The Cornish of Cornwall
The Cornish of Cornwall is all about show casing the overlooked and the eccentricities of Cornwall by documenting the people and their places. It is not meant to be a picture perfect postcard but, shows what is at the heart of Cornwall, the people. It is for an audience who want to get a real perspective of what it is like to live in this beautiful county and to show it from a Cornish perspective.
The Cornish of Cornwall was inspired by satirical documentary photographer, Martin Parr particularly his work on Only Human. Tim Walker's The Granny Alphabet which I was particularly enjoyed a side by side image of a lovely lady in a yellow jumper places next to a jar of lemon curd. The reflection of the colour and by placing these two images side by side helped to tell a joyful narrative alongside the poetic verses that appeared on the page previously. The cover was inspired by the artist Dave Pollot for his satirical modern day still life paintings.
