Hanna Fuhrmann

 At first glance I thought Hanna Fuhrmann's 'The 800 Block' is what every MA student would like to do, but could not.
Everything about this work is just superb and the subject matter is dealt with in a very quite, sensitive and respectable way.
I do tire of the type of photographer that is all about trying to shock you and force you to look at subject matter. They think they can change the world with there work, but they cannot. Fuhrmann is as far from this kind of work as you can be and its refreshing to see.
I wanted to post this work on here because visually its how I would of liked my MA project, 'Flowery Room' to have looked. Sadly it did not. (hence the MA remark at the start of this text). what I ended up with was a body of work that had people believing I was raised in some kind of repressed village and my parents lived in a small wooden shed growing scabby cabbages (it was actually my fathers allotment). Don't get me wrong, I love my Flowery project. But it just doesn't say what I wanted it to say for the simple reason, its just too personal, well thats my theory..
Anyway, enough about me.  
Theres also a good write up on Fuhrmann's work here
