Visual Research

I have been given a live project brief at uni named 'Cumbria: past and present'. We are working with the Wordsworth trust based in Grasmere. I wanted to base this project on the concept of my past and present (being home- the eden valley), and in particular a significant place to me called Dufton Ghyll, an old quarry, the blown away rock creates a beautiful wood with a stream running through it. I took photos of surface pattern and I came across some really beautiful textures, I photoshopped the images so they all have a monochrome feel with a pink tint, I really like the images, and was inspired by Roy Fleming photography, who is local, his work is really intense and beautiful, and truly captures the drama of the Eden Valley.
