This was one of my final projects for University. This work explores the way in which we interpret people via photographic mediums. To represent a person visually, we would commonly aim for a portrait, but what if we used the individuals home land to portray them. The work focusses on the lands around which my Father (Fenland) and Mother (Glasgow) were born and raised and how those two differing environments can represent them, who they are and their heritage by exploring the beauty of those landscapes.
The first image in the series was shortlisted as one of the 60 finalists for the Association of Photographers Student Awards 2017. These patricular images were taken on a Canon 5DSr with a Canon 70-200mm f/4L USM.
A series of 7"x 7" fibre based prints were created for 2 exhibitions. They were shot on a Hasselblad 500 C/M with Zeiss Sonar f/4 150mm and Ilford Delta 100.
Prints are available upon request.
