in MASTER ART DIRECTION
by Leonoor Knulst
During this Master, I have worked on two photography projects where I search for the illusion in everyday life versus a series of sets and objects I build in the studio. In my publication, I look for the boundary between a real and a fictional space. Where do these worlds meet and how do they interact with each other? From the boundaries of the real world to the carte blanche in the studio, this non-existent space is what interests me.
In the process of building and making, I worked together with a set designer. As a still life photographer, this was an interesting collaboration and it gave me new ideas on props and set building. The technical process, the composition, the light, every item needs to be found from scratch and brought together in order to enhance the studio.
