The Royal Photographic Society offers 3 levels of Distinction; Licentiate, Associate and Fellow. The RPS says ‘Associate distinction requires applicants to submit a body of work/project consisting of 15 images and a written Statement of Intent and a Presentation Layout. The images must be of a high standard’.
My Statement of Intent reads as follows:
The London Underground is a national icon and one of the largest urban transport systems in the world.
When I use the Underground, two aspects of it are particularly prominent to me:
Firstly, its architecture, old and new, modern and art deco,
Secondly, the people that use it, interact with it and move through it.
This portfolio of images is focused on capturing these characteristics.
