Umbra Sumus - "We are shadows"
After researching photography focusing on surfaces and texture, I started to produce images that were influenced by my surroundings. Bath is predominantly landscaped by it's limestone architecture. I decided to study the stone and with that came a series of images taken of walls. I began to notice that a lot of the walls had living things growing in or around them. This saturated my project to a focus on the life coming from the stone. I noticed that the images that I was taking had a lot of beautiful shadows from the living things. Contrasted by the decaying walls, the concept of my images became clear. We are all temporary. We are all shadows.
