My name is Nicole Rodrigues I am 21 years old. I am currently working as the head photographer at a modeling agency, but my dream is to open up my photography company. My love for photography started in grade ten when I took up film photography as my medium in art. From then on I’ve been hooked. I went on to study at Vega College and completed my course in 2013. My biggest love is fine art photography. I love photographing people and incorporating any form of fine art into my images. I also have a great love for crafting, particularly making dresses out of newspapers. I love being able to photograph my crafts be it on a person, on a mannequin, on anything. The work that I have submitted showcases three photographs of my fine art series based on clouds as well as my photographs of my craft making. These are just some of my favourite photographs.
I have always had an obsession with clouds and for this series I gathered a lot of inspiration from Alfred Stieglitz. These cloud images were taken all over Johannesburg and a few from a Lesotho trip. Although I have only sent three, I am still expanding my cloud series to make it bigger and better.
I have always loved creating things and crafting things since I can remember. I have also always wanted to make dresses out of newspaper. The chance for me to do this came in my second year at varsity when we got given the freedom to create anything we wanted for our portfolio. I, therefore, created newspaper dresses. Again I am in the process of expanding this series in the hopes of now making them fit people who can model them for in unique and creative ways. And as interestingly as possible without the dresses ripping. After all, they are made out of newspaper.
