For our Image Making session we have to create a set of Self Portrait images. After researching and lectures given buy our tutor I got inspired by work of American photographer Cindy Sherman who is famous for creating a set of self-portraits which looks like stills from Alfred Hitchcock movies
I’m fascinated by films of the 50s and the 60s. My favorite actresses are Marilyn Monroe and Brigitte Bardot and I decided to recreate cinematic stills inspired by the stills taken from their films. I used Tripod to create these images and I think they went quite well.
These series of images are called: “When I grow up, I’m going to be a movie star.”
this one is inspired by Brigitte Bardot.
This one is inspired by Marilyn Monroe
and this one is inspired by Catherine Deneuve in Roman Polanski “Repulsion”.
And here are the images that I used for my inspiration.
