Zena Holloway

While researching into underwater photography i came across the photographer zena holloway who focuses mainly on editorial and advertisement underwater photography. Her photographs straight away caught my attention because they are so dream like and ethereal, which is the look i am trying to create in my own photographs. 

The use of the fabric she uses in her photographs also creates such stunning photographs, she always uses she bright a vibrant fabrics against the pale skin of the model in the water which creates a eye catching contrast.

The colours are really striking in these photographs especially in the first two photographs, and this is for me what makes them so eye catching. Having the black background in the first two as well really highlights the contast between the two colours making the colours look even more bright and vivid.

I think this links really well into my own work because its all about the movement of the model and the movement of the fabric to portray a certain message, which is what i am trying to achieve in my own work. Also the magical and dreamlike look of the photographs help me see what i could achieve in my own work.
