Changemaker Profile



This piece is comprised of a stripped back series of portraits of the inspirational Lara Bloom. A blended triptych allowing you to see different sides of Lara (and her tattoos) all within the same image. Although we shot these as individual distinct portraits it just felt right and organic for them to be viewed together... separate parts coming together as part of a whole.
