New work from second year Amyleigh Fowles.
“Dotties is from one of the self-directed briefs we were tasked with completing. My intention was to combine my childhood love for Dalmatians (hence the title Dotties) with my area of specialisation, portrait photography. The outcome of this brief was informed by research into the popular culture that surrounds Dalmatians, the origin of the breed and the era of when the book, 101 Dalmatians was written which also informed the styling for the shoot.”
