I recently found out that someone has bought on of my photographs on Getty Images & it certainly brightened up my week! I was talking to some lovely ladies on Twitter & they asked to see some posts featuring some of my photographic work which I am more than happy to do! I'm never one to miss an opportunity to ramble on!
Working with film is a really big part of my photographic practice; the variety of colour saturation & finishes that can be achieved with different types of film is so much more appealing to me, though I do know that digital has it's place also. My work is predominately fine art based and also very conceptual, some may say pretentious, and at times I would perhaps agree but I don't necessarily think there's anything wrong with that!
The images in this post are from the brief set while I was at University before I decided to leave the course. Like most College/University projects the briefs are so open purposely to challenge you and your conceptual ideas & this was no different.
It ended up becoming a really quite personal body of work about my thoughts and feelings about suddenly being in such a large City that was so far removed from what I had been used to for the first 20 years of my life. The tall overwhelming buildings are upside down within the frame while the tree tops & branches and elements of nature are the right way around and are the symbol of the normality that I am so used to.
I could quite probably waffle on forever so I'll stop here & I hope this was interesting to some. You can click on the photographs to make them bigger.
Are you into photography? I'd love to see some of your photographs!
