This portrait of Indigenous actor, dancer, musician and storyteller, Trevor Jamieson, was made outside in the grounds of the University of Western Australia on a spring-stained Sunday afternoon in Perth, using natural light and a portable backdrop. Performing with the Ochre Contemporary Dance Company in a production called Kaya, Trevor was about to go through his warmup process before mesmerising a sold out closing-night audience.
