A third and final set of photography for this weeks Vilhelm Hammershøi Kick about over on Red’s Kingdom. A different earlier set in the process this time – taking notice and documenting light as it created various shapes against different elements within my home.

Shadows on my Wall #2
A second set of photographs inspired by the paintings of Vilhelm Hammershøi for this weeks Kick About. One thing I do appreciate in our home is the high ceilings, although I think I could do with a few more inches atop the doorframes.
Shadows on my Wall #1
This weeks Kick about over on Reds Kingdom is the art of Danish painter Vilhelm Hammershøi. Hammershøi’s paintings feel so breathy and poetic, Like you are peeking into the lives of the mysterious figures. I can’t help but think of a victorian doll house with all its little furniture placed exactly as the collector envisions. I was initially inspired by the gorgeous light throughout Hammershøi’s paintings and awoke at the crack of dawn to capture the sun as it pooled in through the shutters and windows where the light licked the walls, doors and wooden furniture. I decided last minute to perch myself in areas that could resemble the people in Hammershøi’s paintings and dressed myself in a darker colour palette to match. I edited out all the ugly stuff that could resemble a modern rented house in London, including cracks and fire exit signs. Our house is very old and shows a lot of wear and tear so removing those elements was exiting to get a glimpse of probably how it once was.
