Annette Messager Inspired Shoot

Annette Messager Inspired Shoot

For my first Artist Research before my final A2 Module I choose to research into Annette Messager – I was inspired by her work of body parts and use of dark colours (Black and White & Sepia) due to how how stimulating her work was and how she could turn a normal body part and make it to seem much more.

I choose to focus on photographing the hands, eyes, nose, ears and neck. This was due to I felt these was the most personal parts on the face and the ones that would be the best to photograph as for the ear it would use a lot of Golden Section and the hands a lot of Repetition and Leading Lines.

Overall I was very shocked with the outcome, when I starting taking the photographs I was worried they would look to boring however aswell as having these as my final outcomes I created a lot of Manuals using tracing papers and even framed some to make them appear more 3D and realistic.

Below shows the final outcomes of this shoot.

Final Piece Photography – Mental Health Photography

Final Piece Photography – Mental Health Photography

As my final A2 course module – I completed a set based on bold colours to represent Mental Health.

I decided to use Photoshop to create the illusion of Double Exposure Photography and learn this through the blending options, the outcome of this was more successful than I had imagined although I faced challenges at first as I was not sure whether this would work and look stimulating enough for a final piece.

I am overall very happy with the outcome of this piece and have loved working with portraiture photography and hope to complete more of this in the future.

Below shows my outcomes of my final piece.
