‘What Are You Waiting For’, Zatorski + Zatorski
Zatorski + Zatorski collaborated with Barking College, whose students are mainly young adults from disadvantaged backgrounds or who initially dropped out of the education system in their teens and then returned to education to gain qualifications to enable them to find employment or find higher paid employment. The project title, ‘What Are You Waiting For’, was chosen to reflect the participants’ desire to get on. A statement, not a question.
Each student was given a disposable black & white camera and encouraged to think out of the box. The group explored the conceptual and visual potential of the theme ‘What Are You Waiting For’, developing creative ways to translate the brief and their own ideas through the medium of photography. The project enabled and encouraged each student to expand their intellectual and visual talents and capabilities through image-making.
The project was commissioned by HS Projects in 2003 and funded by the Insight Community Arts Programme (2002 – 2015).
