Research Final zine (Not the final hand in zine)

Displayed in the link below is one of my final test zines for this current project.This is not my overall final zine for hand in. This was a test zine I created with adding in some relative research from this current project. I decided to exclude this research (test shoots/inspirational artists) in the final zine as I felt it disrupted the whole theme/flow of my final images and the important meaning behind them. I wanted the images to express my project rather than the research. Therefore I decided to keep my research just within the blog itself . I also felt the portfolio/zine looked more professional with the less research displayed. I found the most important aspect of it was the images which display the story of my whole entire project. Also my theme was based on a series of images which would all be displayed in black and white and I felt this didn’t fit as well with the overall effect I wanted to portray with the test shots and research in colour. I was really pleased with the chosen design for my final zine and I enjoyed experimenting with different layouts.

Exhibition Prints

  1. The ballet shoes represent the beginning stages of anxiety. Displaying no human face/emotions represents the shyness of that person. I also chose to shoot the ballet shoes , not just from my inspiration of Horst P Horst’s shot which I looked at within my research, but I used to do ballet as a youngster and at this stage in life was where my anxiety began to show, so I feel this fits well within my project.
  2. The middle image is in fact one of my last images within the series , representing a fashion/ confident posed shot. If my exhibition prints were to be placed on a wall I would not present them in the order I have displayed them within the final zine, as I feel personally the colours of the three chosen final prints work best in the order displayed below.
  3. The third image is one of my favourite shots throughout the whole of my series. I love the pose and tones placed upon the models skin. This image is displayed through the middle section of my series , representing the anxiety starting to slowly disappear. I also really like how the reflection from the table emphasises the model more, it makes the image even more angelic.
