Photo Description:
This last few months the media has been drowned in the horrendous images of the Syrian war and of the people desperately trying to flee their countries which was once their home but is now only rubble. For this piece I have looked into using boats and seascapes as a metaphor for the migrants fleeing and how isolated they must feel. This piece discuses how people are faced with humongous amounts of travel on rickety boats which they pay greatly for. For this piece I took influence from LS Lowery seascapes in particular and Anselm Kiefer's use of texture.
