Inspiration: I believe everyone has a passion, and mine is photography. I've been taking photographs for as long as I can remember, and I have fond memories of being allowed to use my mother's film camera when I was young. I think this early introduction to photography has meant that I often work with analogue photography today, and particularly enjoy the craft and process of developing my own films and creating prints from the negatives in the darkroom. I do however also work in digital too, but I try to limit myself from manipulating my images after I've taken them, as I feel that if a photograph is composed well, it doesn't need to be altered. William Eggleston and Stephen Shore are two photographers whom I love and who have inspired my photography a lot in the past. I have also been exploring the work of photographers who use Twin Lens Reflex cameras such as Diane Arbus, as I love using cameras which may be seen as old fashioned and therefore unusable by a lot of people.
Description: To create this image, I combined old and new photographic processes. I took the two photographs in a traditional London Cafe using colour film on my Nikon SLR. I then scanned the prints into the computer and used Photoshop to repeat and layer the images, creating this pattern. I love how each part of the image seems to frame another right down to the center circle of the piece. I've always loved bold and abstract patterns so I decided to incorporate this into my photography, and this image was my best outcome.
