I love going the Saatchi gallery every so often as you never really know what to expect. I have been before with many different people and their reactions at the work have been between utter disgust, surprise and awe. Some people walk into the gallery momentarily, only to exclaim ‘That’s not art!!’. I enjoy the fact that the works generally elicit some sort of reaction in the viewers. I am admittedly more of a fan of painting so I found a lot of inspiration in the many different styles on show, looking at these images again I really need to get into making some more of my own work again. Here are some pictures of my favourite paintings, sculptures and drawings there at the moment some of them are a bit shocking but at the same time interesting:

I always had an interest in photography, but it wasn’t until my first year at uni that i learnt how to develop my own film and photographs. In the second semester I looked at photographers Michel Tuma, Bill Brandt, Robert Frank Rodchenko and Anne Liebovitz. Here I have posted som images from my sketchbook.

My first film and contact sheet

Pinhole camera experimentation- The most basic camera involving a pinsized hole that forces the light to project the image outside. The negative mage is then reversed by shining light through it onto another sheet of photo paper.

Sandwiching negatives- This created double images, I could have also put the images on the paper with different amounts of exposure seperately for more controlled effects.
