Por las ventanas: through the windows.
Recently I have been looking at the relationship between windows, the figures in them and the views beyond in order to inspire a new series of art work. As part of this, you may have seen a behind the scenes video over on Instagram, documenting a research trip. I headed to the nearest city for the day, snapping as many views and “moments,” through windows as I could!
I’ve been inspired by Kat Gill’s work recently – she carried out an engagement shoot one winter looking in on a couple through a coffee shop window. I just can’t stop shooting reflections! The architecture in the city gave me so much to work with, layering windows with subject reflections, framed by the facades on the opposite side of the road.
One of the beauties about shooting in the city, is that everybody is so wrapped up in the hustle of their own lives, that you can afford to be daring. I took this image looking into the apple store and I love how the camera just captures a moment in time, unable to be recreated again…
As the day went on I found myself walking down the river, stumbling upon larger more architectural buildings and bridges. I began to experiment a little more with this idea of layering components.
I’m still experimenting with these ideas but I hope you like them!
