Art Direction/Photography Inspiration

Adi Goodrich, set design and art direction, collaboration with JUCO. 
These images stood out due to the bold use of colour that creates a connection between the models and their environment. In addition to this, the backgrounds depict patterns which contrast the position of the models bodies. For example, image two shows fluid lines in the background, opposing the angular shape created by the model.

Photographer, Pauline Darley




The image below is from a project, "16 and pregnant." The photograph creates a youthful, childlike image of the 16 year old, (Alice in Wonderland in style),  in order to emphasise the shock of the young pregnancy. The series is playful taking a humorous angle on the serious subject, one image showing the girl with a balloon under her top to create a pregnancy bump. The girl appears to be enjoying her childhood and suddenly it is over. 

 Here the red is really eventuated within the woodland setting of earthy tones. As is the soft fabric of the clothing with the rough stone and textural leaves.

Colours and Textures - Amelia's Anthology of Illustration

The book image below shows a poster by Melville Design from Novum magazine. I picked this one out because of the boldness of the design and the use of colour creating atmosphere.

The images below are all illustrations I really liked from a library book I found lying around in the studio, "Amelia's anthology of illustration." I am particularly interested in the use of scanned textures and the use of colour in these as I am looking to work with stronger colour combinations in upcoming projects.
