Personal Experimentation

I wanted to continue with the idea of producing self portraiture images, yet my face not actually featuring within the shot. The anomonity creates a feeling of unease, especially within these images. Although I am not completely happy with these images, the concept works well for me. I wanted to focus on the idea of […]

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 […]

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 – Francesca Woodman

Francesca Woodman creates haunting self portraits, which become more poignant when knowing she suffered from depression and took her own life at the age of 22. Her work was arguably not noticed while she was alive, but after her tragic death the work took on a whole new meaning and gave importance to it. Using […]
