I am very inspired by Menno Aden’s series of ariel room photographs from his series ‘Room Portraits’. I like the ability to peer into someone’s life, gaining a snapshot of who they are though their material possessions. The ‘Room Portraits’ at once feel very intimate, yet also somewhat staged, as you are hovering above the scene in an unnatural position. I would like to recreate this tension between the real and the false in my own work, providing a snapchat of an interior, yet it be very obviously garish, and so therefore unusable, and unattainable.
