Ice, Grace Sanchez.
“When I was younger, I truly loved drawing and painting. Even though this was only a hobby I had a passion for art, so I decided to explore it during my BA. I found myself looking at photography for inspiration and just fell in love with it. Looking at what other photographers did motivated me to want to learn how they did it. And so, this led me to do my Masters in Photography – within which my interests were concentrated in fashion. Currently, I’m a full-time photographer who is constantly looking for exciting projects to be a part of. I love photographing situations in a fashion context; I primarily enjoy having a fun theme or a quirky story to tell. The work of Miles Aldridge inspires me a lot because of his use of colour and the way he tells a story.”
“The ‘Ice’ story, was inspired by winter and the cold weather. It was done in a studio using garments made by designer Zara Oxborough. We had a vision for this project that we successfully followed through and achieved. You cannot look at this project without perceiving the frosty look we were going for. The winter designs inspired me to add cool colours such as the different shades of blue throughout the work, and for an even colder look, some are black and white."
