Portraits and People

A photographer has teamed up with a floral designer and make-up artist to create a portrait series that's all about the stages of a woman’s life. 

The collection of 20 portraits, titled 'Layers' were captured in front of an evolving flower wall during a three-week period and layers of freshly picked British flowers were added to the wall as the project progressed. The ladies in the images are all from various backgrounds and all ages, from teens right up to those who are much closer to the 100-year-old mark, are featured in this celebration of womanhood. 

Flower layers were used to represent the growth and depth of wisdom women gain as life progresses while the ageing flowers on the wall indicate the passage of time.

"I wanted the backdrop to the portraits to change over time, with some elements fading, allowing new layers to be added,"  said floral designer Jo Wise who teamed up with make-up artist Jade Soar and photographer Asiko for the project.

The subjects and their life stories are the backbone to the exhibition and you'll see a Team GB gold medal winner, a journalist, a musician, an artist and a writer among the portrait collection who aren't airbrushed or over stylised so their faces can tell stories. 

"We've chosen women who - regardless of their newsworthiness - are strong role models for the younger generation," said make-up artist Jade Soar.

"The common thread that runs through all of the women is their belief in their path and their pride in who they are and what they do," added Floral designer Jo Wise. "We all felt strongly about a pro women project that explored the passing of time, inner growth and how our connection to nature changes as we grow older." 

"Layers" will be exhibited at Winter Pride Arts Awards Islington Arts Factory, London from 15 - 22 April 2016.
