My motivation and intention behind creating this work was to highlight both the range of different colours and shades in familiar everyday environments that are usually either lost or unnoticed. My work aims to highlight these colours and shades in such a way that they become the main feature. This has been achieved by capturing prominent colours and identifying contrasting and matching colours within each image.
The work on a whole showcases my personal everyday life and experiences both at home and in my local area during the COVID-19 Pandemic (2020-21), thereby revealing a part of myself and my isolated life through this period.
My main inspiration has come from documentary photographers Stephen Shore, William Eggleston, Marc Provins, and Niall McDiarmid collectively, as they all explore creatively with the use of colour.
