Teaching.

I've been teaching two different groups of youth offenders for the last two weeks. Its been possibly one of the most rewarding experiences of my life so far. 4 students from my first group are planning to go on to college to study photography. I'm happy and excited for them. I've got to say though I am really looking forward to having a little bit of time off to shoot some new material. But before that i'm doing a project working with a hospital in kings cross, with a group a young people to promote alcohol awareness. Should be good.


I'd really like to start working with a writer, to do some social interest pieces.
So if you think your up to it please send me an email at charliewhatley@hotmail.com




Gonna watch this when it comes out.

Game Face.

Photographs by Robbie Cooper.

These images of kids playing video games were created by Robbie Cooper, a British photographer who employed a Red camera — a very-high-resolution video camera — and then took stills from the footage. Cooper, who says he was inspired by the camera technique that Errol Morris used to interview people in his documentaries, arranged his equipment so that the players were actually looking at a reflection of the game on a small pane of glass. He placed the camera behind the reflection so that it could look directly into their faces as they played. Cooper and his collaborators, Andrew Wiggins and Charly Smith, videotaped children in England and in New York.

Cooper, who grew up in Britain and Kenya and played a lot of video games as a child, says he tries to capture “people interacting with worlds that aren’t real.” In his last major project, which was published in the magazine in 2007, he photographed participants in Internet-based games with their virtual-world avatars. Cooper is particularly struck by the intensity of people’s experiences while interacting with digital realms. Drew Hugh, shown above, stares so intently at the screen that he doesn’t blink, and his eyes quickly fill with tears, according to his mother. Cooper says, “It’s fascinating that a world that’s purely visual can have a physical effect.”
