Air Bare: A Take on Minimalism

Air Bare is the creative team of mother and daughter duo Sarah and Lucy Jenkins, who use drone technology to capture images from a quirky and quizzical perspective.

Lucy is an architectural graduate who works for world-renowned company Foster + Partners in London, and Sarah is an artist who is confined to a wheelchair as she has muscular dystrophy. Sarah's hands are too weak to operate a conventional camera, however she is able to operate the drone with the remote control in her lap.

Together they have won awards, had several honourable mentions and shortlists, and have been published nationally and globally in high-end coffee table books, calendars and magazines. They were the winners of Capture Magazine's Australasia's Top Emerging Photographers' Single Shot category in 2021.
