Portraiture is an art form that appears to have its restrictions; a minimal selection of poses and facial features, a small number of filters that don’t make the body look funky, and a few original portrait accounts.
I attempted to experiment while taking these images, setting out to take the photos from an alternative perspective.
For my final outcome I took inspiration from my previously searched artists such as Isabella Babola. Babola worked closely with using a mirror in some of her work which I tried to incorporate into my own. Similarly, I tried to embody Vivian Maier’s shadow reflection photos, manipulating the useful sunlight to elongate my stature just as Maier had done.
