Beauty in the Background
This photographic collage series encourages you to take a moment and look at your surroundings.
“There is something ghostly in the photos which I love, they kind of reflect how empty and lonely everyone can feel at times. To encourage people to observe and appreciate how beautiful the “background” of where you are is encourages people to focus and the physical space rather than the physicality of the person”
“As I removed all the initial subjects of these photographs I wanted to highlight that the appearance, size, ethnicity, gender of people doesn’t matter to appreciate the beauty of them”
“By learning about them by their positioning you don’t make the same initial assumptions as you do when you pass someone in the street, you can’t tell anything more about them than their silhouette. By leaving just their pure physical outline you are forced to look more into what is around them rather than focusing on the subject’s themselves”
