My project is focused on the narrative and story-telling fundamental of photojournalism. The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines photojournalism as, "journalism in which written copy is subordinate to pictorial usually photographic presentation of news stories or in which a high proportion of pictorial presentation is used." My desire to focus my project in this way has come from living on the island of Alderney. Alderney was occupied by the Germans in World War II and retains the scars of the occupation today. Bunkers, forts and gun placements litter its cliffsides and hills, whilst large underground tunnels intertwine beneath the soil. Alderney is filled with history and mystery and this has influenced not only this project, but a lot of my previous ones.
