Nostalgia

Nostalgia

This is my final piece for a university brief, when all students were asked to juxtapose two completely different things together into one image. For mine I chose giant goldfish and Victorian fashion. As a child I kept goldfish as pets, and grew very attached to them, so seeing a goldfish today always brings back nostalgic memories. I am currently writing a picture book for children, using this image as a starting point.
