A Calm So Deep, 2018

by Elizabeth Looker

National Photographic Portrait Prize 2019 Art Handler's Award

Dorotea asked if she could participate in the photographic study I have been working on for exhibition, The Spirit and the Flesh, capturing the energy and spirit within my subjects. She was so ready to ‘see’ herself, and to show herself to me. Open and honest, adventurous in self-exploration, she was vulnerable with her words and free in her movement.
