This tulle portrait series honours the heroic healthcare workers from around the world, who’s strength and courage to care for others in the face of such vulnerability, is truly remarkable. In these works, the idea of a strength forged from fragility is expressed literally and metaphorically via the process of manipulating the delicate material into form. Collectively, I hope this series will represent a global ‘portrait’ of humanity’s greatest qualities, especially those of strength, courage and kindness, as demonstrated by these inspiring individuals.

In dedication to the heroic healthcare workers around the world, I will be creating this tulle portrait series in their honour. My intention is to create these works as my own form of gratitude meditation, as well as to give recognition to the anonymous healthcare workers who are hidden from our sights behind closed doors, hospitals and protective masks. Collectively, I hope this work will represent a global portrait of humanity’s greatest qualities, especially those of strength, courage and kindness as demonstrated by these inspiring individuals.
I will publish each portrait as it is completed, introducing each person by their name and place of work, via my social media channels and will endeavour to find ways in which the series can further benefit relevant causes in the future. Additionally, I hope the works will be exhibited together in the future and able to be seen in person. While the list of people contributing to our safety at this time spans many sectors, I will be focussing these portraits on the frontline doctors, nurses and care workers.
If you are, or know of, a healthcare worker who would like to be put forward for this project, please submit photos and details via the form below.
Front lighting or lighting slightly from the side is perfect.
Avoid back lighting, top-down lighting or harsh side lighting.
