LPA Student Challenges – Challenge No 3

The challenge ;

Submit a folio of 10 images along with a 50 word description on why you are the one to watch

The reason i chose the following 10 images was because i feel that they represent my style the best.

I wanted to show off a range of conceptual ideas and creative and techniques whilst at the same time making sure that the combined 10 images worked well next to each other

Image selection:

Image 1. – Insanity
