During the session in week 8, we were given the final topic for our assignment which was ‘The Journey’. Our task was to research an image that shows a stage of a journey, either physical or spiritual, the motivations for that journey and what was discovered there. This was another of my favourite tasks as although it took some time to find a suitable theme, I chose to base my piece on the both physical and mental journey of the firefighters involved in the rescue and recovery efforts after the 9/11 attacks in New York City.

During the session in week 9 we were given an overview of all the tasks we are to complete for our final assignment and time to catch up on research and reflections, this was useful as I had a number of reflections to complete and it made me more confident in knowing what was to be expected on deadline day.
