Dewi Lewis Critique

Dewi Lewis visited the University of Bolton yesterday to look at our work.  He made the following comments:

  • No subtitles required in the book - which I am glad about.  I didn't like them anyway!
  • It was a good project and I was very close on it.
  • It would have been better if I had found some 'quirky' nightworkers - people who do more unusual jobs.
  • Getting a balance of images in the book - the exterior shots are fine, but the sequencing of the internal images - light v dark needs looking at.
  • Turn the grey text down from 50% to 20%-30%.
  • Consider the size.  Usually books will be 240-245 mm wide, but said it would be OK to do the larger book for the project.
