Yhonnie and Indiana, 2012

National Photographic Portrait Prize 2014 exhibition

Winner, National Photographic Portrait Prize 2013

I met Yhonnie Scarce through the Dianne Tanzer Gallery in 2011 and have had the privilege of documenting her work ever since. When Indiana's health took a turn for the worse, just short of her 19th birthday, Yhonnie made a personal request that I capture a portrait of them together.
