Photography

Photography has always been very close to me and my creative process, even to the point of questioning weather a degree in photography could be an option for me. Ultimately, Graphic Design offers me more than Photography could. Moreover, the way I use photography combines aspects of illustration, drawing and graphic design. I’ve really never seen why photography as a medium is not used more experimentally. I have issues with artists using photography in limited approaches; the usual portraits, landscapes, black and white filters to mask their conventional approach… why not make abstract photography, turn your camera off Auto and just play. I see a strong connection between Graphic Design and Photography, particular since I want to move into publishing. Magazines have always interested me, not for their content, but purely layout and photography.
