The heads


Emma Dove

This image was captured in error during a graduation ceremony in Glasgow, 2016. Inevitably, I was trying to get a photo of the graduate that I was there to applaud, however the light and movement made it difficult.

I like the layering effect captured in this photo and the composition reminds me of a classical painting. Different details reveal themselves when I zoom in to certain parts of the image and it has given me the idea of making a series of works by cropping in to different portions of the same image. I have since tried experimenting to replicate the effect, however this accidental one remains the best so far!
