"Looking through" By Kate Gamblin

For this project portfolio I have chosen the brief title "looking through" all images I have taken reflect on this concept.

Black and white edited image , the use of reflection

Looking through a child's mind , envisioning of what the child's imagining in a ordinary place , a place which adults would find quite normal.

The main inspiration for these images are Elliott Erwitt, he specializes in black and white film photography , Annie Leibovitz, who also uses film, but looks strongly at portraits and finally Barassï, who often uses reflection and silhouettes in his work.

These images have been based on reflection , which hints the use of the mirror, as the model looks through the mirror to look at the camera.

Looking through natural landforms
for these images I looked at Jenny Savill's pressed flesh series of images. so I used a panel of glass to press the models face and body against.

For these series of shoots i used this white frame , and experimented with Photoshop to make the overall image more interesting and not in the ordinary.

I added all 3 of the photo-shopped images into 1 image to give a full effect of how they are missing body parts.

I refined the previous shoot and changed the location of the shoot , to outside into the forest.

i then sewed into the image , on the final print.
I then printed this image and also sewed into the final print
This was the final installment into my project , which was a refined shoot of the looking through natural / outside objects.
