About Me

HEY, I'M TEIGEN. A GRADUATE FROM LEEDS ARTS UNIVERSITY.

Teigen Bashford is a creative who is inspired by the concept of merging the boundaries between surrealism and reality by using creative direction skills such as photography, set design, casting and styling. Her work has always been considered of the editorial genre as it never is just an image, but a full story.

My final major project is the outcome of my experimentation expanding my typical style of abstraction and my new interest in set design, while maintaining a student budget. I sourced my materials from scrap sites; from my own and others waste then gave it a second life in my this surrealism dimension I was shooting in.

INSPIRATION

My project is about elevating the motive 'Waste Not Want Not' to a fantastical level.

My final project, Waste Not Want Not Wonderland has taken this idea and elevated it to suit a more conceptual approach, primarily focusing on sustainability. This hybrid of my eclectic style and the political incentive has resulted in a beautifully fantastical world being created from the typically useless and grotesque waste of the everyday. I intend for my shoots, which all share a mutual element of reimagining, to stimulate innovation in the fashion industry by showing the potential of waste.

Waste Not Want Not Wonderland was created by completing a variety of procedures and experimentations to identify the story being told. Throughout the project Bashford found inspiration from an assortment of sources including social media, paintings, songs, and other artists etc. and used these inspirations to spark an idea and advanced it to an editorial level by using the waste not motive, sourcing materials from scrap groups and editing in such a way to give new life to the original images.

MY WORK

PORTFOLIOS

DETAIL

I constructed sets for each shoot to aid my models in telling the story of Waste Not Wonderland.

I created sets for each shoot so my model could become the character I was imagining and interact with the set to deliver convincing imagery for this storytelling series.

Surrealism is destructive, but it destroys only what it considers to be shackles limiting our vision. SALVADOR DALI
