Comparing this module to my last hand in, I am much happier with the result. I feel that the work has come together and the way I am presenting it works well with the concept. Putting the work into a book worked well for me as it gave it a much more personal feel than […]

Scratching – Test Images

After the feedback I received on my original scratching image was that it did not look aggressive enough, I decided to add blood to make it look more realistic. I experimented with adding quite a bit of blood within the first image that I have shown above, however felt that it looked to much and […]

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 […]

Thorns – Test Images

After being inspired by the work of Frida Kahlo, I experimented with the idea of blood and thorns. With the first image in the series I unintentionally formed a ‘cross’ shape when places the thorn which although subtle and maybe not noticeable to most people, links with the religious connotations that I spoke about in […]

Creating the book

Above is photo sequencing for the next sections of photos within the book. The dandelion images were all shot this week, while the self-portraits were taken for the first hand in of this module. I wanted both the photos of the dandelion and the self portraits to show deterioration. Although I am currently using the […]

Test Images – Flowers In Ice

After producing the image of me looking like I was trapped and frozen I decided to recreate it with flowers. I wanted to compare the two – comparing self portraiture with nature, and when presenting these images would pair them together. Linking back to the title of the work ‘We are merely here’, I wanted […]

Test Images – Frozen/Trapped

I thought of emotions and feelings that come with suffering from a mental illness and straight away thought of the idea of being trapped. I created the images above by laying under water and placing perspex over the top. I wanted the perspex to be clear at first, but after it started steaming up I […]

Coming self portraiture with nature

I previously looked at experimenting with piecing multiple images together to create an independent piece of art work. This was something that at the time I did find interesting but mostly looked at combining images with text, however I now want to look at this idea of combining nature with self portraits. Above is some […]
