Photographer, Peter Knol, has submitted a photo shoot titled Tunnel Vision.
Mel Candish is a Western Australian designer from Capel, a small coastal town, which is surrounded by hobby farms and agriculture. For this collection Mel attributes her inspiration to her mother, who has been battling cancer for the past five years. The focus for these designs were 'being renewed', finding discarded textiles she hand-dyed the fabrics to give them new life. The rejuvenated fabrics were then crafted into light-weight wearable pieces that reflected her coastal surroundings.
Perth photographer, Peter Knol chose the Swan View Railway tunnel as the location for this project, the railway tunnel was built in 1884, carved from the granite it runs 340m. The use of the Swan View Tunnel gives the audience a feeling of being on a journey. Peter felt that Mel's designs coupled with Rebacah's natural beauty would provide a 'light at the end of tunnel' and add to the theme of 'being renewed'.
Crystabella Beauty (MUA) added to this concept by giving Rebecah a strong angular look, drawing her inspiration from The Amazons, strong warrior women who also had an air of regalia. Crystal's interpretation of this theme was focused on courage. Rebecah B Dunstan from Scene Model Management had a strong connection to this concept and designs, as she has also supported a family member through illness. Rebecah wanted the poses to feel strong and in control. Her facial expressions to portray courage and hope.
