Further Influences - Harriet Ensor

"Archival Photographs provide an insight into family History" - Harriet Ensor

I saw work by Harriet Ensor, a Falmouth Photography Student, on instagram around the same time that I had started to think about old and new images and how I could merge the idea of the archive with modern snapshots together. Its interesting to see how people respond to old imagery especially images belonging to their own family.

This approach of using shadows perhaps relates to the memory of the grandfather? or it maybe just that these images worked together on a purely aesthetic level. This has very much influenced my thought process moving forward working with both the found and the new photographs.
