Gallery: Dream-like images secure top distinction for photographer

They may look other-worldly but these weird and wonderful images were produced surprisingly close to home.
Angela Adams was awarded the highest distinction in her field for the collection – taken in her garden, garage, and at a friend’s farm near Bungay.
She joined an exclusive group of less than one percent of professionals by becoming a fellow of the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers (SWPP), after submitting 20 photographs based on a fantasy land she created, known as Tudoria.
“My aim with the panel was to take complete ownership of its creation, and not photograph another’s work,” said Angela, who learned how to design foam before hand-crafting the armour, helmets, collars, cloaks and crowns. She also attempted hair design and make-up for a number of the pictures, trialed printing paper and put together an accompanying scrapbook.
“My only sadness is that my mother didn’t get to see the pictures, she was always a great advocate of my work,” she said. “It was apt I achieved this distinction on the first anniversary of her death. This panel is dedicated to her.”
