These images use ideas from Fran’s work – the hyper real blue sky of the digital image contrasted with the reality of the British weather.
I was also inspired by the work of Block VII artists, Benjamin Hartley and James Aldridge, and the chance discovery of objects found during a country walk. On my walk I found a collection of burnt, discarded newspapers. I photographed the doll amongst them, represent how certain groups, have literally been thrown away by society.
The final four images are inspired by Fran’s research into the Ophelia passage in Hamlet (where she is found drowned). The photographs taken by the river explore isolation. Many of the images are left faceless, to leave her mood and identity a complete mystery.
