Diary based only on what you see and hear.
The interaction, culture and way people behave.
Outsider looking in but part of the group at the time.
Detached as diaries usually include your thoughts.
Seen through eyes of the person recording.
Silence- changes the tempo and atmosphere of the video.
Sound spends a lot of time not being clear so to give impression of a lot going on or the creator is zoning in and out of what is happening around them.
Images show what is happening/ remains.
Information given half way through – attack on a village people have ran.
Destruction happening, humour in hurting each other – reminisces to an easier/happier time where people care for each other.
Composition shows a world upside down. A different world.
History represents the same over and over of fighting, the sound of many stories the same all being told.
Watching what is happening as an outsider.
Living one world but seeing a different happening at same time.
Create images so to try and get an understanding of what is happening.
This video I felt had 3 key features throughout it. These were:
- Outsider looking in but part of the group at the time.
- Living one world but seeing a different happening at same time.
- Create images so to try and get an understanding of what is happening.
RICHIN – Richin perspective about this video would be that it be used to stop wars and to see the actions from different point of view, that of the rebel fighters and the opposition.
This is similar between the two’s point of view as Hetherton’s is trying to understand the point of view of the rebel’s so to have an understanding why it’s happening. While Richin would view both sides so to make a difference through his photography so to bring calm.
I found this talk to be interesting as the idea to view both sides according to Richin was unique to me. Yet here Hetherton’s video is suggesting that you also compare it to yourself and your own life. So to consider how it affects you, so that self-realization is key. Something that I like to try and portray through my imagery as much as I can.
