These photographs will be used in my final project installation, showing my childhood where I came from, what I left behind when I moved to university. The photographs are all of me with toys or having fun, showing the imagination of a child, they will accompany my sky photographs and my ghostly room photographs.
I don’t really look like my self when im not wearing my glasses. These photographs will keep the entire project personal, as it is a kind of self-portrait of my experiences at uni, and how I feel about leaving.
I love the aesthetic of the photographs, I scanned them into my computer so there are a few lines, but I don’t feel they detract from the photos. I really like the colours in the photographs, they remind me of Martin Parr photographs, and John Hinde postcards. I like the kind of vintage feel the photographs have, even though it makes me feel old. I think these images will hold the entire project together and keep people’s attention while they are looking at my images.
