“ARTISTS AT HOME”

THIS PROJECT IS ABOUT DOCUMENTING ARTISTS IN THEIR STUDIOS AT WORK.

IT’S A FLY ON THE WALL BASED PROJECT.

MY AIM WAS TO PHOTOGRAPH SEVEN ARTISTS IN THEIR NATURAL SPACE AND ENVIRONMENT, TO GET A GLIMPSE INTO THE PRIVATE WORLD THAT WE RARELY GET TO SEE.

EACH OF THE ARTISTS I'VE CHOSEN TO PHOTOGRAPH HAVE BEEN HANDPICKED FOR THEIR UNIQUE BACKGROUNDS, AS WELL AS THEIR OUTSTANDING WORK. WHETHER IT BE MY OWN GRANDMOTHER’S WATERCOLOURS, A NATIONAL PORTRAIT GALLERY ARTIST, OR A ROLLING STONE

A MAJOR FACTOR IN THIS PROJECT IS THAT AS I HAVE BEEN FORTUNATE TO KNOW EACH ARTIST PERSONALLY, I FEEL THE CONNECTION BETWEEN MYSELF AND THE ARTIST RESONATES THROUGH THE RESULTING IMAGES, GIVING AN INSIGHT TO THE WORLD BEHIND THE STUDIO DOOR.

MY DESIRED OUTCOME FOR THE PROJECT IS TO EXHIBIT 4 SELECTED IMAGES FROM EACH SESSION INTO MY FIRST SOLO EXHIBITION, ENDING UP WITH TOTAL OF 28 PRINTED AND FRAMED PICTURES.

 I ALSO PLAN TO FUND A COFFEE TABLE BOOK TO ACCOMPANY THE PROJECT.
