Khamillah chose the ‘Transform’ question from the examination paper.  She started by looking at a broad range of artists who could be described as reflecting the theme ‘Transform’.  She created a double page spread collage of these artists.

Her photographs reflect the compositions of Cusicks work.  She has taken lots of different viewpoints and all the photos are in focus.  Wonderful!
