The year is 2007. I’m in my second year of University. I am studying an Undergraduate Degree in Visual Art, and I’m taking a digital photography class. I am tasked with making a photo book. The theme is portraiture. These are those images.
An essay should accompany this body of work, I’m told. That essay won’t be appearing here. There should be a theme that ties it all together. I have no idea what, or who to use as a portrait subject; other than those surrounding me in my class.
I’m interested in the imagery evoked by an enormous cohort of “Gothic Metal”, and I use this as my basis, with my visual style leading more to Romanticism than Goya.
