Capturing The Moment

This week’s ‘Artwork of the Week’ comes from Jenna M (S5, OLSP). Β Jenna is a member of my Int 2 Photography class and has taken numerous great photographs full of atmosphere and grit. She can’t see it herself, but she has a good eye for capturing morbid imagery, with a little hint of tongue in cheek. This is the kind of photograph I love, dark humoured and layered with different meanings with every viewing. The photo above, of her dog, could be frightening or funny depending on how you read the dog’s expression. The dull browns and greys in the image make it look vintage, in a domestic setting, like you’re invited into her home for a small glimpse of a particular moment… Brilliant.
