I have captured my self in a rainy landscape to emphasise a bad Dream, as I live in North Wales where the rain never stops, creating a gloomy, moody atmosphere and I wanted to capture how hard it can be to be joyful in such a cold, wet, cloudy, landscape. I am representing defeat with my body language in these images, and the struggle to raise my head, and to not be staring at the muddy ground, I am often told to stop daydreaming. I am just in my own world. Trying to forget about the rain, trying to daydream about the blue sky and green fields and not cold, wet, grey clouds. and this is just a dream, Once I raise my head I can see the rain fading away and that this storm won’t last forever. I can’t admit to defeat doesn’t matter how lonely or lost I feel there is always some sunshine in North Wales. this is just a dream.
I wanted to create a new project over the winter to keep me occupied until it is warmer to continue shooting more self portraits
In this project I have decided to look into the detail of skin as there are many different textures on one personas body and there is so much detail. I have shot my models ribs, spine, hands (with Chalk), and stomach. I would like to focus more on skin and shoot with different models.
For this project we where given quotes to make a 3 minuet video piece. The video Piece had to be based on a quote. I had chosen a quote by Anton Chekov
“don’t tell me the moon is shinning; show me the glint of light on broken glass”
I chose this quote as I was instantly inspired and thought this would be a great opportunity to work with low light and bokeh. This video had to be created in an abstract way to create a unique piece. I was also inspired by “blink 182 Always” music video
the Isle of man is a second home to me. for such a small island it is beautiful place and would definitely recommend visiting there. TT weeks is my favourite time to go as the island is so full of life but unfortunately as i am a student I cannot visit the island during TT week as it is held the same weeks as exams are. I have visited the Island many times but this was the first time I put more passion in taking photos of the island. I captured many stunning images but I have chosen to present my favourite black and white images that I captured. My Favourite place to visit on the island is the Milners tower at Bradda Head, I enjoyed this place for the view and for the sea Cliff edges and is a perfect place to photograph.
