Research – Where is home?

‘I don’t know how to be alone. There is a longing that I have never addressed. For even as a child, I knew I was nothing without “you”. I always needed someone to myself, who was exclusively for me. The attachment to “you” is part of what composes who “I” am. It’s not that “I” […]

Research – American Horror Story

I have always found the introductions to American Horror Story intriguing. In relation to my work I am influenced by the way that quick bursts of images have been used, sometimes not left long enough for the viewer to make out what is being shown, whichI feel adds to the suspense. The context is random […]

Moving Image

I am looking at experimenting with moving image with my work. Although I still want to produce a book, the idea of producing short videos to go along side the work appeals to me. I feel that the idea of social anxiety cannot be fully felt through just stills, and therefore adding both sound and […]

Make Up Designs

Having previously trained as make up before studying photography, I feel that I know want to use these skills within my shoots, combining this with my interest in fashion. Specifically training in theatrical/media make up, my make up style used to be very Avant-Garde, which is something that would work perfectly with what I am […]

Reflection so far

Although I am pleased with some of the outcomes from my photos so far, I feel that they are starting to become similar in regards to the space I shoot them. As I am taking most of the photographs in my bedroom at the moment, using the light from the window to create a black […]

Personal Experimentation

I wanted to look into the way we perceive mental illness, and decided to look at the way we talk and handle both physical and mental illness. A banadage is something we use to help support and cover a physical wound. By using it over the head it shows how a mental illness is just […]

Research – Kristianne Drake

Kristianne Drake produced two projects, ‘You Were Here’ and ‘Sometimes Things Just Disappear’ both focusing on mental health. Her first project, ‘You Were Here’ focuses on OCD, which Drake produced when she first was diagnosed with the illness. She observed the tea bags left on the side by her family over time. When talking about […]

Personal Experimentation

After previously experimenting with the idea of combing nature with the body, I looked into other ways off representing the two together. I looked at similarites between the body and the close up detail of nature. For example, I found that the lines of leaf were similar to that of the lines on a hand. […]

Personal Experimentation

After looking to the work of Zaklina Anderson, I wanted to experiment with the idea of using double exposure within my work. I have previously paired landscapes with my self portraiture work before, but by simply pairing them next to each on page, so overlapping them seemed the perfect way to convey what I wanted […]

Zaklina Anderson

Zaklina Anderson uses double exposures of both people and landscapes, creating a dream like feeling to her images. I found Anderson’s work interesting due to the combination of the two elements, something that I have previously used within my work. I want to carry on the idea of landscapes and nature offering peace, while producing […]
