...even in darkness there's beauty
Portraits by Graeme Wienand   |   Blue Mountains, NSW Australia
"My primary concern is not to make people look beautiful. They are that already. Nor do I seek to glamorise because any such intention is an act in the service of ego. My aim for these portraits is more about the suggestion of an inner reality than the celebration of an outer one. Emotive psychological states, ephemeral forms, meditative presence, the spaces between thoughts. This to me is the stuff of greatest interest, in art and in life."
Graeme Wienand

“White Flower” - The flower escapes the bondage of the seed with only its gentle desire to be free.
Model: Jasmine Ghazi.
This portrait references Jasmine's connection by name to the jasmine flower. Jasmine's paper dress suggests white petals worn upon her body. In this portrait she embodies this flower archetype with a scattering of pollen through her hair and upon the table symbolising fertility. The photographic set consists of organic materials, wood, wax, paper and found objects.
