Antonia Cameron, winner of third place in our Fashion photography competition talks to us about her work and her inspiration.
Since an early age I’ve been inspired by my Great Great Grandmother Julia Margaret Cameron, a Pioneer of photography. I first got into Photography seriously at school, for me it was the perfect medium for transforming my ideas into images.
I recently graduated with a BA (Hons) Degree in Fashion Photography at London College of Fashion.
I like to deconstruct ideas surrounding everyday life and everyday objects. Anything can influence my work. I like to shoot on location, sourcing different environments to help portray a feeling or atmosphere within my images. Until a few weeks ago, I hadn’t been very good at showcasing my work online, so after seeing the competition on Facebook, I thought I’d give it a shot. This competition has encouraged me to show more of my work to the public online.
These images are from my conceptual series “Through the Eyes of The Blind”.
The concept originated from the everyday object of the Venetian blind, from which ideas surrounding The Gaze evolved. I wanted to deconstruct the classic notions of the voyeur within the urban space.
By removing the boundaries of the architecture in the cityscape, revealing what was once hidden and who was looking to be seen. I wanted to reflect the paranoias felt in the city through the strange location, characters and lighting, ultimately portraying the strange world of the voyeur.
