Petrichor: A Social Study of Rain
Amy Louise Overbury's (b.1993) photographic and sensory body of work 'Petrichor: A Social Study of Rain', is an investigation into the social reaction and behaviour in response to the experience of rain; focussing on human perception and reaction in relation to emotion, environment and attire. We perceive the world through conscious experience and perception of phenomena; the project delves into the psychological effect that rain has on us; everyone has a story about the weather, whether it be positive or negative. In British culture in particular the weather is a controlling aspect of life, our emotions, reactions and attire, through experience of our environment. Large format photography is utilised alongside naturally lit portraits to epitomise the gritty reality of life.
