Film and sound experimentation

I have always had a interest in writing, as well as speech and quotes. This is something that I experimented with in the very first module on this course, looking at pairing images with quotes that I had written which implied what it was like to live with social anxiety. Although the sound I have […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 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 […]

Personal Experimentation

Over the last few months I experienced symptoms of depersonalisation – feeling disconnected from myself and everything around me. I experience this when my anxiety is heightened, and wanted to photograph this experience. I have previously experimented with self portraits being out of focus, yet I feel this is more appropriate now than before. It […]

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 – Brooke Shaden

Self Portraiture is at the heart of Brooke Shadens work. Her fine art style is driven by her personal battle with social anxiety, using the process of capturing the photos as a way of coping. Her reason for using herself within her images comes from being more comfortable photographing herself than others. Also being a […]

Proposal

Proposal For this module, I intend to continue with the work I have already been producing so far on the course. The subject of mental health and my personal battle with social anxiety will remain a strong focus throughout the work, however I want to add more of a fashion element to the work so […]
