Isidro Ferrer

I was inspired in the last project (Wellspring) by Isidro Ferrrer, who Ian introduced me to. I have added some of his most inspiring works, I think that these work so well due to his vintage finds. Rather than using elements which are already loaded with meaning, he chooses older items which have lost their meaning to a modern audience. This is seen similarly in Eduardo Recife's work (seen earlier). To make my work more successful I need to source these older elements rather than working with Kellogg's cornflake boxes which look like a child has been playing with them.
Also, he draws into his photographs too, giving them more intrigue and make them more aesthetically interesting.
