Denise Wilson’s Hymn To Vinyl
A few months ago, I ran a multimedia competition for Fotofilia’s THE CLUB and f2 clubs. Members from both clubs were invited to submit a short multimedia presentation which would be shown – and judged – at a screening evening at Birmingham’s mac (Midlands Arts Centre). Club members judged their favourites and guest judges (ace documentary photographer) Andrew Jackson and curator Karen Newman also awarded a cash prize for their own choice.
I’m going to share a few of the presentations with you, starting with this, one of the prize-winning entries by Denise Wilson. With all images captured using a 50mm f1.8 lens and cropped square, the untitled presentation could be described as “a hymn to vinyl”, using album cover-style images of her own, coupled with a clever choice of soundtrack which incorporates that distinctive “needle on vinyl” crackle.
