“I am a fashion, film and documentary photographer from Horsham, originally from Hungary,” Audrey said.

“When I was 13, I had a brief encounter with the world of music, playing bass guitar in a rock band, but as time passed, I started to get more interested in fashion and so I started to go to castings and start modelling.

“I took part in Winchester fashion week and then as I got to know more and more people, I went onto to do bigger shows such as Oxford Fashion Week and was also selected as a finalist for Top Model UK 2014.

“At the same time, I was helping one of my friends get into modelling by helping her build a strong portfolio as a photographer.

“I was doing photography in college at the time to learn more about working with photographers in ways that could help me improve in my modelling career but then it hit me:

“I realised that I liked being behind the lens more than in front of it.

“As I got more and more interested in photography while retaining my love for fashion, I came across photographers such as David Lachapelle and Gregory Crewdson who have heavily influenced my early work.

“Nowadays, I am more inspired by films and directors such as Quentin Tarantino and Wes Anderson.

“The reason I did this exhibition is to showcase two years’ worth of projects containing fashion, colour and documentary shoots capturing places and people that are otherwise bypassed in everyday life. This is something that is very important to me whenever I embark on a new project.

“Editing to the images is minimal, giving an organic feel to the photographs and to make the audience appreciate real life as it is.

“The reason I did this exhibition now is because I thought my latest shoot was a perfect finish to this collection, which contains three chapters from my Route 66 project.”

This project is made up of digital and film photographs of places, clothes and colours and there is a whole chapter dedicated to fashion themed polaroids to give a timeless feel to the images.

Audrey continued: “Of course, Route 66 has got to be one of the most photographed places on the planet so I wanted to inject my own style into it to see it from a different perspective.

“There is a lot of other work showcased in the exhibition in addition to this and, as well as being a chance to showcase my style and my work, there really should be something for everyone!”
