My intention in my body of work was to express my love of drumming and the movements I perform while playing. My work recontextualises aspects of David Hockney’s photo collage ‘joiner’ series and was also inspired by photographer Gjon Mili, pioneer of strobe light photography. Cadenza relies heavily on structural elements of line and texture to represent movement, while the black and white palette develops dramatic depth. I conducted three photoshoots in darkness using a standard DSLR Canon camera, and the flash of a portable strobe light. I manipulated the images in Adobe Lightroom and pieced them together in Photoshop.
