Holly Baby

Back at the beginning of the year i worked on an exciting new method of making pictures - hand-painted photographs! All because of a collaboration with photographer Micaela Hoo - Based on the classic film Breakfast at Tiffany's, and utilising a prior photoshoot that she snapped so lovingly.
 Micaela and i decided upon a technicolour theme and so i decided to alter her photos in a way that was reminiscent of the process of hand tinting film, the way they used to do it in the old days. It was a fun concept to play with - embellishing ready-made images instead of creating them from scratch, and i hope to play around with this idea a bit more in the future. (if i can fin any time apart from this gruelling study schedule i've got going on...)
