Task 1. Self-Portrait project. When I grow up, I’m going to be a movie star.

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.”
