I wanted to choose a series of photographs that have a common idea while evoking different feelings. How does the colour and texture in a picture create different moods. I sometimes ask photographers if they think content or aesthetics is more important in an image; in this series of pictures, the focus would be on the aesthetics and the effect it has on the viewer.
