The Dame, 2014

by Brock Elbank

National Photographic Portrait Prize 2015 Finalist

This year I’ve shot #Project60, a portrait series for Beard Season. During this project I discovered Harnaam Kaur. Harnaam has a condition called Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and as a result she has grown a beard. She has a wonderful positive energy and I simply wanted to have her sit for the series and be our ‘Dame’ of the project.
