Shortly before the final hand in for university, I have also been working on producing two extra photobooks for a competition at Łódź Fotofestiwal commencing in June 2018.

I've shot digital throughout my whole life, so film is still quite a new tool to me. Since shooting in Poland, and… Continue reading Continuined experimentation with film.
As we're coming to the end of the term, and closer to the deadlines, I have had my last individual tutorials which I used to explain my ideas for the exhibition.
