Video – Test Clips

I used a simple black and white theme for the quote, linking with the black studio setting that I have used for the both the photos and video clips. The text appears fairly small, giving the impression of being isolated and alone – all feelings linked to mental illness. I experimented with blood dripping down […]

Drowning – Test Images

After producing the rose images submerged in water, I produced a self portrait image to go in the series. Where a lot of the others self portrait images I will be putting into the book show my face, I wanted to produce one that wasn’t so obvious. Showing simply a hand, gives the impression of […]

Rose in Water – Test Images

I wanted both the photos of the dandelion and the self portraits to show deterioration. Although I am currently using the […]

I decided to choose 3 images for my final selection of dandelion photographs. I chose them because they tell the story of the plant loosing its seeds in three different ways. The photo series also links to title ‘I am destroyed’, with the loss of seeds making the plant appear weaker. For the first image […]
