Meagan Pelham, 2017

by Lyndal Irons

National Photographic Portrait Prize 2018 Finalist

Artist Meagan Pelham’s ability to feel romance at every moment is brought to life in illustrations of mocktails, owls and weddings. She believes owls to be the most romantic animal, and the materials of her mask – felt, lace, glitter paint and wedding beads – reflect this. ‘I dream all the time and I like my dreams a lot.’
