Due to Covid-19 I wanted create work that I could see myself doing in the future and that I could do without breaking any lock-down rules. I started my research into the style of Vanitas, and how 17th century artists would paint objects that would symbolize a meaning behind them. From my research into that genre I decided to photograph something that I could connect with my Mother. My Mother has a collection of mini perfume bottles, most are from 1990s when she worked in London's’ West End department stores. The collection has grown throughout the years.
In my work I want the show the detail of the engraving on the bottles and the interesting shapes designed. I want to create artistic images showcasing the shapes and colors of each bottle.
