Artist statement: ‘Birthday blues’ explores the theme of growing up. It tells a story of a young girl celebrating her birthday – waiting – patiently for her friends to show up. They never show up. I was referencing a reoccurring nightmare from my childhood. This image was created with digital photography and the staging of subject matter. The aesthetic references a warm and clean style created using balance, lighting, and emphasis through using the subject’s direction to create vocal point and direct the story. The art element of colour was used to communicate the setting, creating a cohesive final.
