This project looks at the study of my environment and the exploration of self within my home. I have used a documentary style of photography combined with self-portraits.
Throughout this project, I had a focus on following the light around my house in order to observe the pattern within my environment. Through the use of light and the observation of how light behaves, this project explores patterns and the nature of interacting with the environment I am in. During the first lockdown, I found I felt trapped within my home and my creativity temporarily died off and I felt as if I was trapped in a mental rut.
The world we loved and knew has been taken away and thus these self-portraits depict the way in which I personally felt during these turbulent times. Overall these works were my way of creatively exploring and documenting the time spent during isolation. These artworks are a reflection of the way in which I used my creativity to explore my internal self and environment. This project enabled me to creatively explore my emotional and physical state during this time and focus on the new world in which we must begin to understand.
