                  I recently had an assignment in History of Photography to emulate the style of one of the famous Pictorialist photographers. I chose Anne Brigman, because I think her photography is really beautiful and inspiring. Many of her photos depict women (often herself) interacting with nature.
                  Here's my attempt. These are all self portraits. I converted them to black and white and added grain in an attempt to make them look older. I also played with the sky in some of them, as Anne would often superimpose pictures together, creating surreal effects.

  4. Usually when I see a picture I don't look or think about the art behind it, but these pictures are amazing! I really like the one where you were playing with the movement.
