Natalie Finney's entry in Australasia’s Top Emerging Photographers 2021 (presented by Fujifilm), Framed in a Fabric of Flora, is a featured portfolio, and appears in the Portrait category.
I set out to create this series of portraits to show a merging of the indoors and outdoors of our home; the two spaces that occupied us primarily during this year's enduring COVID lockdown. By incorporating the leafy vegetation and manipulating them into the image along with various fabric textures I had at hand, I sought to create a virtual tapestry to literally and figuratively frame my children within the space in which we dwelled.
