Essay The theme set for this project is 'Growth and 'Decay'. When I think of this theme it associates the idea of life and changes, it reminds me of how things changes in life as we grow older or as the time passes by. At the beginning of this investigation I carried out a series of photography based on the observation of life. But first, I planned my ideas by looking at things that would make my work more interesting to capture and to view, also I planned suitable locations for my ideas. My first idea was to observe people on street, which is something I previously have experience, so I thought it wouldn't be the ideal to continue working in a same style.

My project is based on one particular life, which I choose to focus on. I think idea of having focusing on one particular life creates much stronger impact as I discovered during my research when I was looking at one of the series of Michals work ' I remembered the argument'. My idea is to show how life is short and how things changed. Also showing the possible view of future and how things may change in coming years. In addition I produced a series of photographs showing the past and possible future of the person. I use frame short techniques by applying my technical understanding of photography and the knowledge of using software Photoshop to create an excellent presentation of the work produce.
