I began last summer exploring the ‘Bum’. It started with a few sketches.
These sketches were taken from photographs I had captured of people walking around in cities. They were not posing for me, just carrying out their day to day business. This shows ‘The Bum’ in its natural environment (if that is even a thing). I feel these images show just how ‘The Bum’ moves and holds itself. The shapes interested me because they were not the stereotypical shape that you would expect.
Ultimately, I am intrigued by the varieties of Bums there are out there, and I want to know why I am interested and also, what I would deem to be ‘The Bum’. The one that is my favourite and therefore most appealing.
