Photograhic-ah!

Whilst Access to Art & Design students @truro_penwith have been working on Microclick images as part of their Photography unit.
Great and unusual results!

digital montage

Today`s photography workshop session was all about new blending with old.
Using Photoshop the students were tasked with creating a digital photomontage.
They referenced the work of Hannah Hoch (dadaism) and Peter Blake (pop art) to create montages based on themes, nature, outer space etc.
Using digital tools instead of scissors and glue they created there own homage to the montage.

Large scale Cyanotypes

These are large scale Cyanotypes by Foundation Art and Design student Giulia Ausenda Stanford.
They are initial experimental pieces for part of her Final Major Project where she is exploring the human form through multi-media approaches.
A cyanotype is one of the oldest forms of photography, used in the late 18th century to record flora and fauna.

Altered States – photomontage


Our 2nd year L3 Extended Diploma students spend a term studying an extra skill, one of these is photographic techniques.
These range from digital portraits to darkroom skills and this week – photomontage.
The students looked at work from Dadaism, Hockney, Angret Soltau and John Stezaker as inspiration for their pieces. They then took digital images and overworked them in various ways. Using colour, mixed media and sewing they created a range of outcomes in a style of their choice.
The results above show great creativity and understanding, nice job!
