Click to preview Flowers Only Grow In Dirt photo book

This book is a photographic presentation of my area of Wolverhampton, England, in my own eyes. Its a pretty negative and dull place to all senses; whether it's the sounds, smells or just the general sight. Over the last six months I have photographed my area to try and create a positive outlook on a negative place. Flowers only grow in dirt and so, this is my positive product, from a negative place, i hope you enjoy it.

Hi, i'm a 20 year old student, studying graphic design and photography at Kingston University. I have a growing passion for photography and try to work with as many other photographers and artists to gain new ideas, skils, and help others with theirs. My main photographic influences would at the moment are Rasmus Morgensen, and Yannis Tsipoulanis and Rene Habermacher, though i don't try to emulate their respective styles i still find them pretty inspiring Since coming to uni i've been influenced by many different things and seen, felt, tasted and heard alot more, but I'm always trying to improve my photographic technique and take my camera out with me as often as I can. I have one book out at the moment ( more to come hopefully ) about my the area i have lived in for the last 20 years. Creating my book has made me appreciate my surroundings more, and think harder before i point and click. Um, i guess thats all for now so peace out x
