I’ve chosen a fairytale project for my A level. Cliched, i know, but i’m a teenage girl – what else am i supposed to be interested in? Beginning with my Rapunzel idea, i have an idea in my head of a perfect location, the only problem is it doesn’t exist…
I made do with my Mum’s bedroom. It’s not ideal, but i love the old wallpaper (I refuse to let my parents redecorate). I chose to sit on my sister’s wardrobe as it’s the only piece of vintage-looking furniture i could find. This picture involved about 45 minutes of hopping on and off the wardrobe to press the shutter (Remind me to invest in a remote). For a spontaneous shoot i think it went pretty well..
Cindy Sherman’s Film Stills are some of my favourite photos ever. I’m writing an essay about her, but instead of writing i tend to spend ages looking at picture after picture. I love her facial expressions, the raw glamour and the way she could easily pass for a different movie star in every image. These are a few of my favourites..
I did some Sherman inspired self portraits last year. I loved it so much i broke my camera (I tied it to the top of a door and it fell off).
