These wonderfully surreal sculptures were made by Adam Graddon in his Exeter Studio. They made great subjects – and the camera obscura gave an aesthetic that echos the eras he takes much of his inspiration and artefacts from. The very narrow depth of field offered by the 4” lens meant it was important to be selective – picking out distinct features from each piece – sometimes slanting the lens to provide subtle shifts in the plane of focus to accentuate certain details.
You can see more of Adam’s work by visiting here – and he is also offering ceramic classes from his studios for all ages and abilities, as well as one to one tuition. For enquires – look at the Exeter Arts Hub website.
If anyone else is interesting in coming in to the studio and having their work (or themselves) photographed in a unique way then please get in touch, would be great to hear from you.
what beautiful little objects!
