Title ” She Blurs, She Runs”

Vertigo
The film Vertigo by Alfred Hitchcock had all my senses going crazy. The film focus around many themes, including: guilt, love, death, freedom and fear.

The two main character both had in common was fear. John has vertigo, causing his fear of heights. This fear caused him to take an abuse of leave from the police force for a bit of time. He wasn’t the same after an officer risked his life to try to save John from falling. The result of John not taking the office’s hand, was the office falling to his death from a building. Judy was fearful of losing the love of her life, John. Their whole relationship was based on a lie.

This body of work is influenced by the amount of fear portrayed from the film. The subject is slowly followed by some stranger. Slowly, but surely, she started to notice something is off. As you view the work, you will be able to see the natural beauty of the subject turn into paranoia, and than fear.

Based on the notes we took on Vertigo we were required to make a series of photos. Using themes and concepts from the movie the series should portray how we felt. I focused on the end scene from the movie where Madeline is pushed out of the tower. The most relevant image is the stairs since I contracted vertigo while taking it.
