I was browsing through Grain Edit this week and stumbled upon the work of Dan Mountford, a student out of Brighton University (UK). The work comes from a series of his entitled The World Inside of Us. More images can seen after the jump. [Via Grainedit] ‘Dan describes this series as “a visual journey through our minds by calm and tidy means which the reality of everyday life does not show.” He explores the use of double exposure in his photographs, successfully isolating parts of an image in camera with no help from our friend Photoshop.’ I thought this work was very strong and visually compelling. I love his use of positive/negative space as well as his integration of pattern and schematic symbols. They tie in nicely with the photography and legitimize the works as design. I can’t help but bring up the work of Scott Hansen and Mark Weaver when I see these. Mountford’s works are very inspiring. They make me want to create a design-focused series of works; something I have wanted to do for a long time.
