The portrait project was started in 2010. I invited ladies to pose with flowers and tried to show each lady’s character and similarity to their chosen flower.
All the photographs connect to one main element- the woman posing for these portraits are of Eastern European origin. Most of them came to the United Kingdom with a hope for a better life. They are the beautiful and strong woman who overcome all the difficulties integrating into a different culture and finding their places and being the very important part in the community they are living in now.
The project is ongoing.
