Day of the Dead

  • Photography
  • University Project

The Day of the Dead photoshoot was completed for the photomedia unit and asked students to pick a culture and produce a series of photos showing an aspect of it. I chose the Mexican celebration of the day of the dead, and aimed to show the emotional aspect to it. Often when thinking of this celebration people understand it has face paint, but don’t see beyond that.

All makeup, costumes and lighting had to be sourced and completed ourselves. I aimed to source the most authentic material I could find, as well as do the best makeup possible.

Thanks again to Hannah Christie for being my model!
