MY BRILLIANT FRIEND

THE BRIEF

Self initiated brief to create a new book cover for Elena Ferrante's 'My Brilliant Friend' using collage in Adobe Photoshop.

THE OUTCOME​

I was inspired by the prominence of the sea as a metaphor within the book, and so I used the sea as a heavy part of the collage because it acts as a significant catalyst to the two character’s lives and their view of the world outside the confines of their oppressive neighbourhood.
