity and perhaps mindfulness, is the ‘Same but Different’ photography project. Anyone can take part.
This is an exercise in quiet observation. We are all very familiar with the view out of our window, but in this project we are looking at not just the scene, but the subtly changing light. By taking the same photograph at various times of day and in different weather conditions, we are able to capture the subtle shifting of the light, perhaps something we are not typically aware of.
The idea is that you use all of your images to create a page of side by side shots of the same scene. This is something you can do yourself if you have the facilities – there are numerous photo editing apps, but it can also be done in a word processor, something like Word.
Happy light catching!
