Jan Glover – Portfolio 2021
The aim of my project was to photograph the Royal Botanic Garden, Sydney, using an iPhone camera. I planned to process the images to create an old-world look by decreasing contrast and adding slightly warmer tones – thus giving a nostalgic feel to the images of the Garden which was established in 1816.
After two visits Covid-19 lockdowns prevented further travel to the Garden, so subsequent images were taken in my neighbourhood on the North Shore of Sydney. Initially this presented a challenge as I missed the wide vistas, soft light and the exotic plants of the Botanic Garden. However the changes of seasons brought a variety of subject matter to photograph close to my home, and I was able to complete my portfolio with some degree of satisfaction.
The Portfolio was presented in a printed book, 30x30cm. Here are a few of the pages.
