This image explores the story of an ‘unexplained event’. Two young boys discover strange heads made of stone whilst their Mother watches on from the window. The work explores the in between; a space between the familiar and unfamiliar, the imagined and the real. Cinematography, particularly based around thriller and horror, is embedded into my methodology whilst exploring themes of dystopia, the weird and the eerie. Can a lack of information about the ‘before’ and ‘after’ moments of a still photograph heighten a sense of uncertainty in the viewer?
