Visual inspiration: Photographer Darran Rees captures the beauty by looking at the familiar, simple and mundane, in a different way. Let’s take a look…
Another interesting photographic project to get your creative juices flowing. This time we look at a small personal project by London-based photographer, Darran Rees.
In many ways, “One Year in Two Rooms. A Conversation with Myself” was many ways a personal challenge. Darran explains; “Spending a year in a small London flat and regularly making pictures inside the same walls, I was constantly surprised by the ever changing mood and nature of the same environment over time. Trying to find the beauty by looking at the familiar, simple and obvious, everyday and mundane, in a different way. Like having a conversation with myself”.
In his commercial projects, Rees works for a number of well-known international clients, agencies and brands. One of his favourites being assignments to remote regions like Peru, Africa and Mexico to document communities and artisans on behalf of the Fair Trade Charity Organisation. He has put together an interesting body of work, if you would like to see more you can visit his website, follow his Behance portfolio or find him on Instagram.
