Innocent places - The self revealed


Please use headphones for the best quality sound.


This video explores the concept 'who am I' this is the question that enabled me to make this video I used a sequence of costumes to reveal my physical self and the settings for each pose to reveal my passion for the English countryside. Through doing this I have brought together the two threads of my lifetimes interest into 'the figure in the landscape'. Each innocent place is personalised by my figure so much so that the image become mine in the same way as a self portrait would be.
