As a photographer with a fine art background I really enjoy producing photographs that are very process driven and engage with my inner creative artist. Often, I find myself being inspired to take a photograph, then manipulate and push that photograph to get the most creative use out of it. This particular project highlighted the moment where I finally realised and embraced the kind of artist I really wanted to be.
Along the way, artists who inspired me have included Jan Family, Maurice Scheltens and TONK. These are artists who exemplify the ability to see the creative potential in everyday objects and, most importantly, to make art fun. From these artists I learnt the true importance of keeping a sketchbook and just taking the time to explore and experiment within it.
These images in particular explore the idea of fashion being unique to its beholder. It examines how we can have a diverse range of personal styles without being labeled as part of a particular fashion scene. Fashion is in many ways just a layer, and the individual may have several layers to define their character rather than just one. This is something that I think is important to consider, and not to, as the saying goes, 'judge a book by its cover'.
