The aim of this task was to analyse a style of image used in a commercial context (magazine) that inspires my work, and recreate that style of image to then contact the photo editor of the chosen magazine with a statement and the images attached. To locate my work within the context that inspires me.
I have chosen Psychologies magazine.
This magazine inspires me because it is all about the mind and what’s inside a person, and I find it very uplifting and interesting. The images within magazines such as this one are all about well being and life. Technically they are crisp, usually quite high key images, but a lot of the time are taken on location too. They aim to capture a natural aspect of everyday life and promote a healthy mind and lifestyle.
I imagine these images to be included in articles about being at peace with oneself and about happiness/well being.
