Testing the discomfort we face when we have to show who we really are, my images reveal storylines that lead to a discharge, a state of freedom.

#Repost @life_framer with @get_repost ・・・ FACES OF LIFE – We’re delighted to announce the winners from our penultimate theme of this edition, judged by renowned photography critic Katherine Matthews. • Honorary Mention by Richard Westerhuis (@richardwesterhuis) – ‘Charlotte’ from his series ‘Rubber Identity’. • Jury’s comment - “Drawing on a classical portrait aesthetic, Richard’s image of a woman in a vintage swimming cap is striking in its simplicity. The strange arch of her back and uncomfortable expression, along with the symbolism of the flowers on her cap, create a fragile and intimate moment. In Richard’s statement he describes how in hiding the subject’s hair he conceals and aspect of their identity, but her it seems we capture a glimpse into her true self – raw and honest.” – Life Framer • Head to www.life-framer.com/winners to discover the full shortlist and judge’s comments - twenty images that inspire and challenge in equal measure, celebrating creativity, diversity, honesty and self-expression. • #lifeframer #richardwesterhuis #facesoflife #conceptualphotography #portraiture #documentaryphotography #conceptual #socialdocumentary #visualsoflife #visualart #contemporaryart #exploretocreate #lifeframerstories

When our brains are made up of 75 percent of water, surely we are able to experience the deepest oceans in our imagination. The series 'Whanganui' celebrates the spiritual connection humans have with water. #whanganui #newzealand #water #underwater #photography #finearts #human #openness #expression #richardwesterhuis #portrait #outofcomfortzone

The series “Through The Second Skin” takes the cocoon we create to protect ourselves from the chaotic world and makes it tangible. It is a depiction of the journey one takes to break free from self-imposed solitary confinement to join the world again. #fineartphotography #richardwesterhuis #dabart #purebeing #stillness #catharsis #outofcomfortzone

Inspired by the rare success story of the Whanganui River being granted human rights in New Zealand, the “Whanganui” series plunges models underwater to explore what lies beneath the surface. #fineart #photography #underwater #bewatermyfriend
