Exercise 1.7: Assignment preparation

The idea for the first assignment came to me while I was on holiday in Corfu. I had already done a lot of the background reading on beauty and the sublime beforehand. While in Corfu we were staying near what the guidebooks describe as one of the most beautiful views on the island.  What started to intrigue me though was the fact that once something is described in such a way it begins to attract more and more people to come and view it; and that this then ‘spoils’ the beauty initially described. I wanted to explore this aspect, but being away, didn’t get the opportunity to email my tutor asking for comments and input. So I continued to take photographs exploring the theme and hope that my reasons for going ahead are understood.
