POST SHOOT INTERVIEW WITH PHOTOGRAPHER CONSTANCE VICTORIA PHILIPS

Damaged / Goods: What led you to originally pursue a career in photography & the visual arts ?

Constance Victoria Phillips: I have always had a passion for fashion and the arts, and during my teenage years working out what avenue I wanted to pursue I took a photography course at my local college. At the time the course was aimed at 35mm and film photography and I just fell in love with this as a medium and became fully addicted to working in the darkroom. 
Since then my work has evolved and I now work with both digital and analogue mediums and after going to university to study photography and subsequently working within the industry for the last 8 years my passion for creating images with wonderful subjects is still strong.

Damaged: Who would you say is your ultimate inspiration ? 

Constance: I can't really pin down just one ultimate inspiration. I have always loved a huge amount of other photographers who continue to inspire my work today, but my inspiration on a day to day basis tends to come from the models I am shooting and the team I am working with. Every model is different and offers a different mood and character to a shoot.

Damaged:  How would you describe your personal aesthetic ?

Constance: My personal aesthetic fashion wise tends to follow my aesthetic in an artistic sense!! I am usually dressed in monochrome colours with a hint of colour now and then.. much like my work..!

Damaged: In terms of music, who are your top artists of the moment ?

Constance: I have a hugely eclectic music taste, Can't really pin down a genre I am into but artists I am listening to at the moment are Frank Ocean, Solange, Anohni, The XX, Kendrick Lamar.

Whats your damage ?

Constance: It's always been hard working in a very competitive creative field, and in this very unpredictable industry there are always huge ups and huge downs, but I think this has made me more passionate to succeed and create beautiful images that I can be proud of.

Whats your damage ?
