2018 Finalists

Petrina HICKS

Artist statement: I am fascinated by the ancient reservoir of female symbolism, continually drawn upon and reinterpreted in art through time. I first photographed Deb in 2009, and over subsequent years, have taken further portraits. Deb is now a professional dancer and Yoga teacher. For this image, I was interested in her form and the sculptural possibilities of photography.
