An Evolving Portrait
Model: Leonardo Selinas
I photographed Leonardo in 2006 and then again in September 2013. At our initial meeting we created a series if images using objects from the natural world. These portraits made obvious references to nature and tribalism. In September 2013 I had the opportunity to photograph Leonardo again and I was fascinated to see the same theme, once again, play itself out. By 2013 Leonardo has carved a notable name for himself in Australian fashion as a designer yet in 2006 at our first meeting he was in the early stages of his career. This evolving portrait shows a maturity and a confidence notably in the second series which is in contrast to the boyishness of the first series. A memorable portrait series and the second stage of an evolving time line.
