Even though my work seems a million miles away from that of John Blakemore’s, there is a lot more in common then first meets the eye.
i basically decided to photograph a lady’s make-up table, capturing the use and the frequent movement of objects as they were being used.
I have tried to to keep it as an ‘obsession’ like Blakemore did, i did this by taking series of images in different light (always trying to use the best natural light i could, which was more difficult than i first thought.) I also tried to capture the different sides of objects as they were in use over weeks.
Here are a few rough images and ideas of my first few attempts.
Even though it may be quite hard to see the references, you must understand the aspects of in which it is referenced.
– I find John Blakemore’s photos quite jumbled and ‘full’.
– The different aspects of beauty
– the obsessive compulsion towards the work in hand.
