How did you make this work:
This project depicts my experience seeing Queen Elizabeth II lying in state. The Queue made worldwide headlines and I felt compelled to capture this moment in history as I was fortunate enough to be part of it. It was a profoundly moving, once-in-a-lifetime experience. I wanted to convey the mood accurately; that the mood wasn't sombre but was instead overwhelmingly celebratory.
