Venetia Dearden was recommended research for the first assignment, ‘My Square Mile’. She had a particular influence on my project as I too live in the countryside and am originally from Somerset, where some of her images are taken.
Venetia Dearden shows some of her work on her own website – http://www.venetiadearden.com/en/ – accessed 8.3.15. I particularly enjoy the images from ‘Somerset Stories Fivepenny Dreams’ – their soft focus and the soft light evoke memories of living in that countryside. The style of the photography captures the atmosphere of the place.
