Amy D'Agorne Craghill is currently in her final year at Edinburgh College of Art having just returned from an exchange studying Photography in the USA.
I’d have to say that over the passed year my style has begun to lean very much towards documentary photography, a lot of my work involving talking to and photographing strangers I meet on the street, some of whom have invited me back to photograph them in their houses. I find the connection that can be created with someone you have only just met to be really beautiful and humbling and try and demonstrate this beauty I see in everyday people through my images.
I am also extremely interested in how photography can be used a as a tool for social change, a path I hope to explore after I leave university.
Stimulating fear, excitement, guilt, joy, desire and restlessness it can activate the caudate, placed at the intersection of new knowledge and positive emotions, making us aware of the empty space between what we know and what we want to know.
