Artist Inspiration

Taking a look back at previous blog entries, I rediscovered the images of John Davies and found these to be inspiring. John attended the University of Hertfordshire back in March this year and I found his presentation to be of interest and very informative. In hindsight, I can see that by looking at his images, I am able to gain some inspiration for my upcoming shoots. The images that can be seen below are far from what I had initially set out to take but I think that these types of landscapes will work well with my stereographic projections.

The original research I undertook can be found on this link and I have found some more images of John’s that have inspired me. It has also made me think about the possibility of producing black and white imagery.
