After being inspired by James Schofields work, I wanted to experiment with the idea of using objects to portray a feeling, rather than using people.
I chose to use flowers, looking at the something that will deteriorates over time. For me the two images together represent the idea of having hope and loosing hope – a constant battle that those suffering with mental health face. I used a muted colour palette, inspired by photographers I have previously mentioned as I feel it causes little distraction. It also gives a feeling of solitude, especially when looking at the second image of the dying flowers.
