Teach, Learn, Share

I find it very interesting how St. Clare combines photography with graphic design and typography. The way he uses graphic design to make the images stand out and how they blend so well – it almost looks naturally like that. His choice of colour isn’t too vibrant and the colours blend/go well together which, which has a massive effect to the minimal colour on the images. He uses transparency of the graphic parts to bring through the background, which has a very interesting effect with the overlays. His work will most definitely inspire me in my future work.
