Dream Assignment

My dream assignment would definitely be subject to documentary photography and I’d want to use film. Following on from my picbod assignments last year, my favourite was by far photographing my tribe. I’ve always wanted the opportunity to expand on this and not only photograph my own tribe, but to challenge myself and photograph somebody else’s tribe.
I enjoy the idea from Alec Soth’s series Niagara, where he photographs by the Niagara Falls, but instead of photographing the obvious, he chooses to document the people who visit and who live around the area.
‘For Alec Soth, Niagara Falls wasn’t merely a tourist destination but a place whose cultural identity let him explore the human inability to sustain the intense emotional peaks of new love and passion.’
An assignment where I could get to a tourist attraction or something similar and document the unexpected.
It would be a dream to be working for say Magnum and be set an assignment like this, to be sent to a country and have the freedom to document a story from a tribe which i find of interest.
