Landscape on to cardboard

Sophie-Anne O connelle


These beautiful images of everyday landscape were recorded by Sophie -Anne O’Connell onto found card.Each image explores a different aspect of what could be termed as conventional scenes and each from a unique view point or perspective.
Sophie developed these ideas further by translating the imagery and retaining the colour palette into flowing printed scarves and shawls.
