Eileen Agar was a British surrealist painter and object-maker. She also loved to take photographs when she was travelling around. This is her on a beach lying next to a plastic swan and a rubber shark.

She was playful and took photos from unusual angles.

Looking up from low down starts a story about being small. Look at the angle is Eileen Agar using to take this photograph. Where are you? What is going to happen next?

Taking a photo from above starts a story about being big and tall! Try snapping from different angles and telling stories to go with your photos.
