Photographer Portia Hunt creates a soft and sensual statement of femininity and natural beauty with this self-portrait shoot, self-declared as “She who seeks”. Captured beneath auburn leaves and amongst the wild grass of an overgrown forest, Hunt creates an organic scene involving both human and natural elements.

The poses that she used throughout this shoot represent something almost lost and childlike, as though she is both searching and growing with her surroundings. The shoot is more a reflection on the internal emotions that can be derived through photography, as opposed to the fashion only that can be captured.

The woman that Hunt features herself as in this photography shoot is someone who doesn’t know where she is going, she hasn’t planned and discerned what her direction in life is. She is lost in the simplicity and the beauty of that which surrounds her, and so in accepting this beauty takes it on in her own way and form. Her journey through life is mirrored in this journey that she takes through the forest, and so in her path of discovery she reveals more than she knew about that which is around her and that which lives in her.
