Exposure № 075: Color, Texture


ward-winning 15-year-old photographer Eleanor Leonne Bennett tells us about some of her color photography this week. To see more of her black and white images go to Exposure № 073: High Contrast.

“Rain over oil” is a photo of an oil spill taken on a road in my home village.

“Time passes me” is a self-portrait. I’m kissing away the precious moments in time. It’s about letting go of something you never really had in your grasp.
“Urban decay – Morris Minor”: I have a Morris Minor car that is falling to pieces in my back garden. It’s a source of constant inspiration. It is fascinating to watch it fall apart and take photos of it doing so.
“Eleanor Leonne Bennett & Reza Deghati” was taken at the world photography festival in London, of the National Geographic Photographer Reza Deghati. It was an incredible day meeting him, the best day of my life photographing the world around me.
