The Digital Age of Vintage Concepts

Unfortunately this project was not successful.

My project is devoted to a history of Britain replicated in a series of photographic still lifes of vintage style with personalised content.

I was influenced by classic art movements within the still life genre in photography and visual arts. I enjoy recreating an atmosphere of a bygone era realistically, using a camera and digital controls to illustrate my ideas precisely. A sense of human presence is an important factor in my works. This approach helps viewers to feel like a part of a scene in the proximity of vintage objects used by ancestors. I have explored the methods of pioneers in photography since the beginning of the 19th century. Historical studies contributed to the balance between creative thinking and rational motivations. I have learned to apply visual oppositions to my concepts, such as light and shadow patterns, multiple reflections, control and randomness, stability and activity, and different kinds of textures to demonstrate familiar objects from a new perspective. Images will include a personalised content that is possible to change digitally: a desk calendar, personal letter, or portrait in a picture frame. This approach helps modern individuals transfer the depth of sensations and beauty from past to present. Final works will be represented in a virtual gallery; digital blurb book; physical prints for the interior; digital and printed personalised postcards. Please view similar images on my web page:
