Artist statement

Dannielle Drayton, is a level three Photography student at Rotherham College. She will be progressing to the extended diploma in September.
She has loved nature ever since she was young. Her work here explores the relationship between light and flowers.
Dannielle loves how simple certain flowers can look, so at first, the theme was simply to be flowers in their natural environment; Dannielle looked into how to correctly use the mixture of light and flowers and with the influences of Harold Davis and Heather Angel, decided upon lighting the flowers in this way.
She believes the simplicity of the context, the style of lighting, and how the light illuminates the flowers, allows the viewer to focus fully on the content within the frame.
Dannielle has always liked more simplistic/minimalistic images, so this project was very fitting for her.
