Needed to research my concept of banana leaves further so explored photographers that have seres involving leafs - found really beautiful imagery from Jackie Nickersons Terrains series that have given me a lot of shape and inspiration to work with for my drape with the body cast - I really want to involve a lot of leaf shapes and actual leaves in the drape to explore texture as well as shape. Pieter Hugo: 1994 had the most inspiriting and beautiful imagery in terms of concept - focusing on the children of the gencoide pictured them wearing western clothes combining my initial research together and producing very impactful photographs for me as the western world deserted Rwanda during the genocide even through due to them instigating it. Photographs also very much influenced colour palette.
