Illustrating feelings through images

November 21, 2019

My project ‘Unseen’ uses conceptual photography to illustrate the experience of people’s struggles with mental wellbeing. I use constructed imagery, digitally stitching photographs together in such a way that they present as a single, untampered image. Through this project I use photography to construct a concept or feeling rather than capturing a real moment in […]

Waiting Game

July 2, 2019

Do I ‘qualify’ to take part?

June 20, 2019

I’ve had quite an unexpected response to my call out video. Lots of people said that they felt like they wouldn’t really ‘qualify’ to take part in my project Unseen, as they didn’t feel their issue was ‘valid’ enough or they weren’t ‘mad’ enough to take part. It seems to me that this response is […]

Behind the scenes on yesterday’s shoot

June 17, 2019

The idea was to create a claustrophobic images of the walls coming in. I’m not sure how well I pulled it off, but I definitely achieved a ‘how to’ on making your living room loads smaller in photoshop!
