Entry 008: Light and Dark; fresh photography 

I had a really successful trip to Kew Gardens to gather some new visual research. I plan to build on my existing series of photography to create new, dark atmospheric images of surreal plant life. However, I think I am also going to create a new series of super bright, hyper-saturated images using ultra feminine, pretty florals. I have been thinking about ways in which I can begin to represent the concept of the beauty against the ugly; or the light and dark.

Moving forward, my plan is to edit these new images and continue my contextual research. Another theme that has started to become apparent is the emotional and expressive connection to jewellery and adornment. I feel this concept needs to be explored a lot more.

New key words for this entry:

  • Emotion
  • Expression/ Expressive
