"Perspective" - For this project, I knew I wanted to do something in a collage form. Because of so, I chose a photo that had a lot of open space to work with. I decided to transform the photos sky into a collage style back drop that gave it a new life. For this, I chose to use primarily darker colours as I did not want to take away from the black and white elements of the original photo. Overall, my piece was inspired by the idea of changing perspectives and altering ones initial understanding of the photo.
