Photoshoot: Media Control

This shoot was inspired by the idea that the public are always in a state of manipulation from the media.

I was inspired by the look of a ventriloquist dummy for this shoot, the puppet represents the public, and the unseen puppeteer is the media in control. This shoot was effective as I used I bright flash, which gives the photos a spooky blue hue which emphasises the unnatural and unhuman scene. The string used is worn and frayed, which further gives it an old and decayed feel.

My model retains an extremely blank expression during the whole shoot, except from the final picture where she ‘breaks free’. I did this to show how controlled and restrained the public can be, and perhaps to show that true happiness can only be gained after breaking free from the media.
