Louise Faulkner's entry in Australasia’s Top Emerging Photographers 2021 (presented by Fujifilm), Suspended I, is a featured portfolio, and appears in the Portrait category.
"With an aged, semi-functional GoPro in hand, I’ve spent Summer days at the beach and ocean baths exploring an underwater world of elegant legs, suspended seaweed, and people at play," Faulkner says. "I’ve fallen in love with the graininess of the resulting portraits, their vintage feel evoking memories of my own childhood holidays spent salt-waterlogged and happy. The challenge of capturing oceanic portraits with this tiny camera is my new obsession and delight."
Australasia's Top Emerging Photographers is the region's main platform for discovering and showcasing photographers at the outset of their careers and aspiring photographers. The competition is open to emerging, student, and amateur photographers. The prize pool currently stands at over $30,000.
