SAW: Keepsakes at Victoria Park Project, Summer 2011

I volunteered for a Somerset Art Works project called Keepsakes with Sophy Denny. I have been photographing the workshops over summer 2011 and shooting & editing portraits of everyone involved. Above are a selected few of portraits taken with an excerpt of their written memory. This was aimed for all ages and to get the community to share their memories of Bridgwater. There were various free art workshops throughout the summer where local people were invited to bring in their keepsake. These workshops were held at Victoria Community Centre. The workshops have been leading to creating a map of Bridgwater decorated with tissue paper on a 1.5m canvas featuring peoples' portraits and their memories.

These images as part of the art canvas was exhibited at Victoria Community Centre from 17th September - 2nd October 2011. For more information: SAW: Keepsakes at Victoria Park

Decadent Dreamer by Nisha Haq ft.Olivia Haigh, July 2011

What a gorgeous young woman she is! Being friends for over 3 years, it was time for a much needed collaborative fashion photo shoot. It certainly helps having friends as attractive as Olivia! As Bristol is a common meet up place for us, it was rather fitting to shoot in this wonderful vibrant city. (Shot in Cabot Circus and on Brandon Hill.) As I grew up in the South West far from big cities, when I'd visit Bristol it was always treat. The sense of fashion in Bristol is great and as my first editorial fashion shoot I just wanted to show the fashion of fun and youth. Girl About Town is about feeling chic in the city and that excitement and vibrancy.
