In today’s lecture Steve had shown us different artists who collaborate with other people who are not in their field of work, and some people who are in their field of work. EG Fashion photography collaborating with a hair stylist.
The importance of collaborating with people is that it develops creative practice, yours and theirs. For example Warhol and Basquiat were two completely different people yet they collaborated and created something that both of them can benefit from.
From Steve’s talk I feel like I understand why it is important to collaborate with other people and how it can be beneficial to you. I feel that this will help me gain confidence to collaborate with more people in my future work, which will make me a better photographer.
