Living in London

I have been living in London for three weeks now and today visited one of my favorite places in the world, The V&A museum. I loved the small display of the original Peter Rabbit illustrations and self-published books from 1901. I got a quick glance at the Architects Build Small Spaces exhibition and saw five of the seven small builds scattered around the museum, very inspiring. I also got to visit My Generation, a photography exhibition by Harry Goodwin who worked on the set of Top Of The Pops when it began in 1964 until 1973. One afternoon is not long enough and I am looking forward to my next visit.

The Eclectica - London Degree Show

The London Degree Show was a huge success and a fantastic evening, one of the best ever. The preparation and put up of the exhibition was incredibly stressful and panic filled but it all became worth it on the night. We had amazing support from the first and second years on our course as well as tutors, guest lecturers and guest speakers. Family and friends as well as industry professionals had a drink and enjoyed our work. I displayed three images from the Indian Summer series and five images from the Back to the Start series, as well as my portfolio and homemade pinhole camera. The pictures below show the setting up of my space and how it looked once completed.

Back to the Start

This fashion story goes back to the start of photography as it has been created using my homemade pinhole camera. It formed the second part of my Major Photographic Project. Some of the images are double exposures and some have combined pinhole and 35mm negatives to create a new photograph. They were all shot around my hometown of Eastbourne and are inspired by the natural world. Photography, Editing and Styling by Emily Jane Hurd. Model Helen Ahpornsiri
