Finding Inspiration – Exercise 4.7 – Photomontage

This has been a fun and creative approach to finding inspiration and allowing ideas to develop. I made use of three different styles of magazine – journal, gardening, lifestyle – and added to this with newspaper cuttings.

Following the reviews which I have just completed of Hannah Hoch and John Heartfield, I can see how I can create my montages in similar styles.

The first idea relating to climate change will be in the style of Heartfield, political, topical, a dominant character, more minimalist than the style of Hoch.

My photomontage which emulates Hoch will be far more busy and explore the underlying feelings and external symptoms of eating disorders.

Both of these ideas break away from the brief slightly, but this style of art has become increasingly important to me as I develop as a photographer. There is potential for me to develop as a mixed media artist, yes it’s the early stage of exploration, but I don’t have to limit my creativity.

Of course I will follow the brief as well, and Brexit is going to be my theme.

      1. Hey.
        I’m not sure why, but WordPress won’t let me comment upon your blog posts at the moment. It tells me that I need to be logged in to comment. I’m definitely logged into WordPress. I know WordPress gets glitchy from time to time. So, I want you to know that I am still reading your posts.
