Creative Portraits

Unit 4: Techniques and Processes

With the annual Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize having opened for submissions, I was eager to create a selection of images that celebrated the latest in contemporary portrait photography. I chose themes that were relevant to my personal life but would also resonate with the competition judges as well as general exhibition-goers. Having browsed through the previous year's artists, I felt it was important to have a clear and developed message within the works I submitted. 

Handling delicate themes such as grief, dissociation and loneliness, I will document the trials and tribulations to producing reflective and truthful portrait style imagery and to which renowned artists and photographers I looked for inspiration. 

Produced using mainly in-camera photographic techniques, the images will be a 'baring all' style visual diary that soothes my own grief whilst presenting conceptual art to an audience of both the esteemed critic and unversed art enthusiast.
