Nostalgia refers to a sentimental recollection of past moments. I wanted to evoke these emotions through a visual representation. Photographs tell stories and document our lives. I am passionate about photographs that reflect a period, as well as those that encapsulate raw, frozen moments in time. A Ferris wheel is a reminder of vibrant, youthful fun and the seagulls reference the phrase ‘as free as a bird’. Digital manipulation was used to attain the vintage effect, with the warm tones suggesting the joys of childhood.
