16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People

Summer 2018. Notting Hill communal garden. This image was inspired by the mystical portrayal of women within Greek mythology and paintings. The subject’s own sense of divine femininity is expressed by her strong, yet graceful, Goddess-like pose. The soft quality of the film produced a painterly essence, similar to the delicate surface of skin achieved by oil paints.
