BA (Hons) Photography
I photograph a variety of subject matter, such as portraits, fashion and still life. Cinema is a big influence on my work and I aim to create a similar feel within my own photos, whilst considering the deeper meaning and narratives that it may entail.
My current practice is a project titled ‘Embracing Emotions’. We can’t control our emotions, or how we feel, but we can choose what actions to take when such emotions arise. We can numb ourselves out of fear, we can let them over-rule us to the point of no control, or we can acknowledge and accept them.
My project narrates my personal experience through this, showing the unhealthy cycle myself and many others get into. I hope to communicate that although our emotions can be overwhelming and often unwanted, once we find comfort in the uncomfortable, we effectively set ourselves free. Embrace them, before they embrace you.
