PERCEPTION OF TIME

The work ‘Perception of time’ refers to a feeling of estrangement during quarantine and self-isolation that was imposed to combat Covid 19. I investigated this idea by creating small sets and presenting them as a diptych. We all have different experiences of self-isolation. This work is based on my personal experience when I travelled to […]

CROSSINGS

My artistic practice is concerned with understanding, recording, and translating direct experiences of the landscape and places that I visit and inhabit from day-to-day. For as far back as I can remember I have spent as much time as possible walking in the outdoors, learning ways of communicating with my surroundings, and searching for meaning within them. […]

The effect of Social Media on the human condition.

 My animated film examines the notion of loneliness in the 21st century.   Research into the loneliness of modern people is just starting to be recognised as an topic of research.  In modern society worldwide, people have  quick and convenient ways  of  communicating using  social  media  including  Wechat,  or  Weibo  in  China,  and  Facebook  or  […]

Portraits

Throughout this portfolio is a range of portraits. With portraits, I feel you can become creative and explore different styles. This style of photography is interesting and eye-opening. The photographer can capture the different personality traits of the model. As well as this, the photographer can make connections and form relationships with the people being […]
