Clare and Bella, 2010

by Lee Grant

National Photographic Portrait Prize 2011 Finalist

This is a portrait of Clare Jolly and her cat Bella. Having recently worked with a 19th century collection of colonial studio portraits, I was inspired to frame Clare using a contemporary and colourful take on conventional vintage framing tropes.
