A gorgeous image from a Madame Yevonde book I got from my forage in the library. The colours are so rich, the subject matter beautiful, to me it is just perfect.

I wish I could take photographs like this.


I decided to go wandering in the library again. I came out with a few books, one that I have looked at a lot before is ’ Appointment with Sigmund Freud’ by Sophie Calle. I find her personal stories in her books so fascinating, the photography beautiful and the whole understated tone so inspiring.

I wish I could keep it! One of my pictures in my Silence piece was inspired by this image. I The way something can look so still but still have life about it is so interesting.

Another photo taken when working on my silence project.

When I am at university I appreciate my home town a lot more. The view from the Victoria foot bridge over the River Wye in Hereford on an sunny autumn day...Beautiful.


When photographing objects for my silence brief I took about million shots. I was trying to get a breakfast scene that looked set up but has style. I didn't use this shot but I personally like it, it reminds me of the Yorkshire tea adverts by Love Creative in a way...Even though theres are a lot better, I love the tone of the colours in theirs.

I really love setting up photographs and thinking about the styling even though I am not great at photography, I hope I can do more projects working with more art direction.
