a favourite for its contrast between strong focus and blur, and those dreamy colours you associate with 70s photography. you know the kind, with the hippies dancing around in the fields (referring to a recent editorial that was done similar in i.D)
this series, 'Illusions of a Remembered Past' is the outcome of her research into the relationship between the photographic image, the imagined image, and the act of recollection. Rardin has explored the imagined spaces of our remembered past, using landscape imagery, portraying fragments of forgotten moments. examining photography's ability both to recall the actual past but also to create an illusion of a past that never was.
another nottingham trent graduate, georgina humphrey looks more at creating photographs suitable for an editorial spread.
the light is beautiful and i adore the effect the soft focus makes. like an old photograph...gah! one for the future maybe?
again having a sneaky peak through the free range show (this time while it was setting up :|.. not that we err.. noticed?)
one photographer from nottingham trent university that stood out, not just for her beautiful representation of something slightly stomach turning but the way it was exhibited and the way it drew in the on lookers.
hanging sheer layers of a textured fabric allowed you to walk in between and around the suspended hearts, creating a different illusion and representation from every point of view.

my last shoot of the academic year.
influenced by possibly my favourite author of all time.
playing with his children's tales that are dreamy and inspiring with the very dark and twisted hidden humor that dahl himself created.
