Personal Experimentation

After looking into the work of Ashvini Ray, I wanted to experiment myself with photographing the body close up, rather than the tradition ‘full body’ portraits I usually produce.

Unlike Ray I chose to photograph in colour, as I felt it gave the work more of an uncomfortable feel, which is the aim of my project. I purposely focused on the small details such as the chipped nail polish which further adds the the feeling of unease.

If i was to carry on with this idea within my project I would focus on the physical symptoms of anxiety such as the close up of sweating palms or close up of the mouth to show shortness of breath.
