Film experimentation

I have started experimenting with creating short clips of nature – not necessarily parts of it that look attractive, but that which shows signs of decay and are not what people would view as aesthetically pleasing. Here is the first clip that I captured without sound. The video is very simple, yet the movement of […]

Potential Shoot Locations – St Mary’s Church

I previously photographed at St Mary’s Church in Tintern for a college project. The overgrown ruins and graveyard makes the perfect spot for creating image’s with an uncomfortable feeling to them. Although I do not necessarily want the whole church within the background as there are no need for religious connotations within my work, I […]

Potenital Shoot Locations – Cannop’s Valley

Forest of Dean is the one of the areas that I am looking into to produce my photos. Not only would the area make idyllic backdrops for my images, but I would be able to find a location that was more private than that I previously wrote about in my last post. This would enable […]

Potential Shoot Locations – Local

Having recently moved house, I explore the local area to see if there was anywhere local that I could potentially shoot. I was looking for open space that I could incorporate into my ideas. I found the above locations a few minutes from my house. Although I do want to photograph somewhere a lot more […]

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” […]

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 […]

Research – Laura Zalenga

Laura Zalenga’s work is predominantly self portraiture, using epic landscapes as a backdrop for her images. She often appears without clothes in her work which for me creates a vulnerability and rawness. This is something I often do within my own work for the same reason, vulnerabilityShe often appears without clothes in her work which […]

Research – James Schofield

James Schofields work uses abstract photography as a way to express his struggles with mental health. When describing the work he states it ‘explores and reconciles my own struggles with mental illness and the ever increasing notion of feeling disconnected from the world’. His work is inspired from the feelings associated with mental illness, such […]

Research – Gabriel Isak

Gabriel Isak cleverly combines landscapes with his subjects to give the impression of loneliness throughout his work. ‘I work a lot with self-portraiture, but it’s always anonymous and abstract, for the reason that my work is so personally inspired that I know exactly how I want the subject to look in an image.’ The above […]
