Artist's statement

Feather is a local identity of Byron Bay and is known for her youthful and vibrant character. Each day she rides her bike into town and then walks around the precarious rocky headlands to little Wategos Beach where she makes a ritual of swimming in the Goddess Pool.

Winner of the People's Choice Award, National Photographic Portrait Prize 2015.
