After the photoshoot in the studio, I had over a thousand photographs, each representing a specific allergy. I arranged the images into the categories of:
- Cows milk/dairy
I was then able to select my favourite photographs, and compare each photograph to the other. For some categories, I had more images to choose from than others. For example, for the category ‘eggs’ and ‘milk’, there was a lot more images as I had incorporated movement within the images. Therefore, as an egg was being broken on top of the skull, I took several photographs within seconds to ensure the photograph was as dynamic as possible.
Each category is listed below with the relevant images.
