Mountain Man

Mountain Man

I have produced these two images as part of a self initiated narrative based project. My aim has been to playfully pull together themes of 'the mountain man' for a book based outcome. Which will take on the persona of a job hunting brochure, cataloguing jobs available to the 'mountain man'. Specifically at this point focusing on aspects of the lumberjack trade. I enjoy working with quirky imagery, enabling narrative to form from within a single image. The images provide an insight to the 'traditional' daily routine of the lumberjack. I wanted to give tasks, which could at first appear mundane, an exaggerated or less obvious approach, leaving room for playful qualities in interpretation.
