As I continue taking photos for my online Visual Journal, I have been revisiting and developing the idea and concept of the bath photo. Continuously experimenting with different liquids and dyes to create a visually pleasing aesthetic is what I am focusing on when producing these images. Today I played around with dying milk a different colour to attempt to gain an opaque liquid that looks unnatural. As with all these images, the work focuses on my relationships with anxiety and intimacy, and I hope by developing this concept that the visual impact will grow stronger with every shoot. More recently I have been exploring the notion of the Doppelganger or ones double self. The idea that a person has dual personalities, ambitions and desires is really interesting to me. Mirroring images is so far how i've experimented with this idea, but I intend to further this infatuation with more skilled sets and shoots, designed specifically for dual bodies. I continue to produce more bath concepts, exploring different coloured dyes, researching liquids that will separate in water to create a more visual aesthetic impact. In my previous work I have experimented with lighting and gels to create seedy imagery to give a 'Peeping Tom' impression, I played on this concept a lot in The Roseate Respective. I've ordered some lighting gels and do intend to book out some lights and explore how they will affect my imagery and final outcomes. Although mostly I have used natural lighting throughout the series so far, I think that using artificial lighting will add an allure to the work that might be missing. In these images I am mostly looking into the camera, confronting the audience, I do this because I hope to entice the viewers, and to discomfort them at the same time. When looking away from the camera the viewers are still intrigued but they are on the outside viewing the discomfort that I might feel with my anxieties. This is why the idea of the Doppelganger is important to me, to find a way to explore both qualities, to comfort and discomfort the viewer at the same time.
